The Boyfriend List: 15 Guys, 11 Shrink Appointments, 4 Ceramic Frogs and Me, Ruby Oliver - E. Lockhart
Love triangles abound. Triangles. Squares. There were probably a couple circles thrown in there too for good measure.
Everyone seems to be dating everyone in this book.

Then Ruby is lying about how she feels about everything. She cannot tell anyone the truth about how she feels and I can see how that would lead to panic attacks.
It's like...


Just out with it already, Ruby.
And she's sucking up to all the wrong people. She's so stuck on Jackson (like every other girl in the Tate Universe) that she can't see the actual nice guys who are all around her. Like Noel or Shiv or even Hutch. Any one of them would be nicer than Jackson. I just don't see the appeal of this guy other than he's the school "hottie". Whatever.

And then what Kim did to her was unacceptable. Ruby dated Jackson first for six months. Kim (her supposed best friend) knows that she's still in love with him, but then dates him anyway claiming "It's fate" and "We didn't mean for it to happen".



Then she turns everyone against Ruby when she kisses Jackson. So yeah, he was dating Kim at the time, but Kim is the one who pushed Jackson to take Ruby (his ex who is still in love with him) to the dance. Honestly, why shove him in her face? To hurt her even more? To make everyone pity her?

And then claim that all along she tried to take Finn as well, when Kim was the one who pushed her to talk to him when she was trying to keep her distance?

Dear Kim,

Sincerely,
Everyone.

And Jackson just let it happen.

Oh, and Ruby's parents. No wonder she's having panic attacks. These two people do not belong together even a little bit. They argue about everything. They are fundamentally different. Normally, opposites attract and I, you know, ship it. Well, not these two. Their opposites don't complement each other at all.

There were many funny lines in this book, however, and I enjoyed it.
