Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide is a tender, coming-of-age gift book about the many different kinds of boys that girls (and boys) fall in love with and the lessons we learn from a broken heart. Heather Ross journeys with the reader through the many kinds of boys she will meet in the wild—smart boys, dangerous boys, beautiful boys, and more—and the wonders and mysteries they all hold. With its field guide approach, women learn how to identify these types of boys in their natural habitats and what tools are needed to navigate each kind of relationship. (For example, quiet boys are especially hard to identify because they hide in the tall grass or silent corners of the library!) Written in a wise voice and illustrated full of whimsical imagery, Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide gives readers the confidence they need to reenter the dating scene. It’s ultimately a tender, relatable guide about emerging from heartache with hope, and most importantly, a stronger knowledge of the self.
