**Thank you so much to Animal Media Group LLC for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review!**

what i liked
  • It's a funny read! I found myself laughing out loud at the different stories. Some of the breakups are just so weird and humorous that I can't help myself. My favorite was one story about a couple that broke up and then this guy threw a game boy at the girl and ran off. Like what?? And I'm pretty sure they weren't that young!
  • There are hilarious drawings that go along with every story. They really add to each breakup story and are funny to look at. 
  • There's even an email at the end of the book where you can submit your own breakup stories. It gives me hope that there will be a volume 2 of the book. 
what i disliked
  • It was such a fast read! I consider this partly what I liked about it, but at the same time, I wish there was more! I kept trying to swipe forward on my Kindle but then there wasn't anything else. 


  1. I was giggling when I read the title. I could only imagine what sort of stories people contributed. Sounds really fun.

  2. I got a chance to reviewed this book a while back too and I agree, it's funny and amazing! I wish it was longer, but I have hopes for book 2 too :D
