The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
The following is a review from one of our FabulousReads followers. Please check it out.
Title: The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
Author: E. Lockhart
Reviewer: Emily Marie
Genre: YA Fiction
Alerts/Warnings: Some references to teenage sex, nothing explicit
Premise: "Sophomore Frankie starts dating senior Matthew Livingston, but when he refuses to talk about the all-male secret society that he and his friends belong to, Frankie infiltrates the society in order to enliven their mediocre pranks." (King County Library)
Opinions: This book was amazing. Frankie Landau-Banks enters her sophomore year at an exclusive private school having blossomed over the summer. She lands the hot senior boyfriend, but soon grows increasingly annoyed over everyone underestimating her because she’s so pretty. Frankie is an impressive female heroine – strong willed and determined while still managing to seem like your mostly-average teenage girl. I absolutely loved her, and some of the pranks in this book are completely laugh-out-loud hilarious. Read this book, you’ll love it too!
