Description from the book:
A Seattle fifteen-year-old explains some of the reasons for her recent panic attacks, including breaking up with her boyfriend, losing all her girlfriends, tensions between her performance-artist mother and her father, and more.

My thoughts:
In-a-word: debacle
Interesting way to sort out your life in regards to relationships - a boyfriend list. Each chapter, boyfriend themed, presented different aspects of the character which finally helped solve some of the main character's problems. After reading this book, I created my own boyfriend list. I ended up with about 13. The 13th dude ended up as my hubby. Although breaking up is hard to do, from each relationship I learned what likes and dislikes I had for a partner. All the boyfriend crushes, dates and acquaintances sure make sense in the end.
