To be honest, I really don’t like books told in the third-person point of view. I also do not care for books with unnecessarily long titles. A book title should be no more than four words long, and it should not, at any point, involve a hyphenated last name. But despite all of these un-preferences of mine, I loved this book–a book with an unnecessarily long title, told in third person.
Frankie Landau-Banks is the daughter of rather average parents, but her father happens to make a bit more money than most dads. So she goes to Alabaster Prep, a very prestigious private boarding school which is located, as all prestigious private boarding schools are, just north of Boston. And at this prestigious private boarding school there is, of course, a secret society. Because what would a prestigious private boarding school be without one? And, of course, this secret society is all-male.
Until Frankie Landau-Banks comes along, that is.
