E. Lockhart here. Did you know the Ruby Oliver Books all have supercute new covers? They do. And those supercute covers match the new (fourth) Ruby book which is just out in hardcover: Real Live Boyfriends.
By the way, last year when Treasure Map of Boys came out, "Ruby" was "here" at Random Buzzers last year, doing an ADVICE COLUMN.
This was a completely insane project for a fictional character such as herself to do, given that her life is a complete mess. As you can read in The Boyfriend List (the first in the series), Roo has lost not only her boyfriend, but all her friends -- and she's such a social leper she has to see a therapist to improve her mental health. Nevertheless, you guys ASKED HER QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL LIVES! And she answered!
Read the advice columns here:
Real Live Boyfriends is the fourth in the series. Roo has boyfriends! More than one! After the long period of noboyfriend she suffered through in The Treasure Map of Boys (book 3), you'd think she'd be happy. But more than one boyfriend is never that happy-making -- and Ruby has to figure out why Noel is suddenly a pod-robot and whether Gideon is worth the risk. Naturally, Ruby still sees Doctor Z, still has crazy parents, and still footnotes her every thought.
