The fourth book in this series is most definitely my favorite but it s this one that really cemented Ruby Oliver into my fictional soul sister for life hall of fame forever and ever In book two Ruby was struggling to be a better friend to be considerate and thoughtful while at the same time stand up for herself and respect her own feelings But how far should she go in the name of friendship How much should she sacrifice It s in the name of friendship How much should she sacrifice It s to see that line with frenemies like Kim and bad news boys like Jackson but what about friends she genuinely cares ABOUT AND WANTS TO KEEP HOW and wants to eep How of herself should she repress in order to do so And why was it that I had to lie to my friend in order to do the right thing by her In order to be a good person I had to pretend I didn t feel the way I felt Was that what good people did Denied their feelings and acted fake I think that this is Ruby s book about taking a stand It s about recognizing her real friends and saying goodbye to bad ones And for the friends who lie somewhere in between it s about vocalizing all of her thoughts and grievances and feelings and giving them a chance to respond Maybe it will destroy the friendship or maybe it will forge even stronger bonds but either way it s better than repressing everything And I absolutely love that Ruby doesn t ever get everything right Two of my favorite aspects of this series as a whole are Ruby s parents Ruby s mom is a serial health craze follower performance artist poor listener and a loud mouth Ruby s dad is a specialty gardener umbaya lover emotional analyzer and is generally irresponsible They both make a ton of mistakes don t really get Ruby and argue with each other at almost every turn AND YET And yet they are both caring parents who have a healthy marriage I love this passage from Ruby In life there s no happily ever after into the sunset There s a marriage complete with arguments bad hair lost hair mentally unstable children weird diets dogs that fur up the couch not enough money Like my parents That s their life I just described but then there they were talking on the phone about my dad massaging my mom s groin area after yoga cuddling on the couch holding hands and wearing stupid Great Dane paraphernaliaThat s all we can really hope for In fact I think it s as close to happily ever after as things get The ability of E Lockhart to write uirky hilarious three dimensional characters who I inevitably fall in love with is amazingPerfect Musical PairingCyndi Lauper I Don t Want To Be Your FriendThis song is such an anthem I loved seeing Ruby finally stand up and tell Jackson exactly how she felt And the showdown at the CHUBS bake sale was hilarious No Ms Passive Nice Girl Ruby Also seen on The Readventurer Oh this one you guys EveryoneHow bad does it hurt seeing Ruby have trouble She is so mad and so trying She s learned how to stick up for herself but that sometimes makes things worse The fight at the zoo and Nora still judging her and every single time she dissolves into another panic attack which get so much worse in this book I lost countI love the Tate Boys Bake campaign And the fight with the older girl and the scene there at the bake sale With Jackson when she says what she thinks I cried on the subwayThe chapter titles are particularly good And the emulsions Am not super excited I caught the misspelling in Hilary Duff s name Not 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 Noel is writing her notes Jackson is giving her frogs Gideon is helping her cook and Finn is maki.
