The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

Frankie Laundau-Banks is 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.

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.

    Story
    "Thought it would be fun"
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I thought this book might be fun to listen to. It was a fairly entertaining story, but I have to say it lost me when the 15 year old girl was encouraged to go to Planned Parenthood to get condoms. With all the gruesome things going on there, I was really disappointed that the author would direct girls that young there, and it kind of soured the story for me.

    "It is AMAZING "

    Frankie Landau-Banks is a leader to all women that it is better to be alone than to be with someone that undermines you.

    "Girls Rule!"

    Excellent young adult literature promoting feminism. Women with ambition, intelligence & self esteem - or those who want it will enjoy this novel - no matter what their age. Even though the setting is a prep school, the story has universal appeal. It takes a woman to get it done - brilliantly!

    Story
    "Feminism overdone (and I'm a feminist)"

    I liked the idea of this book, but the context is new england prep-school and the rich kids who attend. I liked the fact that the main character was an empowered young woman but the author made her out to be overly analytical and overly sensitive. Perhaps I just didn't get it, but the writing bugged me a bit as well so... Either way, it was entertaining but nothing to write home about. I need something a little more exciting.
