Secret Society? Frankie Wants to Join

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

Frankie starts her sophomore year at the fictional private school, Alabaster Academy. Over the summer she got curves in all the right places, and  popular senior boy Matthew notices her when she falls off her bike. Later, she realizes he likes her as an adorable damsel-in-distress, not in- control and expressing her opinions. This spurs her on to delicious hijinks of infiltrating a secret society on campus and running the show, in her very own creative way.

Will she gain the acceptance she's longing for? Or just enjoy the rebellion? This book has real depth and social commentary.
