Had a lot of fun reading this one. Lockhart is a talented storyteller both in plot devices and prose.

You can't help but like Frankie ... if you're a girl, there's a smidge of you (perhaps more) that will relate to her desire to no longer be a wallflower, to be respected by her parents, her peers .. to feel in control over something during your teenage years.

You have to give both of these women (Lockhart and her conniving protagonist) credit for some of the pranks they scheme up over the course of this book.

Fast-paced, engaging storyline, it was a quick read. The one area I would have liked to have seen strengthened is development of more of an emotional connection with the characters, but elsewise, Lockhart did her homework, perfectly capturing this WASP-y prep school and the dalliances of its student body.
