  • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

    The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
    Frankie Landau-Banks at age 14: Debate Club. Her father's "bunny rabbit." A mildly geeky girl attending a highly competitive boarding school. Frankie Landau-Banks at age 15: A knockout figure. A sharp tongue. A chip on her shoulder. And a gorgeous new senior boyfriend: the supremely goofy, word-obsessed Matthew Livingston. Frankie Landau-Banks. No longer the kind of girl to take "no" for an answer. Especially when "no" means she's excluded from her boyfriend's all-male secret society. Not when her ex-boyfriend shows up in the strangest of places. Not when she knows she's smarter than any of them. When she knows Matthew's lying to her. And when there are so many, many pranks to be done. Frankie Landau-Banks, at age 16: Possibly a criminal mastermind. This is the story of how she got that way.

    Noel, Jackson, Finn, Hutch, Gideon--and Me,...
    E. Lockhart offers a hilarious and realistic look at the trials and tribulations of being a teenager in her third Ruby Oliver novel. Find out what the real treasure is in Ruby’s life as she creates a treasure map of people she cares for and who return her feelings.     Ruby is back at Tate Prep, and it’s her thirty-seventh week in the state of Noboyfriend. Her panic attacks are bad, her love life is even worse, and what’s more:   ·        Noel is writing her notes, ·        Jackson is giving her frogs, ·        Gideon is helping her cook, ·        and Finn is making her brownies. ·        Rumors are flying, and Ruby’s already sucky reputation is heading downhill.   Not only that, she’s also:   ·        running a bake sale, ·        learning the secrets of heavy metal therapy, ·        encountering some seriously smelly feet, ·        defending the rights of pygmy goats, ·        and bodyguarding Noel from unwanted advances.   Ruby struggles to secure some sort of mental health, to understand what constitutes a real friendship, and—if such a thing exists—to find true love.
