Breezy and genuine, with a tender understanding of who really walks the halls in America s high schools. The Boyfriend List made me laugh and, yeah, I was kind of attracted to Kim. Ned Vizzini, author of "It s Kind of a Funny Story"
"The Boyfriend List" is a wonderful comic exploration of the maddening (but hilarious) world of mothers and fathers, the gut-wrenching politics (and excitement) of multiple crushes, and the complications (and kinship) of friendship. Ruby Oliver is a winning girl (even if she doesn t realize it) we d all befriend in a heartbeat (as long as she doesn t have her eyes on our guy). Jill A. Davis, author of "Girls Poker Night"
Ruby Oliver s list of boyfriends is a wonderful and tragic document of our times. I felt kind of bad for some of the guys on the list, but at the same time, while I read, I kept wishing I was on it. J. Minter, author of the Insiders series
