Frances by Graeme Clifford( Visual )

29 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of a small-town girl who tasted the glory in Hollywood and on Broadway, and then went on to lead a life in which everything went wrong. After winning a nationwide high school essay contest, Frances takes up acting, and escapes Seattle by winning a trip to Russia, ending up a contract player for Paramount Pictures in Hollywood. Frances continually bucks the system, and her refusal to play the game gets her in trouble with studio bosses, publicity people, everyone. Her strong-willed mother steps in to help her, and that's when her troubles really begin--series of hospitalizations, brutally mistreatment, and finally, a lobotomy. Frances never really got a chance to be who she should have been, or to do what she could have done. She had every gift she needed in life except for luck, useful friends, and an instinct for survival
