This month’s FYA Book Club selection is The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart. Check out the discussion questions below! (Slight spoilers ahead.)

P.S. If you’ve already read the book, feel free to add any other discussion questions of your own in the comments!


Frankie is a master pranker. What’s the best prank you ever pulled?


1. Do you think Frankie is a feminist icon? If so, what makes her one? If not, why not?

2. Shag/Marry/Kill: Matthew, Alpha, Frankie

3. “I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?” What was your favorite “neglected positive” from Frankie’s repertoire?

4. One of the big struggles in this book is between Empowered Frankie and Finally Popular Frankie. Did her internal struggles (wanting to be respected vs wanting to be liked) ring true to you? Were you like
Frankie when you were younger? Are you like Frankie now?
