Lockhart, E.

Real Live Boyfriends

(4) YA Ruby Oliver returns in a fourth novel about her exploits, delivered in a pastiche of rapid-fire narration, transcripts, poems, and emails. Having finally obtained a "real live boyfriend," Ruby has the usual trouble when said boyfriend withdraws and won't explain why. Lockhart isn't breaking any new ground in this Ruby story; you'll either love her or be irked by her ever-present self-doubt.
