The Treasure Map of Boys by E. Lockhart
Synopsis: Ruby is back at Tate Prep, and it’s her thirty-seventh week in the state of Noboyfriend. Her panic attacks are bad, her love life is even worse, and what’s more: Noel is writing her notes, Jackson is giving her frogs, Gideon is helping her cook, and Finn is making her brownies. Rumors are flying, and Ruby’s already-sucky reputation is heading downhill. Not only that, she’s also: running a bake sale, learning the secrets of heavymetal therapy, encountering some seriously smelly feet, defending the rights of pygmy goats, and bodyguarding Noel from unwanted advances.
Review: I honestly thought this book was better than the previous two in the series. One thing I love about this series are the covers! :) Froggies, penguins, and snowmans. How cute is that?
I love how in every novel Ruby matures more, even though she makes mistakes. Let's face it; most of her friends are jerks, and her whole school keeps spreading rumors about her. Where does that leave Ruby? In therapy sessions with Dr. Z. After reading this book, I hate Jackson and Kim more than ever. Noel acts pretty stupid also, but he's still a great friend to Ruby. The author certainly captures the essence of drama oh so perfectly...
If you love The Boyfriend List and The Boy Book, you will love this just as much!
