Real Live Boyfriends by E. Lockhart

In this last installment (*sniff*) of the Ruby Oliver series, Ruby is once again experiencing boy troubles when Noel suddenly withdraws from their relationship.  Ruby is at a loss to explain what happened.  But as she tried to figure out what happened to her real live boyfriend, she realizes how her own behavior is affecting her life.
But you have to like him and he has to like you -  and everyone has to know you're together.
He's your real live boyfriend! p.2
First, let me say that I love, love the Ruby Oliver series.  It is one of the few series that I have read multiple times and now that it is complete I will have to do a complete read through once again.  They are some beautiful, sweet complex books and I love Ruby and all her heartbreak and the unfairness of it all. 

And this book perfectly completes the series.  Do I wish there was more?  Well, yes.  Because I really will miss Ruby.  But I am happy with how the story turned out.  It was a great ending for Ruby.  I'm glad that she finally came to terms with herself and I love with whom she ended up.  And I am often a sucker for footnotes (if they are done right. *cough Bartimaeus*) so I love the lists and the footnotes.  Really there is nothing else to say. A great end to a great series.
