The Breakup Bible [book review]

The Breakup Bible
Author: Melissa Kantor

Synopsis: Jen Lewis is having a great junior year. She is the features editor of the school paper, and she's dating Max Brown, the paper's editor-in-chief. Everything is perfect-that is, until Max says, "Maybe it would be better if we were just friends." In shock and total denial, Jen wonders how she is going to deal with the pain of seeing Max in school every day. Her misery only intensifies when her grandmother gives her a book that she heard about on the radio. Dr. Emerson's The Breakup Bible claims that "there's no reason a woman can't get over a breakup very quickly if she'll just follow a few basic commandments." Jen is doubtful. What does Dr. Emerson know about her and Max? (from Goodreads)

Rating: ★★★★

The Breakup Bible was a fun, fast-paced read. I actually found myself rooting for Jen to be happy and to move on from her heartache. But as we, girls and maybe some guys, know, it isn't always easy getting dumped. Especially if the guy/girl is your first love. Now I have to give big points to Melissa Kantor for making me feel like a teen again and going through the motions of how it would feel like to get dumped (I've never been dumped). Anyway, I highly recommend this book to whoever has been dumped and survived; You Go Girlfriend! You'll see what that means once you've read the book.

you know you love me
