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?
In a send-up to the scores of dating books on the market, Melissa Kantor’s The Breakup Bible tackles the aftermath of a high school romance with her trademark honesty, humor, and wit.

Junior Jen Lewis' life revolves around the school newspaper and her boyfriend, the paper's editor. So things really go south when Max dumps her, and Jen is left to wonder why and wander around hopelessly. When Jen's grandmother gives her Dr. Emory Emerson's The Breakup Bible, brimming with advice about moving on, Jen tosses it; she doesn't want to move on. Then, she learns that Max left her for another girl on the newspaper and decides she desperately needs the guidance. Written with wit and featuring a few fine plot twists, this will have teen girls nodding sympathetically. There's also a strong subplot centered on a newspaper article Jen and an African American friend are writing about the school's de facto segregation, which adds some heft to the oldest story in the world. A solid entry for chick-lit shelves. Cooper, Ilene
