Here is how things stand at the beginning of newly licensed driver Ruby Oliver’s junior year at Tate Prep:
Kim: Not speaking. But far away in Tokyo.
Cricket: Not speaking.
Nora: Speaking sort of. Chatted a couple times this summer when they bumped into each other outside of school once shopping in the U District, and once in the Elliot Bay Bookstore. But she hadn’t called Ruby, or anything.
Noel: Didn’t care what anyone thinks.
Meghan: Didn’t have any other friends.
Dr. Z: Speaking.
And Jackson. The big one. Not speaking.
But, by Winter Break, a new job, an unlikely but satisfying friend combo, additional entries to The Boy Book and many difficult decisions help Ruby to see that there is, indeed, life outside the Tate Universe.
From the Hardcover edition.
E. Lockhart offers a hilarious and realistic look at the trials and tribulations of being a teenager in her third Ruby Oliver novel. Find out what the real treasure is in Ruby’s life as she creates a treasure map of people she cares for and who return her feelings. Ruby is back at Tate Prep, and it s her thirty seventh week in the state of Noboyfriend. Her panic attacks are bad, her love life is even worse, and what s more: Noel is writing her notes, Jackson is giving her frogs, Gideon is helping her cook, and Finn is making her brownies. Rumors are flying, and Ruby s already sucky reputation is heading downhill. Not only that, she s also: running a bake sale, learning the secrets of heavy metal therapy, encountering some seriously smelly feet, defending the rights of pygmy goats, and bodyguarding Noel from unwanted advances. Ruby struggles to secure some sort of mental health, to understand what constitutes a real friendship, and if such a thing exists to find true love.
Ruby Oliver, the neurotic, hyperverbal hero*ine of the The Boyfriend List, The Boy Book, and The Treasure Map of Boys, is back! 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.
At the Manhattan School for Art and Music, where everyone is different and everyone is special, Gretchen Yee feels ordinary. She’s the kind of girl who sits alone at lunch, drawing pictures of Spider Man, so she won t have to talk to anyone; who has a crush on Titus but won t do anything about it; who has no one to hang out with when her best and only real friend Katya is busy. One day, Gretchen wishes that she could be a Fly on the Wall in the boys locker room just to learn more about guys. What are they really like? What do they really talk about? Are they really cretins most of the time?Fly on the Wall is the story of how that wish comes true. From the Hardcover edition.

Frankie Landau Banks at age 14:
Her father’s ‘bunny rabbit.’
A mildly geeky girl attending a highly competitive boarding school.
Frankie Landau Banks at age 15:
A knockout figure.
A sharp tongue.
A chip on her shoulder.
And a gorgeous new senior boyfriend: the supremely goofy, word obsessed Matthew Livingston.
Frankie Landau Banks.
No longer the kind of girl to take ‘no’ for an answer.
Especially when ‘no’ means she’s excluded from her boyfriend’s all male secret society.
Not when her ex boyfriend shows up in the strangest of places.
Not when she knows she’s smarter than any of them.
When she knows Matthew’s lying to her.
And when there are so many, many pranks to be done.
Frankie Landau Banks, at age 16:
Possibly a criminal mastermind.
This is the story of how she got that way.
From three critically acclaimed and bestselling authors comes one story equal parts charming, hilarious, and emotional of a road trip that proves that sometimes it doesn’t matter where you’re going, since getting there is half the fun. Three girls who couldn’t be more different have one goal in mind: to get the heck out of Dodge. Well, Niceville, Florida, actually. But it might as well be called Nowheresville. Vicks is the wild child fry cook whose boyfriend left for college and isn’t returning any of her calls; Mel, the good girl in expensive jeans who just wants everyone to like her; and Jesse, the trailer dwelling human morality meter who’s discovered a life altering secret Each has her own reason for climbing into Jesse’s mom’s beat up station wagon and hitting the highway for a weekend trip, whether she knows it or not. Armed only with Vicks’s ancient, battered copy of a guidebook called Fantastical Florida, a map Jesse picked up with her dwindling funds, and Mel’s mom’s credit card, they’re Miami bound. Hearts will be broken, friendships will be tested, and a ridiculously hot stranger could change the course of everything. And if they don’t kill each other first, Vicks, Mel and Jesse will not only have a road trip to remember, they’ll have friends for life.
