In this fourth hilarious episode of Ruby Oliver's high school career, the neurotic, hyperverbal heroine of The Boyfriend List and its companions The Boy Book and The Treasure Map of Boys interviews her friends for a documentary on love and popularity. While doing so, she turns up some uncomfortable truths—and searches for a way to get back what she had with Noel.
Roo has lost most of her friends. She's lost her true love more than once. She's lost her grandmother, her job, her reputation, and possibly her mind. But she's never lost her sense of humor. The Ruby Oliver books are the record of her survival.
