The Treasure Map of Boys by E. Lockhart

The third book in the amazing Ruby Oliver series.

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.

In this companion novel to The Boyfriend List and The Boy Book, Ruby struggles to secure some sort of mental health, to understand what constitutes a real friendship, and to find true love—if such a thing exists.

I loved this book! E. Lockhart is at it again, thrilling readers with the life of Ruby Oliver. Ruby's thought process is wonderful. You can tell she is stuck between guys and knowing she shouldn't date because of the events that have occurred previously in her life.
The way Ruby acts. The twists and turns in her life. The boys.
This is an awesome series and an awesome book. Ms. Lockhart does a wonderful job writing from the point of view of a teen!

* Other books in this series are The Boyfriend List and The Boy Book.
