While I enjoyed the prep/boarding school prank elements, I thought the story really didn't feel complete. Frankie's changes, while interesting, were not entirely developed. The conclusion wasn't satisfying and I didn't really know what the point of it was. The third person telling really threw me off, especially since the title almost implies a journal/diary format (which is misleading as well). I also loved some of the funny parts (particularly the grammar jokes) but found some of the teen issues to be superfluous. Maybe I just need to start reading more books for adults. :)
Surprisingly few for a contemporary teen novel.
Some annoying references.
Overall rating: ***
