I've had the worst cold, and I needed something fun and light to read. I found that in "The Boyfriend List" which I read in one sitting.
Ruby's story is very refreshing because it's so realistic. As an only child that tended to over analyze and then become very sensitive to the people around me, I felt that I had similar experiences in high school that Ruby experienced.
Overall, I'm so impressed with E. Lockhart's writing style. It's funny, witty, and poignant. I work with high school students and understand why high school feels like their whole world because it is. It's hard to explain that soon they will see that the world is so much bigger than their small high school.
