Publisher's Summary

Frankie Landau-Banks at age 14:
Debate Club.
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.

Frankie Laundau-Banks.

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 is 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.

It's cute!

A very cute book, while I wouldn't recommend it to another 23 year old woman, it would be a nice book for young teen girls to read for them to know that they are just as smart and capable of doing anything that a man can.

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.

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.

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.

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!
