    Here is how things stand at the beginning of newly licensed driver Ruby Oliver's junior year at Tate Prep - Kim: Not speaking. But far away in Tokyo. Cricket: Not speaking. Nora: Speaking--sort of. Chatted a couple times this summer when they bumped into each other outside of school--once shopping in the U District, and once in the Elliot Bay Bookstore. But she hadn't called Ruby, or anything.

    Ruby is back at Tate Prep, and it's her 37th week in the state of Noboyfriend.

Rumors are flying, and Ruby's already-sucky reputation is heading downhill.
