Frenching Violet Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Frenching Violet

The story is set in '69-'70 in Louisville, KY and spans the seventh-grade year in a parochial school. Twelve-year old Chas Huckabee is grounded for having been kicked out of school at the end of the school year. From this vantage point he tells his very funny story of the rigors of the early stages of puberty, a tumultuous relationship with a comically protrayed older brother, and the lessons of loyalty, betrayal and friendship. One of the book's greatest strength is the narration by 12-year old Chas Huckabee. It has an authentic, slightly southern ring to it and it's just as entertaining hearing the voice in your head as following the story itself. It's fast-paced, amusing, and at times hilarious. Maybe I can relate to it because I too was raised a Catholic.
