Today I'm reviewing The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart.
Summary From Goodreads:
Frankie Landau-Banks at age 14:
Her father’s “bunny rabbit.”
A mildly geeky girl attending a highly competitive boarding school.
Frankie Landau-Banks at age 15:
A knockout figure.
A sharp tongue.
A chip on her shoulder.
And a gorgeous new senior boyfriend: the supremely goofy, word-obsessed Matthew Livingston.
No longer the kind of girl to take “no” for an answer.
Especially when “no” means she’s excluded from her boyfriend’s all-male secret society.
Not when her ex boyfriend shows up in the strangest of places.
Not when she knows she’s smarter than any of them.
When she knows Matthew’s lying to her.
And when there are so many, many pranks to be done.
Frankie Landau-Banks, at age 16:
Possibly a criminal mastermind.
This is the story of how she got that way.
Review after the jump!
Review: From the description on the back of the book, I really expected to enjoy this book. I did enjoy it, but it was a little slow paced and drug out for my tastes. I liked the underlying message about changing the establishment and the pranks were pretty epic, but overall the story fell a little flat for me even though Frankie was quite the mastermind. I would recommend that you check it out from your local library instead of purchasing.
Rating: 3/5 stars
