Frankie is a bright, attractive and very frustrated sophomore at an upscale prep school. When she finally starts dating the most sought after boy in the school, she can't believe her good luck. She feels empowered when she is accepted into his exclusive clique, but she soon realizes that her boyfriend and the others are keeping something from her; they are members of a secret society called the Loyal Order of the Bassett Hounds.
Her feelings for her boyfriend soon take a backseat to her anger over being shut out by people who are supposed to be her friends. With her quick wits and a few hints from British literature (i.e. P.G. Wodehouse) Frankie infiltrates the Bassetts and shows them what real boarding school pranking is all about. This is an excellent book for inspiring girls and young women to be more than is expected of them. Lockhart effectively captures the feelings and thoughts of a fifteen-year-old girl. This would make a wonderful mother-daughter book discussion choice.
