The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
Best of the Web
All things E. Lockhart, all the time. She says it best when she says, "I write novels for teenagers and I love my job."
E. Lockhart, it turns out, isn't a real person at all. It's the nom de plume of one Emily Jenkins, writer of children's books. And, to be fair, adult books, too.
