Book summary

While Ruby's comfortable being alone, her friends mean the world to her. In Ruby Gloom's Guide to Friendship, Ruby introduces her many strange pals: Skull Boy (hopefully one day her boyfriend), Doom Kitty (her best girlfriend in the animal world), Scaredy Bat (her pet bat who's scared of the dark), and more. She offers a host of tips for making and keeping friends, including: "Never be two-faced . . . unless of course you were born that way . . . then you're excused," "Friends help you to see things differently . . . especially when they have multiple eyes," and "Birds of a feather flock together . . . but it's still OK to fly your own way sometimes." A role model for her myriad of 'tween and teen fans, Ruby (think Beetlejuice crossed with Eloise) accepts herself for who she is, and so, in turn, accepts others for who they are. AUTHOR BIO: Based in Los Angeles, Mighty Fine was established in 1992. They have been designing and manufacturing sportswear for teenagers across the world since then. Ruby Gloom is an icon of Mighty Fine, one of their main characters, and a major focus of a business that has grown in leaps and bounds in the past twelve years. [via]
