The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

Lockhart, E. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. New York: Hyperion, 2008.

This book took me a while to get into, and it contains enough objectionable elements that I do not recommend it to my students. The concept of a campus secret society was interesting, though.

It's not a horrid book, but it's not thrilling. I wouldn't waste my time with it, unless, like me, you end up reading cereal boxes and laundry detergent bottles when you have nothing else left to read.
