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

4 stars

An easy fast read – at the beginning, it almost felt like you’re being told things in point form (Almost!) but it was okay, it wasn’t exactly point form as such and it got things off real fast!

Frankie Landau-Banks is growing up and breaking out!  She’s feeling absolutely confined and is exploding from the inside out.  She’s feeling that no one understands her, no one respects her (ie. being underestimated all the time and looked over), and she’s had enough.  She no longer wants to be invisible nor excluded.  And so, she plotted and schemed and where did it get her exactly…?

I think I’m a little bit more like ‘Trish’, Frankie’s room-mate, because thinking back to my teens, I don’t recall ever being / thinking like Frankie.  So sometimes I feel like shaking her but being older and more mature *so I hope*, I also feel a little bit sorry for her.  Feeling excluded is never a good one and especially when you’re a teen.
