Shortly after Frankie starts tenth grade, she gets asked out by the hottie Matt Livingston (a senior). She discovers that Matt is part of a secret society at their private prep school. She then takes over the club by using e-mails. Her pranks get very elaborate. At the end of the book, the other students and administration find out that girls have just as much spunk as guys -- and their secret society isn't so secret anymore!
This book had a really great idea, but there were problems with the execution. If someone is looking for a funny crime novel about women's empowerment, than this would work.
