The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

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.
