The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
Is anyone else a Gilmore Girls fan? Frankie reminded me of Rory and the boys at her school reminded me of the rich boys at Yale with Rory. The banter was so self-assured, so dripping with privilege and so intelligent, in both cases.
What E. Lockhart did with language in general was absolutely wonderful. Look out for the positives Frankie makes out of words, fantastic.
This book really is a gem, one of a kind. And (again) one of those books I never would have read if it wasn't for the blogging community. Thank you!!!

I suddenly have the suspicion I'd really enjoy Gilmore Girls :P So glad you enjoyed the book!
Nymeth - watch Buffy first, then we can talk about other shows1 :-)
It's been a while since I read this book, but I recall liking Frankie's thoughts about words, like her thing about being disgruntled vs. gruntled.
Loved the play with language and words in this one, too! Made the book for me.
Charley - Gruntled was my favorite too!
Trish - very creative isn't it? Made the book so different from everything else!
