The Boyfriend List was a homework assignment for my mental health. Doctor Z, my shrink, told me to write down all the boyfriends, kind-of boyfriends, almost-boyfriends, rumoured boyfriends and wished-he-were boyfriends I've ever had. Plus, she recommended I take up knitting.

In the same ten days I: lost my boyfriend (boy #13); lost my best friend; lost all my other friends; learned gory details about my now-ex boyfriend's sexual adventures; did something shockingly advanced with boy #15; did something suspicious with boy #10; had an argument with boy #14; drank my first beer; got caught by my mom; lost a lacrosse game; failed a maths test; became a leper and became a famous slut. Enough to give anyone panic attacks, right? I was so overwhelmed by the horror of the whole debacle that I had to skip school for a day to read mystery novels, cry and eat spearmint jelly candies.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 2/10/2014

    " I loved this book! I wanted a palette cleanser. Something light and fluffy and easy to read. What I got was complex and imperfect and wonderfully executed with full, flawed, beautiful characters. I loved the skewering of cliches. I liked Roo's therapy and the lessons that she leaned. And I loved how messy and real it was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miko O. | 1/21/2014

    " It's not super-deep or mind-blowing, but it was strangely therapeutic to read, and it made me want to go and write my own list of all of my past crushes and boyfriends. Starting the sequel right now! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronica | 1/21/2014

    " I liked the way this book was written. Each chapter was a different boy on Rudy's list, but then she also went into what had made her start therapy. This was a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 1/12/2014

    " This book was so cute. I cant believe how many boys she had on her list, shes only 15. I think girls can relate to how silly boys are and how bestfriends can become strangers. I think its good to say how your feeling, and not bite your tounge. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lily | 1/10/2014

    " Something about this book made me love it. Maybe it was the realism and the fact that I could/wanted to relate to the main character in every way. Maybe it was because the book starred every type of boy that you find in other novels while at the same time being so unique and un-cliche. Maybe it was because every time I thought the book was going to follow the same, boring, predictable path as other young adult chick-lit, the author called me out on it and steered clear of it. Or maybe it was just because I haven't read a simple, feel-good book in a long time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 1/8/2014

    " quirky and quick, i like most everything that has footnotes though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mariz P. | 1/3/2014

    " Good book. Thumbs up! The story is kinda real. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber Keck | 1/1/2014

    " Yep, freakin' loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Rodgers | 12/3/2013

    " Hilarious! Very unique writing style "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 10/2/2013

    " The footnotes - Ag! - as Ruby would say. They got on my nerves to the point that I had to make myself finish reading, only because it was one of my daughter's book study options. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 8/24/2013

    " By far, best book I have ever read. Makes you laugh, makes you cry. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janssen | 3/27/2013

    " None of her other books can compare to Frankie for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maura | 12/13/2012

    " It was so good, witty, and the dialogue was spot-on. But the ending felt so unfinished, and I know there's a sequel, but there should be some closure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaimie | 12/7/2012

    " This was super cute and funny. I loved her ramblings in her head and why something was a certian way and why it could also be the complete opposite. I feel for her and cringe at the thought of how mean high school girls can be and how stupid boys are! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J | 12/5/2012

    " pretty good. a little more sexually advanced than i would want my fourteen-year-old to be, but good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 *tiffani krystle* :) | 6/9/2012

    " this is gonna be my IR book i think "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi MacNeill | 4/24/2012

    " This book is completely and totally ridiculous. But it made me laugh out loud. And I wanted to laugh. Mission complete. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/16/2012

    " I really liked this book. It reminded me of being a teenager. A little risky at times maybe and some language. Overall the summary of this book it is about boyfriends, girlfriends, and the horrors and joys of being in high school. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chevy | 10/26/2011

    " Ok, probably good for a teenage girl to read to know how it is and for mothers of teenage girls to remember what goes on/what is going on nowadays. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia Terrill | 8/31/2011

    " I know this is really silly, but I enjoyed this book! It was surprisingly feminist and a great easy beach read after reading many more serious books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 8/16/2011

    " Nothing particularly earth-shattering. A very simple, quick and quirky read. But, all in all, I did like reading it and I do occasionally dip into it now and then for a laugh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 joyce | 5/19/2011

    " a bit on the raunchy side "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/13/2011

    " i am enjoying it so far.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noelia | 5/9/2011

    " there were parts that annoyed me because it made her seem like a slut sometimes,,and her so called friend is a B^$%#. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 4/30/2011

    " This series made me happy in my heart. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 4/30/2011

    " This was a cute story that was relatable, with a strong and unique main character. The the I didn't like was that it was filled with a lot of fluff, even thought it went at a decent pace, and it was a kind of cliched plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 V.E. | 4/9/2011

    " This is a gushing review, I know. But I cannot help it. This book has got me in a bubble of indescribable happiness. I could relate so much to Ruby and I just loved loved LOVE the dialogue! and the footnotes. and everything. *blissful sigh* so much better than doing homework... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 3/28/2011

    " It was alright but nowhere near as good as some reviewers on this site said. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 3/23/2011

    " this book is so fun i loved it and all the foot notes.. SPECTACULAR!!! :) i read this in 1 day and then the next and then the next and now i have to buy the last "

About the Author
Author E. Lockhart

E. Lockhart is the author of a number of teen novels. She has had nine official boyfriends, if you count the boy who asked her to go with him at a 7th grade dance and then basically never talked to her again. She has never been on a sports team of any kind and got excused from gym class by going to ballet lessons. She has a tattoo, cuts her own hair, and has worn the same perfume since high school (Kiehl’s Chinese Flowers). In her office are two Betty & Veronica dolls, a photo of a particularly fat bull dog, an official business card from “Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective,” and the 1920s flapper dress she wore to the prom.
