Praise for the boyfriend list

* "Spot-on dialogue and details make this a painfully recognizable and addictive read."--Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Lockhart shines at depicting the all-encompassing microcosm of school social life."--Kirkus Reviews

"Lockhart has created a fun character in the spirit of Louise Rennison's Georgia Nicholson and Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones....The snappy dialogue makes this story a winner."--School Library Journal

"An ingenious way to look at one teenager's life....The book is spectacular, with a well-constructed story and deep, emotional significance."--The Romantic Times

"Breezy and genuine, with a tender understanding of who really walks the halls in America's high schools. The Boyfriend List made me laugh and, yeah, I was kind of attracted to Kim."--Ned Vizzini, author of It's Kind of a Funny Story

"The Boyfriend List is a wonderful comic exploration of the maddening (but hilarious) world of mothers and fathers, the gut-wrenching politics (and excitement) of multiple crushes, and the complications (and kinship) of friendship. Ruby Oliver is a winning girl (even if she doesn't realize it) we'd all befriend in a heartbeat (as long as she doesn't have her eyes on our guy)."--Jill A. Davis, author of Girls' Poker Night

"Ruby Oliver's list of boyfriends is a wonderful and tragic document of our times. 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."--J. Minter, author of the Insiders series
