"Fifteen boys, 43 lists, 120 footnotes, and too many panic attacks to count, all in four novels about Ruby Oliver. From the best-selling author of We Were Liars.From E. Lockhart, the author of the highly acclaimed New York Times bestseller We Were Liars, which John Green called 'utterly unforgettable', comes the uproarious and heartwarming Ruby Oliver novels - The Boyfriend List, The Boy Book, The Treasure Map of Boys, and Real Live Boyfriends...Follow Ruby Oliver through four hilarious instalments of her high school life. There are boy troubles, friend troubles, panic attacks, and lists. There are mysterious notes, fruit roll-ups, upper-regioning, and more lists. There are mean-spirited rumors, smelly feet, frogs, and brownies. There are Cheetos, a piglet head, Paris, and baguette air guitar. Ruby Oliver manages it all with an enormous dose of humor and understated grace. She survives to tell the tale that will make readers cringe, weep, and laugh out loud!..Ruby Oliver is 15 and has a shrink. She knows it's unusual, but give her a break - she's had a rough 10 days. In the past 10 days she: lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list); lost her best friend (Kim); lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket); did something suspicious with a boy (#10); did something advanced with a boy (#15); had an argument with a boy (#14); drank her first beer (someone handed it to her); got caught by her mom (again!); had a panic attack (scary); lost a lacrosse game (she's the goalie); failed a math test (she'll make it up); hurt Meghan's feelings (even though they aren't really friends); became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch); and had graffiti written about her in the girls' bathroom...But don't worry - Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more lists..." - Back cover.
