Why We Broke Up
By Daniel Handler

3.5 out of 5

Min Green writes a very long and detailed letter to her ex-boyfriend, Ed Slaterton, about the numerous reasons for why they broke up. Min has a large box of things, each one related to Ed, and a reason for why they broke up. Ed, being the super star co-captain of the high school basketball team, and Min being, not arty, but different from Ed's popular typical friends.

This was really, actually, a very good book. The writing style is different from any other book I have read, I really liked it. It was refreshing to read something that does not fall into the typical vampire, love triangel, dystopia style that is so prevelant today, and this book is really good too. However, Min and Ed's relationship is less than two months long, so I don't know how many things could have really been reasons for why they broke up. Other than that, really good. Also the book was mad heavy. I don't why, the pages were thicker or whatever, but I got a workout reading this book.
