The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

E. Lockhart Emily Jenkins
"Frankie is smart, sharp, funny . . . and possibly a criminal mastermind"

Frankie is smart, sharp, funny . . . and possibly a criminal mastermind

"As a girl, Frankie knows she is supposed to play by the rules, but the rules were made by Old Boys for boys and therefore are not her rules to begin with." – THE NEW YORK TIMES

So Frankie Landau-Banks decides to take matters into her own hands, outsmarting the secret all-male society at her rich kid boarding school by tricking the members, including her own boyfriend, into believing her increasingly outrageous commands are their leader's.

Undaunted by her male peers, Frankie contests the old-fashioned idea that it's the boys who rule the school proving that girls are not to be dismissed – even by her own father, a former member of the all-male society himself!

Witty and sharp from the author of We Were Liars, this book will "challenge girls' images of themselves, who they are in relation to boys and why." – THE NEW YORK TIMES
