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.
Ruby Oliver is in love. Or it would be love, if Noel, her real live boyfriend, would call her back. But Noel seems to have turned into a pod-robot lobotomy patient, and Ruby can't figure out why. Not only is her romantic life a shambles: her dad is eating nothing but Cheetos; her mother's got a piglet head in the refrigerator; Hutch has gone to Paris to play baguette air guitar; Gideon shows up shirtless; and the pygmy goat Robespierre is no help whatsoever.
Will Ruby ever control her panic attacks? Will she ever understand boys? Will she ever stop making lists? (No to that last one.) Roo has lost most of her friends. She's lost her true love, more than once. She's lost her grandmother, her job, her reputation, and possibly her mind. But she's never lost her sense of humor. The Ruby Oliver books are the record of her survival, and will make readers cringe, weep, and laugh out loud!
