by E. Lockhart
E. Lockhart’s spot-on dialogue and descriptions of painfully but hilariously relatable situations make this young adult novel an addictive read.
Fifteen-year-old Ruby has had a rough ten days. During that time 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)
* had a panic attack
* 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)
* had graffiti written about her in the girls' bathroom (who knows what was in the boys'!?!)
But don't worry—Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more lists.
I don't know what's up here. This was recommended by a good friend. I bought it a year ago. I read a sample before I bought it and loved the sample. Yet here it sits. Eek! I do remember that I was going through a huge contemporary kick before I got this so maybe I was burnt out.
I don't know the exact why I didn't read it. What I want to know is, should I read it?
