Can Ruby save her parents’ marriage? Maybe, with a little help.
A year ago, Alan and Stacey Navarro separated, leaving their daughter, Ruby, to live with her mom and an over-caffeinated Shih Tzu. People split up all the time, and most kids might learn to deal. Not Ruby.
A bright, funny fourteen-year-old who loves shoes and horror movies, Ruby is on an insane mission to get her parents back together. But she can’t do it alone.
She needs her two best friends, a dog named Ed Wood, an arrogant filmmaker, a bizarre collection of actors–and a chainsaw-wielding movie killer. Yeah, it’ll be fine.
“In the form of Ruby, Ramirez imparts to readers all the confusion brought about by puberty; the emotional neediness camouflaged by sarcasm; the obsession and continuing frustration with boys; and the bonds female teenagers forge with one another.” —IndieReader
