When he could adore her for her youth and charm and protect her from the larger concerns of life.

She comes up with the most hilarious and envy-inducing pranks that not only make me want to start a secret society but also run around dressing the statues of Manchester with Bravissimo bras.

Some people shun Frankie while others think that she is legendary. Unable to enter the Old Boys world.

One of them may even run for Rrankie one day. The book is trying to give us the impression that she’s set so far apart from average high-school girls, but she’s really not. At the end of the book, Lockhart gives us this speech about how a girl like Frankie will change the world. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is a book which will prove to be surprisingly thought provoking for a range of age groups and worth reading to challenge your judgement about what a high fdankie girl can achieve.


Her old friendships will be threatened by the aforementioned relationship and all that brings about. This is the story of how she got that way. My favourite thing was that although she loved hanging with Matthew and his friends, Frankie was never scared of frnkie what she thought, she wouldn’t fade into the shadows of their exclusivity, she was her own person dammit and she wanted them to see her hstory the person she was, rather the person she was with.

It’s a book that exudes such power and confidence and femininity that you walk away from it feeling so proud to be a woman.

What does it mean that once Frankie’s crimes are revealed that it has little to do with her actions and more to do with her gender?

Everything is a power struggle to her. Informizely customer feedback surveys. This book has aged so well. Quotes from Disreputable Hist She is simply an emotionally immature little girl who is feeling excluded. Mar 12, Elizabeth rated it really liked it Shelves: I guess my qualm with this can be summed up to be that Frankie is that feminist who refuses to let a man even hold a door open for her and what I really wished for this novel to be was about a teenager who found a balance between securing her rights and being willfully feminine and adored, but unfortunately that didn’t happen.


The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart – review

While visiting the local temple near his home, which had a very powerful deity, I first became aware of the fact that my being a woman made me so drastically different from my younger brother. Just let him be in it and go do your own thing. It deserves to be read and the messages and themes it brings out are ones that every woman needs to understand.

It’s a feminist novel, they said. It’s true that he can’t tell you how to feel or act.

I think you’ve stressed that enough Frankie. A box for people who were not forces to be reckoned with. Was it that it this book was so h I have a confession.
