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. Chosen as a 2009 Michael L. Printz honor book Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “It would be a mistake to underestimate this novel—or its protagonist…[Frankie] will challenge girls’ images of themselves, who they are in relation to boys and why…The novel holds out the hope that a girl like Frankie—who has above all an unwillingness to settle—would grow up to change the world. The Disreputable History not only delivers the line, but somehow makes you believe it is true.”

    New York Times

  • “Big ideas are an essential part of the fun in this sparkling tour de force…An exuberant, mischievous story, it scores its points memorably and lastingly.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
