The Catastrophic History of You and Me

The Catastrophic History of You and Me

When dying of a broken heart is just the beginning…

Brie has a great life. She has great friends, a supportive family, and a loving boyfriend…..or so she thought. Everything is going great for Brie until her boyfriend tells her he doesn’t love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally. Now Brie is dead, as in not coming back dead, and she discovers that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. To further complicate the whole dying of a broken heart thing, there’s Patrick, Brie’s mysterious afterlife guide who just might hold the key to her forever after.

Why You Should Read This Book:

With so many teenagers (and adults) feeling like their breakup will be the death of them, I thought that the premise of this book sounded promising. After all, its not very often that you read a book about a breakup that actually kills someone.  I’m happy to report that this book offers more than just an interesting death. It also offers readers three-dimensional characters, laugh out loud humour, plot twists, and an ending that saves the best for last. Overall, I am very pleased this book addresses the various stages of grief (in a realistic way) without making for a gloomy read. Instead, learning about love in all its various forms takes center stage and the plot twists throughout the book will leave readers feeling satisfied and inspired.
