A really good story but it could be better written

Till she falls in love with Matthew Livingston. And he has a secret. The same secret as Frankies father and a lot other man who went to her school. Matthew is a leader of a secret society called the Basset Hounds. They are all troublemakers but loyal to the society till they die. Frankie somehow wants to be part of the club not only to be more part of her boyfriends life but also because she can't accept that there only man can be leaders. So she creats an anonyme e-Mail-account to be part of the group. But Frankie doesn't realize how dangerous her do something can be. I read the book because a friend of mine told me it was awesome. And I also read "We were liars" from the same author which drive me crazy. So i think I had a little bit a to high expectation of the book because I was a little bit disappointed. The story as it was really brilliant and I liked the idea how a good girl become a bad girl without knowing it but i think it could have been a little more thrilling and a plot twist would have been very good. But to my opinion no other book by E. Lockhard can keep up with "We were liars"!

The contents are exactly as stated on the backcover, but different from what I expected

Dumb of me, I know. The story deals with sophomore Frankie Landau-Banks, who attends a posh preparatory boarding school, and her evolution from being a mostly overlooked, harmless geek living in her sister's shadow to the successful undercover leader of the all-male secret society "The Bassets", trying to be acknowledged for her exceptional brains instead of for her cute figure and other characteristics that are obligatory for being Mathew Livingston's girlfriend. This was clear to me, somehow before reading the book, yes. But - how can I say it - the story turned out to read less than a story and more like a psychological analysis of the involved characters as props for real-life people instead: It's like these moral tales written for young people a hundred years ago (but rolled-up the other way). Pretty-wrapped into a story are hidden theories on how girls behave when trying to keep a boyfriend, who likes to brag and keeps going to boring drinking-parties (You can almost see the check-boxes: Dear reader, in which category do you sort yourself?), on why guys become members in all-male-secret-societies and do useless stuff there anyway, on why girls are always expected to be non-competitive and so on. These musings are not uninteresting, but they are offered under the pretense to tell a story, they have an academic, almost clinical, by-taste, which keeps the reader from getting close to Frankie and they are simply too many. And - even if it is always made clear, that small-time guerrilla Frankie does not fit any category - often enough I glimpsed a raised finger indicating, what a modern, feminist girl is supposed to think, to do, to feel concerning her place in this world. Maybe it is an age thing. But I did not like it. In addition the so-called story ends with Frankie being unsatisfied with herself and being misunderstood by everybody. Ahh, the burden of a genius. Or what?
