Ruby grew up with this close group of girlfriends, but when the story begins we learn that all of them have turned their backs on Ruby. This is the part where writing this review is a little tricky! I don't want to give away exactly what happened, it all gets explained in due time, so all I really want to say is...all of those girls were crazy! Ruby did nothing wrong! Kim was a freaking floozy! And Jackson was a dirtbag!!!
Okay, now I am going to move on to the things I can talk about freely...
Two of the tools that Lockhart uses in this book are lists and definitions. Ruby makes a few lists in the book, along with the obvious boyfriend list, and at first they felt a little random and strange (part of that may have been because it was the audio version and having lists read to you is always kind of strange) but then when I got to a part of the book where I noticed a lack of lists, I missed them!
In all I thought the writing was great. I really liked Ruby and I hope that she becomes better friends with Megan and Nora. Those girls were nice. As far as a love interest, I'm undecided. I can see the story going a bunch of different ways. I would say that I am interested in a lot of the characters enough to look up some spoilers online, but I just don't think I can sit through reading the entire series. Those 240 pages were way to close to the actual high school experience for me!
