The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

I had the chance to read the ARC of E. Lockhart's The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, scheduled to be released in March.

Let me tell you, page-turner. Fun. Memorable characters. And definitely a story you don't want to miss.

Returning to her boarding school, Frankie Landau-Banks has blossomed into a knockout. And she's now noticed by boys who hadn't noticed her before, including her new popular boyfriend, Matthew, who introduces her to a group of boys that are vibrant and so very fun. One thing Frankie still has with her transformation is a chip on her shoulder. She doesn't want to be overlooked for her looks or patted on her head for being a female, she wants in--as in an all-male secret society that her new boyfriend belongs to, not to mention a society she's not even supposed to know about.

So when Frankie finds the coveted tell-all book for the history of the secret society that is filled with past gags and school pranks, Frankie wants to prove that she has the smarts to pull them off on her own, one by one...

Characters you can't help want to know, and a story that engrosses you from page one, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is packed with female smarts, hilarious pranks, and so many interesting secrets that are meant to be broken!  Be a part of the Frankie Landau-Banks society and check out this cool novel in March. :)
