Title: Treasure Map of Boys
Author: E. Lockhart
Summary: (taken from BN.com)
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.
My Thoughts: The Treasure Map of Boys is definitely my favorite book in this series. I felt that everything just came together in a perfect way. The characters developed so much more and Ruby’s annoyingness completely disappeared but she still kept her unique voice. I loved how she worked through all of her problems and I just adored how the boys were portrayed in this one.
As this is part of a series, I don’t feel that there is much more for me to say. If you enjoyed the first two books, DEFINITELY pick this one up. It’s so sweet.
That said, for some reason, I thought this was the last book in the series but it’s not! I’m not sure how I feel about that. For some reason, I just really loved where it left off and I’m afraid another book will mess up that perfection. But, I’m still pretty excited for it! Can’t wait to see what happens!
