A breakup can seem like the end of the world to a teenage girl. Clea Hantman, author of the new book 30 DAYS TO GETTING OVER THE DORK YOU USED TO CALL YOUR BOYFRIEND, realizes this and treats her readers with sensitivity. But along with offering some advice and perspective, Hantman also offers a lot of fun.

When you're mourning the loss of a relationship, she writes, you go through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The book is divided into parts based on these five stages, and for each of the thirty days, she offers an activity.

At first these activities include things like putting all reminders of ¿the dork¿ in a box and writing down all the things that were wrong with him, but eventually they move on to things like exercising, volunteering, even feng shui. Every day also has a song that's relevant to that day's activity and is, usually, pretty cool. (I made some additions to my iTunes after reading this book!)

The book is also sprinkled with pop culture references that teenagers can relate to and concludes with the lists, ¿Girls Who Have Dumped with Aplomb,¿ ¿Girls Who Have Been More Famously Dumped Than You (And Lived to Tell!),¿ ¿Movies About Being Dumped,¿ ¿More Break-Up Songs,¿ and ¿Books About the Ups, Downs, and In-Betweens of Relationships.¿

I don't know how effective this book would be for getting over a serious relationship that lasted for years, but I think it provides a lot of guidance and sympathy for most teenage girls dealing with breakups. For everyone else it will, at the very least, provide a smile.

    Olivia, most of the time boys don't see how perfict girls,like you actualy are. You just need to keep bring you and i garentee that you will get a boyfriend. As for flirting, u can kinda tell by there body language. If he likes you he will let ya know! Hope this helped!

    Dump his sorry ass. Honestly your story sounds a little fake and how wouldnt you know your bff was dating him? But still what sick minded person would cheat in the first place? Did he know that was your bff? Well goodluck!!! Anything else?(:

    To the rare minor

    First try sitting down and talking to her. If that doesnt work, talk to your dad. If that doesnt work, talk to your school counciler. And if that doesnt work call social services. Kaily K
