This is their one non fantasy, non-sci-fi Gamebook. According to the description it has 40+ endings and the file size is small. Might have to grab this.

I bought this when it came out its very much on the girl side of the game books series,
It's all about meeting and interacting with different boyfriends and when I tried to ignore them I got one of the fail endings
Its not bad if you don't mind pretending to be a girl

To be fair, getting a bad ending because you've chosen not to pursue a guy is even worse when you actually are a girl. I actually find the forced romance angle of this book super-creepy (not in the supernatural sense), and think it'd work better with that element downplayed a bit. :P

Spinning off on a related tangent, I'd quite like to see a Veronica Mars gamebook.

Can't hug every cat.
