The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks, by E. Lockhart

Frankie could just play the girlfriend. After all, her boyfriend’s hot, and a senior. But when he joins a secret all-male society at their fancy boarding school, she refuses to take “no girls allowed” for an answer. And thus an all-out prank war ensues, instigated by budding criminal mastermind Frankie, who refuses to be mere arm candy even for big man on campus Matthew Livingston. In this book, the girl ditches the dude and demands to be noticed for her smarts and her heart.
