I read this quickly a few weeks ago! I really enjoyed it but I needed a break before finishing the last two. ( )

Really about girls and how they relate to boys, each other and that high school growing up phase. Engaging characters and dialogue. ( )

Re-read.

Again, Lockhart's dead on. I identify with Ruby, I love the premise, and the execution leaves me with no complaints. The machinations of high school girls ring true. It would have been easy for this story to get overblown or maudlin, but in Lockhart's hand it remains funny but wincingly real. ( )

I really liked this book........ BUT BOY, does it leave you hanging! I'm glad I waited so long to read it, because now I only have to wait until July for Book 3!! (Book 3: [b:The Treasure Map of Boys: Noel, Jackson, Finn, Hutch--and me, Ruby Oliver|5819551|The Treasure Map of Boys Noel, Jackson, Finn, Hutch--and me, Ruby Oliver (Ruby Oliver, Book 3)|E. Lockhart|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41vn-7LjQ+L._SL75_.jpg|5991564]! I LOVE THE COVER!!)

At the end, I was like, "But... but..... but..... NOOOOEEEELLLLLL!!!!" ;) *sigh*

So that was so NOT a review... Here goes the review:

The book was a great followup to Book 1, [b:The Boyfriend List: 15 guys, 11 shrink appointments, 4 ceramic frogs, and me, Ruby Oliver|301022|The Boyfriend List 15 guys, 11 shrink appointments, 4 ceramic frogs, and me, Ruby Oliver (Readers Circle)|E. Lockhart|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1173534943s/301022.jpg|292089]. I really like how Ruby progressed as a character in the book. I kept freaking at her to get over Jackson already, but when I think back on my life.... well, I think Ruby's a pretty true-to-life character. I'm still just really really thankful that I never had friends like her original little group. When the sh*t hits the fan, you find out who your real friends are.... ( )
