Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.
Ruby Oliver, the neurotic, hyperverbal heroine of the The Boyfriend List, The Boy Book, and The Treasure Map of Boys, is back!I've been a huge fan of Ruby Oliver and her wacky, boy-crazy adventures. Roo is just so kooky and adorable that it's hard for me to NOT like her (However, I have no problems disliking her friends-they are terrible). I have mixed feelings for this cover; I do like it but I wish they had stayed with the theme that the other books have-they were unique and once I spotted them, I knew it was an E. Lockhart book. Anyways.... what's your pick for the week?
Ruby Oliver is in love. Or it would be love, if Noel, her real live boyfriend, would call her back. But Noel seems to have turned into a pod-robot lobotomy patient, and Ruby can’t figure out why.
Not only is her romantic life a shambles:
Her dad is eating nothing but Cheetos,
Her mother’s got a piglet head in the refrigerator,
Hutch has gone to Paris to play baguette air guitar,
Gideon shows up shirtless,
And the pygmy goat Robespierre is no help whatsoever.
Will Ruby ever control her panic attacks?
Will she ever understand boys?
Will she ever stop making lists?
(No to that last one.)
Roo has lost most of her friends. She’s lost her true love, more than once. She’s lost her grandmother, her job, her reputation, and possibly her mind. But she’s never lost her sense of humor. The Ruby Oliver books are the record of her survival. Release Date: December 28th, 2010
