This book is the fourth and final in a series about Ruby Oliver. In this last book, Ruby is overjoyed because she finally has a real live boyfriend Noel. After heading to New York to visit his brother for the month of August, Noel returns and is different. He seems quieter and less interested in Ruby. Besides trying to figure out what is going on with Noel, Ruby is in the middle of college applications, dealing with her crazy and irrational parents and, once again, learning who her true friends are. All of the stress is enough to bring Ruby back to having panic attacks.
