What does you in—brain or heart?

Frannie asks herself this question when, a week before she turns fifteen, her dad dies, leaving her suddenly deprived of the only human being on planet Earth she feels understands her. Frannie struggles to make sense of a world that no longer seems safe, a world in which one moment can turn things so thoroughly for the worse. She discovers an elegant wooden box with an inscription: Frances Anne 1000. Inside, Frannie finds one thousand hand-painted and -carved puzzle pieces. She wonders if her father had a premonition of his death and finished her birthday present early. Feeling broken into pieces herself, Frannie slowly puts the puzzle together, bit by bit. But as she works, something remarkable begins to happen: She is catapulted into an ancient foreign landscape, a place suspended in time where she can discover her father as he was B.F.—before Frannie.

What does you in-brain or heart? Frannie asks herself this question when, a week before she turns fifteen, her dad dies, leaving her suddenly deprived of the only person on Earth she feels understands her. She discovers an elegant wooden box with an inscription: Frances Anne 1000. Inside, Frannie finds one thousand hand-carved and painted puzzle pieces. Feeling broken herself, she slowly puts the puzzle together, bit by bit. But as she works, something happens. She's pulled into a foreign landscape, a place suspended in time where she discovers her father as he was B.F.-before Frannie.
This story moved like a piece of a puzzle. Confusing at first, but piece by piece the reader finally gets the whole picture of why the puzzle was so important to the father.
Frannie's emotions bounce around from page to page. I felt the author did do a good job of showing the struggle Frannie felt when her father died and trying to make sense of it all. Her friend Jenna was a little too ditsy though. What friend really blows off someone who's father just died? I didn't believe it.
A fast paced read that is hard to put down. You can't help but want to follow Frannie as she discovers not only more about her beloved father but about herself as well.

First I wanna say that the story line itself was interesting...a young girls dad dies and leaves her everything. She later discovers a hand made puzzle he made for her and begins a journey of discovery, about her father and possibly herself. She tries to deal with her dads death and is pretty snobby to those around her because they are out living their life and not moping and whining around with her. I don't wanna go in to detail though as that would spoil it. What I will say was that I hated Frannie with a passion. She was selfish and acted like a baby most of the time. I kept thinking she was nine by the way she acted but when I went back to the beginning it reminded me she was 15!!! I couldn't believe it. She thought that everything should revolve around her, she stopped talking to her best friend for awhile because her friend brought up something that had nothing to do with her dad dying. Really???? What I really couldn't figure out was why in the heck when she saw that her dad left a hand made puzzle with the number 1000 on it she didn't understand what that number meant. I am pretty sure most 15 yr olds could figure it out. This was the worst character I have ever encountered in a book and I had a really hard time getting through the book because of her. Honestly, I thought most of her thoughts and actions were dumb. As a main character she made no sense and I felt nothing for her other than she was just plain immature, and although I know most young people that age can be, I just felt her immaturity was over done.

I admit I got this hoping it would be funny, so I was somewhat disappointed when it was more mellow. It's a good YA book in general though not very remarkable, in my opinion. I found myself a little bored, but then again I've sort of grown out of the genre now that I'm no longer in high school. I'm sure someone younger who can relate to Frannie will enjoy it more than I did.
