Inhaltsangabe zu "The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks"

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

    A good story but a little bit boring

    Franky is a Bunny Rabbit. A good girl, a silent girl and almost invisible. Till she falls in love with Matthew Livingston. And he has a secret. The same secret as Frankies father and a lot other man who went to her school. Matthew is a leader of a secret society called the Basset Hounds. They are all troublemakers but loyal to the society till they die. Frankie somehow wants to be part of the club not only to be more part of her boyfriends life but also because she can't accept that there only man can be leaders. So she creats an anonyme e-Mail-account to be part of the group. But Frankie doesn't realize how dangerous her do something can be.

    I read the book because a friend of mine told me it was awesome. And I also read "We were liars" from the same author which drive me crazy. So i think I had a little bit a to high expectation of the book because I was a little bit disappointed. The story as it was really brilliant and I liked the idea how a good girl become a bad girl without knowing it but i think it could have been a little more thrilling and a plot twist would have been very good. But to my opinion no other book by E. Lockhard can keep up with "We were liars"!
