  • lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list)
  • lost her best friend (Kim)
  • lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket)
  • did something suspicious with a boy (#10)
  • did something advanced with a boy (#15)
  • had an argument with a boy (#14)
  • drank her first beer (someone handed it to her)
  • got caught by her mom (ag!)
  • had a panic attack (scary)
  • lost a lacrosse game (she's the goalie)
  • failed a math test (she'll make it up)
  • hurt Meghan's feelings (even though they aren't really friends)
  • became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch)
  • had graffiti written about her in the girls' bathroom (who knows what was in the boys'!?!)

But don't worry, Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more lists.

    "A must read!"

    I've never read such an accurate/realistic account of teenage life & feelings than I have reading this book.

    "Fun Listen"

    I listened to this with my 13 year old daughter on a car trip. She really enjoyed it and it gave us something to talk about.
