Book Review #546 - The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart


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 Landau-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'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.

My Rating: 3/5

This is my second E. Lockhart book. I really enjoyed We Were Liars but unfortunately this book didn't really do anything for me. 

I had heard so many positive things about this book prior to reading so I had really expected to love it. 

To be honest, I just really found the plot boring. I found myself constantly waiting for something to happen and it didn't. 

I did like the protagonist though. I thought she was unique, independent and determined.
