I felt kind of bad for some of the guys on the list, but at the same time, while I read, I kept wishing I was on it. Where did you get the idea for The Boyfriend List? Did you have a boyfriend list? In high school, I used to keep a list of all the boys I ever kissed. There were little hearts dotting the is and everything! But when I looked for it some fifteen years after graduating, the list had disappeared.
And there was an idea. It was quite a difficult book to structure, in the end. Readers often wonder how much an author is her main character. Are there any similarities between you and Ruby?
Did you ever lose a friend over a boy? All the events of the story are fictional. In the past 10 days year- old Ruby Oliver has become a social outcast at Tape prep, lost all of her friends and her boyfriend Jackson broke up with her and started dating her former best friend.
It is no surprise that Ruby has a few panic attacks and then prompted by her mother, starts seeing a shrink, Doctor Z.
As a starting point, the doctor suggests a Boyfriend List — a list of boys that Ruby has dated or wanted to date, present and past, going all the way back to preschool. The list is what frames their sessions and the narrative, each chapter supposedly relating to a boy in the list: supposedly because of course, the subject of this book is Ruby Oliver and her relationships with her family, her friends and yes, with the boys in her life.
It includes funny and heartbreaking moments — also embarrassing and stupid ones. And I loved the cool psychologist and her sessions with Ruby.
These were portrayed in a very positive way and I truly appreciated that. Ruby Oliver behaves like a teen, thinks like a teen and I am probably not going to be the first one to note how events and behaviours in the novel reminded me a lot of my own teenage years. One of the things I absolutely adore about E.
More than that though, she writes those in a way that is infused with feminist lessons without making it even remotely preachy or heavy-handed. But she is not an excepto-girl, she is no more special than any other girl out there — her experiences are relatable because most of us and most of her own friends are going through them.
And how that is perfectly fine and natural and healthy. The real question is how do you deal with those feelings and that is something to each individual.
There is a great moment in which the kids learn how charged this word is and its social context. This scene was probably too close to being didactic but since it was within the confines of a lesson, it was less jarring that it could have been.Write your review.
