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 heavy metal therapy, encountering some seriously smelly feet, defending the rights of pygmy goats, and body guarding 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 2/19/2014

    " I thoroughly enjoy Ruby Oliver. And looking at high school through her eyes makes me extremely glad we only have to live through it once in a lifetime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 2/6/2014

    " This is probably my favorite of the Ruby Oliver books because Ruby grows up a lot more. She still has her same problems, but she becomes much better at dealing with them in my opinion which makes her a more sympathetic and dynamic character. Can't wait for the last installment in this series, especially with the way Lockhart ends this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 faelinwolf | 1/30/2014

    " Yay for Ruby Oliver! I hope there's another book of her adventures soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn Estepp | 1/25/2014

    " man, e. lockhart is just like my new fighting technique: unstoppable. the third ruby oliver book did not disappoint and i love that she doesn't go in for neat, tidy endings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 1/22/2014

    " It was pretty good. It was a little slow, but the ending totally made me want to pick up the next book and start reading. There were moments where I cheered for Ruby and moments where I cringed, but over all I liked it because it was real. The book mirrored life. I think that's what E. Lockhart wanted and she very well succeeded. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melinda | 1/6/2014

    " These books are a really fast read. Like its taken me one evening to read the last two. So I find that a plus (even though I really didn't get much done those evenings). ;) Same complaints as last time, I don't like that the same slang is used over and over and OVER, mix it up a little. I also don't like that when she refreshes you from the last book she uses the exact same phrasing as before, I guess I feel like the author is a tad bit lazy. Like its too much work to look up some different words in a thesaurus or something. I had JUST finished reading the other book, so I don't need a refresher but I can understand why if its been a year in between reading, you would want a refresher, so that part is just annoying because I haven't been waiting in between. :) I also hate how Ruby can't explain herself at all. I get that she's just a teenager but if I liked a boy and he accused me of something, you can bet I would make the truth clear. And it feels like she's telling you this story like "I am so innocent, I've been trying so hard to be honest and upfront..." and then one of her friends comes along and says "You intentionally flirt with boys I like." and she's all..."You're right I do." I'm thinking, what the crap?! Why are we reading her thoughts if she's not honest in them? Its weird sometimes. Anyway, the only way I'm going to be completely mad at the ending is if everything gets wrapped up in a perfect bow, she's popular, she gets a great guy, her life is wonderful. Not that I don't want it to be happy, but I do want her to actually LEARN something about how to treat people and not be so obsessed with being popular and having fake friends. Okay, babbled for long enough. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma Burkhart | 1/3/2014

    " Highly entertaining. I probably shouldn't relate so well to a sixteen-year-old protagonist, but Ruby is just so damn funny! Any middle school girl (and apparently certain adults...ahem) will be absorbed by Ruby's inner and outer drama. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Russ | 11/27/2013

    " Yes! Must read book fourrrrr. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danica | 11/20/2013

    " I'M SO SAD. I WANT TO READ MOOREEEEEEEE!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawna | 10/19/2013

    " I listened to this on audio and thought the reader was ok, but not exceptional. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clarissa | 10/18/2013

    " Oh Ruby, sometimes, I just want to shake you. I love these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Mary, Why Ya Buggin | 10/17/2013

    " Nice ending to the series. I really got to enjoy her teenage "lingo." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lina | 9/27/2013

    " This book's main conflict was worse than the first 2 books combined, but it was still an excellent read. It was probably the best out of the series so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 mstan | 4/16/2013

    " Ruby gets better and better at being neurotic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 HomeschoolGirl | 1/1/2013

    " I loved this book. It made me happy!! haha "

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

    " This is the first in this series I've picked up, but I may go back and read the others, because I really liked Ruby. This is chick-lit with a really likable narrator, one who is maybe a little on the boy-crazy side but very aware of her foibles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki ~ no time to read | 7/1/2012

    " Best so far in the series! Can't wait for book 4!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keegan | 4/21/2012

    " I just love Ruby Oliver. She speaks the truth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stevie | 3/21/2012

    " I wish that E. Lockhart (and Carolyn Mackler) were writing books for teens when I was a teen. I'm glad they are doing it now. Ruby Oliver's growth throughout these books is fun to watch, and Lockhart's grasp on the teen girl psyche is pretty great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gwen the Librarian | 9/9/2011

    " I have never read any other E. Lockhart books about Ruby Oliver, but I adored this sassy, confused, totally realistic character. If only I had more time to go back and read the others, I would. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 7/9/2011

    " Ruby Oliver's third book saw her back in her complex, too-real world. After being disappointed with book #2, I was happy with the latest journey. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sierra | 6/15/2011

    " ugh ruby/noel forever "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 5/4/2011

    " Delightful. I actually laughed out loud! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 4/13/2011

    " I love these books! It was my third time reading this one. Very clever writing and often laugh-out-loud funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 4/12/2011

    " Not as good as the previous ones--there's a lot of conflict where Ruby is a little too right and the antagonist is a little too wrong for it to ring true. And Ruby's gotten much better at comebacks than anybody is in real life. I still love her, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ophelia | 4/11/2011

    " Nice ending to the series. I really got to enjoy her teenage "lingo." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 4/7/2011

    " Loved this just as much as the others in the series. I love these books so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 kate | 3/31/2011

    " Loved, loved, loved - and the tacky marshmallow Jesuses crucified on sugar cookies scene? Hysterical. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lina | 3/28/2011

    " This book's main conflict was worse than the first 2 books combined, but it was still an excellent read. It was probably the best out of the series so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 3/14/2011

    " Great series. This is the third and I can't wait for the fourth adventures and drama of Ruby Oliver. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 melissa | 3/6/2011

    " Favorite so far. When's the CW series debuting? Or ABC family? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 2/14/2011

    " Realistic dialogue. Clean read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/10/2011

    " These books are such fast reads! And surprisingly insightful about girls and relationships. "

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.
