Having been one of the few who hasn't yet read We Were Liars, I had no idea what to expect from this book by E. Lockhart. I loved it! One of the most fantastic protagonists I've ever read. The prose is easy to follow and really builds the character of Frankie, from young and naive 'bunny rabbit' to gritty, superbly feminist and intelligent student. There are so many hilarious moments from Frankie's sharp quips and conniving mastermind work, and I really felt all the emotions she reeled through throughout her experience of feeling lesser than her boyfriend. The recurring idea of the panopticon concept was such a great inclusion (you'll see what I'm talking about once you've read it!), and added such an intelligent depth to the novel. This is a great book to escape to, purely because Frankie does things that most people (well, at least I) would never dream of, so it's thrilling to live in her shoes for 300-odd-pages.
