Frankie Neumann's always felt like the black sheep of his family. Compared to his tutu-wearing nightmare of a sister and his parents, Bridget and Brett--Frank Sinatra and Dr. Frank-N-Furter impersonators, respectively--he's the odd man out in a family of performers; he's the introvert nobody ever sees. But Frankie's got his own secret artistic aspirations, and they're about to get him swept up in the art adventure of a lifetime.
When Frankie's approached by David and Rory, cousins and errand runners for the notorious and anonymous street artist Uncle Epic, they make him the offer of his dreams. They want him to join their crew, and Frankie can hardly believe his luck. Not only is Uncle Epic his absolute idol, but Rory's the hottest girl in school. Their renegade-art capers allow Frankie's talents to flourish and even give him the chance for revenge against his insufferable sister--payback for years of torture. But soon, the lines between art and real life start to blur, and Frankie has to find a way to rein in the chaos before things spiral out of control.
Told partly through graphic panels, Kirstin Cronn-Mills and E. Eero Johnson's novel is hilarious, heartfelt, and fiercely original--a tale for anyone who's ever felt invisible.
