Frankie and her husband, Mike, have lived in Orson, Indiana their whole lives. A man of few words, Mike is a manager at the town quarry and Frankie is the third-best used car salesman at the local dealership. She may not be a high-powered career woman, but when it comes to her family, she'll go to just about any length. And with kids like these, she had better. There's Axl, her semi-nudist teenage son conceived with Guns N' Roses playing a significant role; Sue, the awkward teenage daughter who fails at everything with great gusto; and their seven-year-old son Brick, whose best friend is his backpack.
