Jasper Fforde's Shades of Grey took me forever to read. I just don't have a lot of discretionary times these days what with B and D sucking away hours on end. And Shades of Grey, though loads of fun, is long and involved and full of invented words like loopholerly. So, I followed up my Fforde's dystopic romp with several short books that I could blow through in a matter of hours.

First in line was the 3rd in E. Lockhart's Ruby Oliver Series. Ruby still has a tough time managing her life, her friendships, her parents, her panic attacks and, most of all, boys. I just love Ruby's voice and her use of language. Ruby offers real insights into human nature while her self-awareness remains painfully lacking which is what makes her story so funny and so cringe-worthy all at once.
