From E. Lockhart, author of the highly acclaimed, "New York Times" bestseller "We Were Liars, "which John Green called "utterly unforgettable," comes "The Treasure Map of Boys," the third book in the uproarious and heartwarming Ruby Oliver novels.
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 heavymetal therapy, encountering some seriously smelly feet, defending the rights of pygmy goats, and bodyguarding 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.
