Ruby Oliver is 15 and has a shrink. She knows it's unusual, but give her a break, she's had a rough 10 days. In the past 10 days 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)
- drank her first beer (someone handed it to her)
- got caught by her mom (ag!)
- had a panic attack (scary)
- 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.
"Spot-on dialogue and details make this a painfully recognizable and addictive read." (Publishers Weekly)
"Lockhart shines at depicting the all-encompassing microcosm of school social life." (Kirkus Reviews)

I listened to this with my 13 year old daughter on a car trip. She really enjoyed it and it gave us something to talk about.

I remember loving this book about 5-7 years ago. Wanted to listen to it again and maybe pick up the next couple books and it did not disappoint. Still Funny.
Definitely a YA book
Was The Boyfriend List worth the listening time?
I decided to listen to this book because I really enjoyed the author's book We Were Liars. Started out as a good read...could totally relate at that point. Then it definitely showed how it was a YA book and I started to check out halfway through. Interesting concept regarding the perception of girls who date in their teens.
A must read!
I've never read such an accurate/realistic account of teenage life & feelings than I have reading this book.
