April Kirkwood tells her “Me Too” story about being an innocent young girl, growing up in Ohio, from a typical dysfunctional yet loving family, and her three decade affair with singer Frankie Valli. They met when she was a mere six years old, going with her family to see him perform, and when she turned sixteen he selfishly seduced her in his hotel room. She thought it was love, and if she hung in there she could be the next Mrs. Valli. But, Frankie was already married, had a daughter April’s age, and he had no intention of marrying her. Regardless, April was hopeful and waited. This is a story of a young girl falling for a man using his celebrity status to get what he wants, regardless of the consequences.
