The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks - E. Lockhart The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is a fun story but honestly I don't have a lot to say about it. There wasn't much depth to the plot. I was disappointed because it didn't live up to E. Lockhart's Ruby Oliver series, which is one of my favorite YA series. Frankie is spunky but no where near as likable, funny, or relatable as Ruby Oliver. At some points Frankie could even be a little annoying with her over-the-top feminist thoughts, and her immaturity. Overall, I enjoyed the story and appreciated Lockhart's humor, but it wasn't one of my favorites.
