Frankie is calculating–she never makes a move until she considers all the consequences and implications, not just the immediate ones, but into the future. Will acting strong or seeming helpless get Matthew to like her? How can she use her attendance at the exclusive Alabaster Prep School to ensure that doors will open for her in the future? When Frankie learns about the all-male secret society The Loyal Order of the Bassett Hounds, how will she use this information? She knows that her boyfriend chooses the "dogs" over her, but is that a reason to infiltrate the group? What about all the advantages the guys get in the future from their bonding experiences? What about having power and making a political statement? Frankie's choices will keep you guessing--what will she make the Hounds do next?
