Lockhart, E. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. New York: Hyperion, 2009. Genre: Contemporary Intended Audience: Grades  7-up Personal reaction to the book This book was just what I needed. I was sick of cardboard female characters who only cared about falling in love. Frankie, the heroine in this novel, figured out a way to outsmart the old boys club all-male secret society at her boarding school. She infiltrates the patriarchal system and makes the boys do her bidding.
