From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
At the very beginning of the book, we get a missive, and the missive is from one Frankie Landau-Banks.
Frankie is writing to the headmaster of Alabaster in order to confess to doing all sorts of intriguingly named things, including: the Library Lady, the Doggies in the Window, and the Canned Beet Rebellion. Um, what?
She also says that what she did was social criticism, so make of that what you may.
Between freshman and sophomore years of high school, Frankie Landau-Banks undergoes a typical high school movie transformation: she goes from the gawky girl to the hot one.
At school the year before, she was just Zada's little sister. But Zada's going to college now though, at UC Berkeley.
By the end of the summer, Frankie's all kinds of developed (if you know what we mean) but she's still a young girl on the inside.
