    Right up

    Jenna took the book from me but didn’t open it. “Okay,” she said. “Go deal with Archer.”
    “He’s upset, but this is more important,” I said, nodding at the grimoire. Let Cal and Jenna think I was brave and self-sacrificing. That was better than telling them that I was too chicken to talk to Archer right now. How exactly does one say, “Sorry the ghost of your ex-
    girlfriend used me to make out with my fiancé”?
    But Jenna was my best friend. “Soph,” she said softly. “Go talk to him. Now.”
    I sighed. “You know, bossiness is my least favorite of your personality traits. Right up there with your unerring ability to be right all the time.”


    Right up there with your unerring ability to be right all the time. ??

    Re: Right up

    If a list was made of the "least favorite personality traits" then "bossiness" would be at the top of the list. The "ability to be right all the time" would be "right up there" near the top of the list as well.

    Re: Right up

    My guess is:
    I don't like your being bossy as much as I don't like your being right all the time (even though you ARE right all the time!). The personality traits are, so to say, on the same level of "my not liking them in you" :)
    hope this helps a tad...
