Painstakingly real, so much that it will take your breath away. A must-read for every teen girl who will grow to embrace Roo as one of their best friends. Roo is extremely observant, but at the same time you can't help wanting to shake her by her shoulders and tell her some things you know about her classmates that she can't see for herself.

This book has a fun style to it as you are reading it from the perspective of the main character thru her visits to her shrink. She shares details about the boys she has kissed or had feelings for, how it affected her friendships and family. Brings you back to a time when it all seems so important what others think of you.

This book is very funny. It is about a girl who explains her problems and has to do a project listing all her boyfriends. Thumbs up.

The additional title of THE BOYFRIEND LIST is (15 guys, 11 shrink appointments, 4 ceramic frogs and me, Ruby Oliver). It's very enlightening, entertaining, and oh-so-paramount to the book. This is the life and times of nearly sixteen-year old Ruby Oliver, former girlfriend of Jackson, former best friend of Kim, former semi-popular Sophomore high-school girl. Now just a girl with panic attacks, a Xerox-copied "Boyfriend List" circulating through school, and a shrink named Doctor Z.

Ruby's life used to be pretty normal, until her boyfriend broke up with her to date her best friend. Then the panic attacks started--shortness of breath, a tightening sensation in the chest, dizziness and nausea--that had her parents shipping her off to a psychiatrist to work out her "issues." Those issues would mainly be, in chronological order:

1) Adam
2) Finn
3) Hutch
4) Gideon
5) Ben
6) Tommy
7) Chase
8) Sky
9) Michael
10) Angelo
11) Shiv
12) Billy
13) Jackson
14) Noel
15) Cabbie

It might sound, in retrospect, like a lot of guys in a short period of time. But Ruby's made a list of every boy who has ever meant something to her, and these are the fifteen guys that make up the list. In THE BOYFRIEND LIST, we learn about all the guys in Ruby's life, from Adam to Cabbie and everyone in between--and the result is a laugh-out-loud coming-of-age story that is well worth reading.

I can't wait for the release of THE BOY BOOK to be released in September 2006. Since "The Boy Book" was actually the creation of Ruby Oliver and her friends in THE BOYFRIEND LIST, it should be quite an adventure!
