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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fern | 11/16/2013

    " Great Teen book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kari Rives | 10/24/2013

    " This book was amazing. I keep my standards pretty high when it comes to books, too. I think E. Lockhart is a genius and this is one of the best books I read in the summer of 2011. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephy Weidmann | 9/19/2013

    " A feminist manifesto for the millennial set. Frankie turns the normal tropes of YA chick lit (be self depricating, get the guy, your problems will be solved) on their heads. She's a bad ass, whip-smart and she knows it, I love her. Bonus points for Foucault references. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dona Marie | 9/10/2013

    " Girl power. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendall | 6/2/2013

    " i had really high hopes for this, and it just fell flat. Frankie really annoyed me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tilden | 5/12/2013

    " Frankie has a lot of spunk and refuses to be the "nice" girl everyone wants her to be. Review in my NOTEBOOK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/7/2013

    " It was originally a 3, but the ending changed my mind. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gussy | 4/15/2013

    " Liked it, didn't love it. Although I did think that it had a decent message with a little girl power thrown in. Probably would have enjoyed it more if I had gotten to discuss it with my book club. Worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zeytah | 12/10/2012

    " I feel "gruntled" after reading this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie H. | 10/9/2012

    " I loved Frankie. My girls could both turn out like her and I would be thrilled. Great read. My oldest is not too far away from me passing this one on to her. She will love it. Right up there with 'Stargirl' for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 4/27/2012

    " great story; great characters; loved the INPs or inpeas (imaginary neglected positives)and FNPs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lacey Duckett | 10/12/2011

    " I loved how bad ass the main character was. Who says women can't kick some guys butts! ;) However, I reviewed it threw stars because it is a very teenage-y book. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone over the age of 18. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 5/20/2011

    " This book is laugh out loud funny. Frankie, Matthew, and Alpha are all incredibly clever and witty. A very enjoyable read. The ending was a little bit sad, but realistically, it is what would happen.

    Warnings: There are a few sex references and teen drinking. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Suzie | 5/20/2011

    " This is to feminism what Nickelback is to music: not.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/10/2011

    " I'm so glad to see more in-your-face young women protagonists! Frankie may not be your Katniss Everdeen, and while her motives to be in the "boys club" because it's seemingly more fun to be a boy than a girl, she's a young woman who challenges expectations.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/4/2011

    " This is the perfect girl power book. I love this strong female character. She rocks! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 5/2/2011

    " It's pretty good, but I feel like they focus too much on teenage girl drama instead of the gender roles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitilen | 5/1/2011

    " This is about a Girl who will not let any man mess with her:) I Love it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa | 4/28/2011

    " pete said that frankie's the anti bella swan and that's pretty true. mostly it's a book about falling in love and questioning everything about that whole mess. some really great points about the expectations of society. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fred | 4/27/2011

    " When you hook up with a jerk, does it make you a "strong female character" when you realize he's a jerk? "

About the Author
Author E. Lockhart

E. Lockhart is the author of a number of teen novels. She has had nine official boyfriends, if you count the boy who asked her to go with him at a 7th grade dance and then basically never talked to her again. She has never been on a sports team of any kind and got excused from gym class by going to ballet lessons. She has a tattoo, cuts her own hair, and has worn the same perfume since high school (Kiehl’s Chinese Flowers). In her office are two Betty & Veronica dolls, a photo of a particularly fat bull dog, an official business card from “Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective,” and the 1920s flapper dress she wore to the prom.
