Ruby Oliver has had a rough ten days. She:

lost her boyfriend (#13 on the boyfriend list), 
lost her best friend,
lost all her other friends, 
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,  
failed a math test, 
hurt Meghan’s feelings,
became a social outcast, 
and had graffiti written about her in the girls’ bathroom.

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.

A delightful and frequently achingly honest tale–warts and all–about what happens when girls and boys meet.
