Yet deep within herself, a secret part of her she calls Freaky Green Eyes knows that something is terribly wrong. And only Freaky can open Franky's eyes to the truth.

Freaky Green Eyes was such a good book. I had to read it for english indepenedent reading. AT first I was a little unsure but once I started it...I couldn't put it down. it was so compelling and such a gripping story. Franky was a great character to connect with. Anyone (boy or girl) could feel for Franky, especially when Franky was dealing with the disappearence of her mom. Now I always say "i love you" to my parents because this book really made you realize how lucky you are to have a loving family. this book is highly recommeneded. Everyone should read Freaky Green Eyes. Amazing!

The "Freaky Green Eyes" moniker just doesn't fit the story. It is if the author picked that title, then had to make mention of it at least once each chapter to keep the book and its title tied together.

I did not think this book was appropriate for young teens. I cannot cite specific examples without ruining the story for those who choose to read it. Teenagers have enough problems with depression, love, etc to be reading story lines such as this. Definitely not appropriate for pre-teens.

I happen to think that this book is very suitable for teenagers,pre-teens maybe not so much, but the content isnt graphic or anything like that at all.

Its about a girl who's parents decide to seperate and she doesnt know who to believe, her mother or her father.This is a topic that applies to a lot of people.Everyone can relate to this weather they had a first hand experience or maybe it was a friend,or a relative.Either way everyone has heard about parents seperating and those kinds of things should be told.

Anyways,I believe that Freaky Green Eyes was very well written and thought out.

This is abook about a girl named Francesca(Franky). This is from her side of the story. She tells about her life and what she does when her mom disappears. At first she is angry but then the clues lead up to something that she knew all along but didn't want to accept.
A great book, i reccommend this to everyone.

Franky Pierson is first introduced at a party where she was the youngest one there. She thought about running home when she caught the eye of a college student. After a few beers, he started kissing her and he almost raped her, but she stopped him. He told her she had freaky green eyes.

Her father, Reid Pierson, was a former football star and a sports newscaster, so he was a public figure. Her parents relationship started to crumble, but was hidden from Franky and her sister, Sam, and the outside world. Her half-brother Todd didnt care about Franky and her sister, and didnt have any answers to the problems going on. Her mother, Krista, started going to her cottage in Skagit Harbor, where she was able to paint freely, for days at a time. She would come back when Reid would leave.

Frankys father started telling her, Sam, and Todd that their mother was in her own zone and not to bother her. One day, he finally consented and let Franky and Sam go visit their mother at the cottage. There, they met Kristas new friends, including Mero Okawa. One day, their father arrived early to take the girls home. He said that their mother had fallen in love with another man and they could never forgive her.
Frankys mother started calling frequently, but she never answered. Finally, she answered the phone and talked to her mother, ending the conversation and telling her mother that she hated her.

Then, Krista had disappeared, along the Mero Okawa and there were rumors that they were having an affair. Reid hired a lawyer and told his kids to say that he had nothing to do with her disappearance. Franky has a dream that called her back to Skagit Harbor and she finds a diary that her mother hid, providing answers to all her questions, including her disappearance.

I thought that this book was really good. Once I started it, I had to finish the story. The story had a lot of issues going on, like rape and abuse. Reid abused his kids and his wife. The story was kind of predictable. This book mixed suspense with issues going on in the world today. This is a quick read and very well written. Id recommend this book to anyone.

I was a bit wary of the book, because of its title. But after I read it, I could not put it down. It has so much visual imagery, it feels like you are right there in the story, feeling what the main character, Franky, is feeling. This book is about a 15 year old girl named Franky who is the daughter of RoReid Pierson, celebrity sports newscaster. Throughout the story, a more stronger, confident, aware side of herself comes out, which she calls "Freaky Green Eyes".
Freaky allows Franky to see things she never noticed before, like the degrading relationship between her mother and father. Franky, her sister, and her brother always take Dad's side, because he is strict and cunning. Then thier mom leaves the house, to go to her own place. Franky doesn't know for sure why. It could just be a separation, or something else more violent and abusive. It's up to Franky, or "Freaky", to go and find out what it is. And the truth about her father.
This book really keeps you on the edge of your seat. You feel so bad for Franky's Mom, who is being abused by her husband. I hated Ried, making his children hate thier mother. It was so interesting to see how Franky dealt with it all: the abuse, the interviews, her relationships. She grows stronger throughout the book, while at the same time being an average teenager. Many girls can relate to her. Her situation is realistic and touching. It's such a good book, and I recommend it for all. It has the all of the elements of an awesome young adult novel, plus it's by a great author.
