BOOK REVIEW: BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO
BY ANNE DAYTON AND MAY VANDERBILT
We hope you enjoy this book review by
As the wedding of Christine’s father and his girlfriend “The Bimbo” inches closer, she knows the time to act is now. It has only been little over a year since her mother died in a car accident and the sooner Christine can break up the couple, the better. But she is unable to focus on the task at hand. After the perfect summer together the Miracle Girls are back at school and rapidly falling back into their old routines. Now that boys, schoolwork, cheerleaders, and marching bands are back in the picture, Christine notices the Girls drifting apart. Can Christine somehow stop the wedding and save the thing that matters most to her, the Girls friendship?
Breaking Up Is Hard To Do was even better than the first book in the series, Miracle Girls. There was nothing fake or superficial about this book. It was so plausible that I sometimes forgot that it was fiction. The easy to decipher reasons behind the character’s decisions made their emotions easier to understand, even if I didn’t agree. The characters followed a realistic path to maturity and emotional stability. They didn’t just wake up one morning and realize that the world didn’t revolve around them. They made the process slowly, but steadily. The transition between events ran smoothly even though it covered a long time span. The plot was full of complex and vulnerable relationships and ready to blow emotions, yet the chaotic air of uncertainty was understandable because of the authors ability to describe it through simplicity.
I found Breaking Up Is Hard To Do a great engaging “I stayed up all night reading” novel.
