After finishing We Were Liars by E. Lockhart I knew I had to read more from her. I loved her writing and the story was great.
When I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued.
This is the story of Frankie Landau-Banks, a 15-year old girl who goes to a boarding school and becomes the girlfriend of idolized Matthew Livingstone. But she finds out that he is in an all-male secret society. She decides to infiltrate it and things are starting to happen.
The great thing about this book is that it is a feminist novel in disguise! This book is full of societal structures, great political statement and equality. You have to look past the surface to actually see this story for what it really is.
I enjoyed Lockhart’s writing; it’s beautifully written but also incredibly funny. The main character, Frankie could be annoying sometimes, but most of the time she was awesome. She rebels in her own way and the best part is that she is smart and strong. Although I thought that more stuff would happen, I was still happily surprised while reading this book.
Girls of all ages should read this book because it is really fantastic.
