Review: Why We Broke Up

Why We Broke Up - Maira Kalman, Daniel Handler

So. Good.

This book reads like e-mails I have written: the stream-of-consciousness run-ons of high emotion. The love and the heartbreak are equally believable; the characters are the same. I started off not loving Min, the protagonist, but she grew on me; she also grew. My favorite kind of YA romance is the kind that's more about how it changes the people involved than it is about their relationship being all perfect and adorable and fated for all time. For the most part, this book achieves that really, really well.
