Cassandra Davis got into the college of her dreams, but in order to attend, she needs a scholarship. Fortunately, she has a plan, and her idea is accepted: she will be the first girl ever to join a fraternity. And not just any fraternity, but Delta Tau Chi, a frat well known for its misogynistic ways. Cassie, an avowed feminist, knows exactly what to expect, and her plan is to bring the fraternity–maybe all fraternities–down from the inside with detailed information about its inner workings. However, not everything is precisely what she believed it’d be, and as Cassie develops friendships with her “frat brothers,” her views change. And maybe, just maybe, she’ll be changing the frat in her own way.
Frat Girl is not what I was expecting, and I mean that in the best way possible. I was expecting to be reading about an ultra-feminist girl lying her way into acceptance into a macho frat, and there is a certain amount of that. But despite the inherent untruthfulness of her pledge to DTC, Cassie still manages to retain a certain core level of honesty, and that is what makes her so ultimately likable, especially as she becomes increasingly uneasy about her scholarship project. As Cassie learns that frats are populated with real people, she begins to see the good in the individuals and make friends, and along the way she helps these misguided boys begin to understand women in a new way. And when the project ultimately blows up in her face–as we all knew it would eventually–the air is cleared in the best positive manner. Readers will be happy with how this book turns out.
