In the fabulous follow up to The Boyfriend List, Ruby Oliver finds herself back at Tate Prep for the start of junior year. Join Ruby as she confronts: the secret about Noel; the interpretation of boy-speak; the horrors of the school trip; new entries in The Boy Book; and the exploitation of boobs everywhere.

Here are how things stand at the beginning of newly-licensed driver Ruby Oliver's junior year at Tate Prep: Kim - not speaking, but far away in Tokyo; Cricket - not speaking; Nora - speaking, sort of. Chatted a couple times this summer when they bumped into each other outside of school. But she hadn't called Ruby, or anything; Noel - didn't care what anyone thinks; Meghan - didn't have any other friends; Dr. Z - speaking; and Jackson. The big one. Not speaking.

By Winter Break, a new job, an unlikely but satisfying friend combo, additional entries to The Boy Book and many difficult decisions help Ruby to see that there is, indeed, life outside the Tate Universe.
