Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.
Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?
But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!
Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.
This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review.
