This image is the cover for the book Boys


A funny, wise, and charmingly illustrated guide to the different kinds of boys we may encounter as we enter—or reenter—the dating scene.

Author and illustrator 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!

With simple yet insightful text and delightfully whimsical imagery, Boys: An Illustrated Field Guide gives readers the confidence they begin to consider the possibilities of romance. It’s ultimately a tender, relatable guide about emerging from heartache with hope, and most importantly, a stronger knowledge of the self.
