I completely disagree with the blurb on the back, saying that at 16 Frankie is possibly a criminal mastermind. She never gets to 16 in the book and her actions aren't criminal, they are more politically based civic disobedience.
Reading this book reminded me of the first time i listened to "just a girl" by No Doubt. Very girl power, very strong. I just wish it had ended on a bit of a happier note. I've added it to my possible present list for my 16 yr old sister as i am always on the lookout for good examples for her. I say it's a 5 and it counts for the YA challenge.
