We are thrilled to welcome E. Lockhart to readergirlz. Her novel The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is our January pick! Check out the our interview with E., book party ideas themed around both books, and our Reach Out project idea--as well as the awesome soundtrack E.'s chosen for the book--on readergirlz.com.
Here's a little about 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 is no longer the kind of girl to take "no" for an answer, especially when "no" means she's excluded from Matthew's all-male secret society.
Frankie Landau-Banks at age 16: Possibly a criminal mastermind. This is the story of how she got that way.
And the buzz...
