Accused of offensive, sexist behavior, they have one year to clean up their act. For the DTC brothers, the F-word is feminist—the type of person who writes articles in the school paper about why they should lose their home.With one shot at a scholars...

    This was such an easy and enjoyable read. With a strong (sometimes borderline preachy, but whatever) feminist message and the wildness of frat boys, this book was an easy hit for me.I breezed through this whenever I had time to read it. Also, this was a refreshingly accurate look at the college campus life.Full review to come.

    A mixture between a slow and quick read.While I did love the idea behind it, it became a bit frustrating when the feeling went from feminine empowerment, to cheesy romance. For me, the story made up for it with its comedic moments. However, I definitely feel that there was a better way to share the story, without having pieces being completely stereotypical. Instead, it needed to show more variety in who people are.Overall, this is not a book for...

    *I won a copy of this via Goodreads Giveaways*The sociologist in me loved this book. It features Cassie Davis, a high school student from Indiana, who comes up with an interesting way to earn the first year of a scholarship to a prestigious college. Conduct a social experiment in order to conduct research on culture inside a frat house, social norms within Greek organizations, and potentially disband the frat. What she doesn't anticipate is the f...

    Unrated for now. Not really sure what to think - on the one hand, really easy to read and I know virtually nothing about fraternities so it was all quite novel to me, and there were some good ideas in it. But there were also long diatribes that could be cut and pasted from a "liberal feminism 101" textbook that were awkward and clunky, and some of it was quite unpleasant to read (which I suppose was rather the point).http://atlasrisingbooks.blogs...

    This book is addictive! I flew through it. Equal parts hilarious, heart-warming, swoony, and feminist. Roache has given us an intelligent and nuanced narrative that will entertain as well as educate.

    Frat Girl tells the story of college freshman Cassie Davis as she joins a frat to pursue a feminist project for a full ride scholarship at her dream school. It is an entertaining contemporary, refreshing in that it both centers around a college student, but also features a serious, lengthy conversation on the many nuances of what it means to be a feminist. The book's weakness lies in its underdeveloped or unlikable characters. Many of the charact...

    I loved the idea behind the book and if all you're looking for it a fun read, then give it a go! If you're looking for a solid piece of writing, then I suggest looking elsewhere. While the content was impressive, at times the writing fell a bit flat and on occasion the magic of the story would be broken and the author could be seen controlling the strings of the characters. I remember a specific instance where the main character had a thought tha...

    I have a lot of mixed feelings about Frat Girl. On one hand, Roache's writing is refreshingly intelligent and nuanced, tackling divisive feminist and societal issues from multiple perspectives. The entire novel is clearly firmly rooted in a strong academic tradition of women's and gender studies. However, I'm bothered by the (unintentional) normalization of hazing practices, which certainly aren't a gendered issue. Also, I'm bothered by the insin...

    The concept of this book intrigued me since I am now in college and live directly across from the Greek suites (a different concept of the suites are shown in this novel) on my campus. Plus, the novel is supposed to show feminism in a modern sense.I didn’t particularly enjoy this book though. The main character, Cassie, fails to see any fraternity boy as a genuine human being, never gives her parents a chance, and doesn’t truly know what repr...

    Cassie Davis never would’ve been able to afford college if she hadn’t been chosen for the prestigious Stevenson scholarship, which provides funding for groundbreaking research. Cassie’s project is on the problematic nature of fraternities and she plans to research it by going undercover as the first female pledge in Delta Tau Chi’s history. DTC is the most troublesome of all campus frats, having been in the news for their offensive and se...

    In Roache's debut novel, Cassandra Davis is given an opportunity of a lifetime when she wins funding from a scholarship to go to a university of her dreams. A university that is light years away from a town that stifles creativity and demonizes a progressive outlook on womanhood. The only problem is she must come up with a project to win this continued funding and what better way to do that than to infiltrate the DTC, a fraternity that has been p...

    I won an Advanced Copy of this book from a Goodreads giveaway. Frat Girl tells the story of incoming college freshman Cassie Davis, as she embarks on a quest to join one of the most notorious frats in the country - all to ensure she receives a full scholarship to the college of her dreams. Also: she's a feminist and the frat she's attempting to get into has a nasty history of sexism and misogyny. It's a compelling synopsis. As a debut novel, I w...

    I received this book via a goodreads giveaway.To be honest, I wasn’t sure how this book could be good and have a ‘happy’ ending; but the author did it; made the book compelling enough to keep reading and turned bad around. Casandra Davis wants to attend the exclusive Warren College; in order to fulfill her dream she needs a full scholarship. When the scholarship division chooses Cassie as one of two finalists, she must come up with a projec...

    This book is a good tool to use as a conversation starter. Is it the best? No. The characters could definitely be better written to come off as less one-dimensional and more thought out. Can it be a good story regardless? Yes. I think it an be with some tweaking to characters and dialogue. Still, maybe it's worth a try if you happen to be interested.*won as a GoodReads Giveaway*

    Really intriguing to see this was written by a current college student, and I wonder how much research she did on frats. Everything rings true to me for the most part, but I was never Greek. Enjoyed the story but not sure if high school teen readers would be interested unless they are specifically looking for college settings.

    I received an ARC of this book from the 2017 YALSA Symposium.I really enjoyed reading this book. It got a little heavy sometimes with discussions of feminism, politics, etc. , but I breezed through the rest of it.
  • Beth
    FRAT GIRL is an interesting look at feminism and gender studies at the collegiate level, particularly relating to Greek Life. An interesting conversation starter!
  • Librariann
    This was all of the discussions I had in college about the Greek system, and then some. I have a fond longing for the old TKE house.
