15 Guys, 11 Shrink Appointments, 4 Ceramic Frogs and Me, Ruby Oliver Ruby Oliver is fifteen and has a shrink. But before you make up your mind about her, you should know that she has had a pretty awful (and eventful) past ten days. She has: lost her boyfriend (#13 on the boyfriend list), lost her best friend, lost all her other friends, did something suspicious with a boy (#10), did something advanced with a boy (#15), had an argument with a boy (#14), drank her first beer (someone handed it to her), got caught by her mom (ag!), had a panic attack (scary), lost a lacrosse game, failed a math test, hurt Meghan's feelings, became a social outcast, and had graffiti written about her in the girls' bathroom. But don't worry, Ruby lives to tell the tale. Through a special assignment to list all the boys she's ever had the slightest, little, any-kind-of-anything with, comes an unfortunate series of events that would be enough to send any girl in a panic.

I give it - 4/5
My review - I am a big fan of E. Lockhart so I was very happy when I received a copy of this and I loved every second of this.
Ruby is having a bit of a tough time. She has lost her boyfriend, lost her friends and her parents have made her see a Doctor. A Doctor who makes her write a list on all the guys she has had any interaction with. From hello to kissing. That list consist of 15 boys and this book goes through all of them but they all lead back to Jackson. They guy who recently just broke up with her and who she can't get over. She still loves him but after some events and loosing everyone she doesn't know what to do, will this list help her?
I so adored this book. I just wanted to wrap Ruby up in a blanket and tell her everything will be okay. This book was hilarious and filled with drama. The best kind of book. Ruby I would say is a little bit of a pushover. Some moments I was shouting at her to just tell people the truth but I know how scary it can get in situations like that. I cannot wait to see where Ruby goes in the next 3 books as I am addicted.
Some of the characters made me want to reach in the book and hit them and some I wanted to cuddle. It is such a great book. E. Lockhart has written such a fun filled book that will have you gripped from the beginning, reading all the meetings/dates Ruby has had with these boys and you won't stop until the end, like I did. It was so good that I cannot wait to dive right into the next one to see what Ruby gets up to next. She is a fantastic character and I cannot wait to watch her grow and see where this boyfriend list will take her.
