Frankie is a sophomore at Alabaster, a private boarding school known for its famous alumni. Last year, Frankie hung out with her older sister, on the outskirts of the popular crowd. This year, she manages to snag the attention of senior Matthew Livingston.
Matthew belongs to a secret society on campus called the Basset Hounds. The Basset Hounds have been responsible for several pranks and parties on campus, but Matthew doesn't share that information with Frankie, even when it appears she might actually be aware of the secret society.
So Frankie decides to take action. Instead of trying to infiltrate the group, she decides to become their mastermind and begins supplying the boys with ideas, keys, and locations for their pranks.
This is the story of how an intelligent, attractive, and independent teen becomes a criminal mastermind.
