Description

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.

Critiques

"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)

Wonderful Book, Lame Narrator

The Boy Book itself is a lovely story full of twists and turns and hilariously angsty Ruby Oliver. E. Lockhart is my favorite author, and she has never let me down.
But the narrator is awful! She's old and expressionless and doesn't seem invested in reading this at all. I say read the book for sure, but skip listening to it. You'll just be disappointed.


If you enjoyed The Boy Book, you should also read The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks (written by E. Lockhart as well).

Free therapy

Even though it’s YA, I’m a 31 year old single girl and I got a lot of wisdom from these books. Plus they’re actually funny. A lot of people say books on here are funny and they almost never are. But this is actual smart humor that is funny. Someone tell the author to email me because I have so much to ask her.

Not Bad

Not a bad continuation of the first book, but I have to say I miss the last narrator. Kirsten Potter was good, I just don't like when they switch voices mid way through a series, it's like when a sitcom replaces an actor instead of writing out the character and the audience is not supposed to notice.
