Alex and the Amazing Dr. Frankenslime


Using her wealth of experience as a marriage and family therapist working with troubled children and teens, Desannoy provides an enlightening look at the world of a 12-year-old girl dealing with her father’s alcoholism, her parents’ separation, and the process of healing through psychotherapy.


Alex and the Amazing Dr. Frankenslime is a universal story for young people who need help dealing with tough circumstances, for parents who have difficulty hearing what their children are saying directly and indirectly, and for all those dealing with serious family problems. Preteen Alexandra struggles with mixed feelings over her parents’ separation, brought on by her father’s drinking, hitting and abandonment of his family. Youths dealing with the death of a loved one, loss of a friend, parental drug abuse, sexual abuse, and/or emotional abuse identify with Alex`s feelings of fear, guilt, shame, depression, frustration, confusion, hopelessness, isolation and loss.
