Five Books with Pranks

Looking for Alaska by John Green — Getting back at the school snobs, coming out of your shell, developing friendships, honoring the dead — who knew how useful (or meaningful) pranks could be?

The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty — The pranks start out in fun, and then as a way to put a jerk in his place, but if Emily, Lydia, and Cassie aren’t careful, they’ll end up in more trouble (personal and public) than they expected.

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart — Frankie knows she’s just as bold and clever as the school’s all-boys band of pranksters, and what better way to prove it than to wrap them up in her own string of pranks?

A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker — What starts as a prank war between two “newly-weds” leads Fiona to discover surprising truths about herself, her friends, and her supposed enemies.

Goth Girl Rising by Barry Lyga — Kyra is determined to get back at Fanboy for abandoning her, and if she has her way, these pranks are only the beginning. That is, if she can get herself to completely believe he deserves it.

What are your favorite book-ish pranks?

I don't know if this absolutely counts as a prank, but the float that the main character and his friends build in Rats Saw God by Rob Thomas is just hysterical. Ah Dadaism...

My #1 favorite prank-ish book from what you listed is The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. My favorite pranks? Hmm...I would have to say it would be the prank where Frankie orders the Basset Hounds to put up bras on the portraits of the boarding school's previous headmasters.
