Cringe, laugh, and cry with Ruby Oliver as she learns to deal with boys, best friends, and her panic attacks!
Join Ruby Oliver at the start of her junior year at Tate Prep as she confronts:
• the secret about Noel
• mysterious notes from Jackson
• the interpretation of boy-speak
• the horrors of the school trip
• new entries in The Boy Book
There are Fruit Roll-Ups.
There is upper-regioning.
There are so many boys to choose from!
And there are penguins.
Only Ruby can keep her readers on her side even as those around her wonder, What is she thinking?!
“RUBY’S OVERANALYTICAL, FAST-PACED and authentic narration will win over new devotees, while her loyal fans will no doubt hope for more.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred
“Teens will relate to the situations that Ruby finds herself in and learn from her skills about how to cope with the ‘minefield’ of crises that today’s teens face.”—School Library Journal
“Lockhart achieves the perfect balance of self-deprecating humor and self pity in Ruby, and thus imbues her with such realism that she seems to almost fly off the page.”—VOYA
