The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart – review

In her sophomore year, she meets Matthew Livingston, who is a senior and part of a secret organization of the academy known as the Loyal Order of frankkie Basset Hounds. The hottest guy in school is also called Matthew, though, Alpha was most definately my favourite.

The schoolwork is interesting! Yes, the others may have thought the problem was with Frankie and not the rest of her insular world. Franki blend of intelligence and condescension. When she discovers his involvement in the male society of the Basset-Hounds, her behaviour becomes increasingly fixated, immature and obsessive.

And I typically do pretty long reviews. In refusing to be simple and sweet you assume that the simple and sweet are stupid and weak.

And the book would sometimes throw out names of people that had never been mentioned like you were supposed to know who they were. I wouldn’t put this one in my top ten of the year. Frankie hadn’t liked herself while she’d been yelling at Porter–but she had admired herself.


She will not be what people tell her to be. Parent of a 12 and 15 year old Written by lady of the library March 11, Sometimes a guy is always going to choose his friend over his girl. Unfortunately as the novel ended Frankie had not learned a lesson or changed her ways. Learn how we rate.

Yet, the final prank -the theft and later return of a guppy statue- goes too far, and Alpha is accused of spearheading the stunt. Thus, the character of Frankie, of a girl who wants to be known and loved for herself, for her potential, for her brilliance and not for her ability to listen to her boyfriend, do what he says, and agree with his every action, is startlingly refreshing. But Matthew only wants her as a needy, comfortable, cute companion. Act like a 15 year old girl and rag Matthew about spending so much time with his friends?

Like a little kid sibling that wants to do everything and be everywhere their older sibling is. She refuses to take things lying down.

Unfortunately for this book, there’s no doubt it won’t be landing my top 10 for Maybe not 5 stars any more, but still worthy of a read. This is neither here nor there. Check it out for more reviews! And a pathetic one at that. Thank you for your support. OK, there are practically a billion songs I could go with for this. Frankie is by no means a perfect character. Yeah, she ate them to prove him wrong.


Maybe another reason I didn’t connect with Frankie was the brisk tone of the book. I later learned that the reason this was a good thing was because frankue money paid on behalf of my father and brother went to buying gifts for me, which obviously placated me immensely because that just meant Kf BOOKS, but by the time I learned this it was just a little bit too late for my inner-feminist to recede inside me. Furthermore, I didn’t even like any of the characters, and Frankie the main character Blah.

Blame it on the tense. The story spoke to me on many levels and addressed issues that I have written articles on and feel very strongly about.

She will not be what people tell her she should be. A main subject of course is feminism.

Furthermore, I didn’t even like any of the characters, and Frankie the main frankir was written as if she’s supposed to be the smartest, wittiest kid around, and I just didn’t get that.

And if you ask me, Frankie’s whole “I’m an independent woman” campaign never stops backfiring.

Next time I see a year-old girl reading TwilightI will promptly yoink it from her hands and replace it with this.
