Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler art by Maira Kalman

Min is giving Ed all of their memories back and she’s writing this note to him with it. This is why they broke up.

This book has been sitting on my shelf for ages! I was super excited about it when I got it, but after a few of my friends read it and weren’t too thrilled, I’d lost interest. As I’m trying to read through all the books that have been on my TBR for way too long, this one came up. So read it I did.

The format of this book was very strange and I didn’t feel like it flowed very well. Min’s interests were just, not interesting. The whole book you know this relationship isn’t going to work out because, obviously, they break up.

I did love her friendship with Al. I liked that they talked about sex like maybe it isn’t this thing that’s so holy and is only to be had with one person.

Overall this book was just okay. At times I was enjoying it and interested and at others I just want to be done with it.

I gave Why We Broke Up 3/5 stars.

I would recommend this to middle school readers.
