The Treasure Map of Boys
E. Lockhart
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.


Notes from the Dog
Gary Paulsen

“Sometimes having company is not all it’s cracked up to be.” Fifteen-year-old Finn is a loner, living with his dad and his amazing dog, Dylan. This summer he’s hoping for a job where he doesn’t have to talk to anyone except his pal Matthew. Then Johanna moves in next door. She’s 10 years older, cool, funny, and she treats Finn as an equal. Dylan loves her, too. Johanna’s dealing with breast cancer, and Matthew and Finn learn to care for her, emotionally and physically. When she hires Finn to create a garden, his gardening ideas backfire comically. But Johanna and the garden help Finn discover his talents for connecting with people.

The treasure Map of Boys sounds like fun! :D Notes from the Dog too! But I've read E. Lockhart and really like the style, so this one is definitely on my TBR list.

Ruby has a even Diablo 3 Goldthough for being an enduring figure, that is generally due to the fact of which to be a human being she actually is therefore secured. I must say i experienced the partnership amongst Ruby as well asGuild Wars 2 Gold the woman sibling Cora simply because miss transmission might be this kind of big source of destroyed interactions throughout broken households.
