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.

To the girls from NOVEMBER
Well im starting with the girl who said they met the guy from a party. Okay. Well mostly meeting people from parties and just fooling around is mostly for lust. Maybe he just wanted to fool around and its basically to get is self esteem up. So dont expect much from him. Mostly because he isnt giving you attention or talking to you is obvious. The fooling around was just for fun. So im sorry but it was only for lust.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Now for the girl with her boyfriend moving and now this guy that also likes you. There is no wrong or right answer. I can understand if you did break up d wted to move on. You dont wnt to wait and you want to move on and actually be with someone. Your probably thinking youll never get to see him again. Well go head and date this new guy. He likes you so nothing wrong there. But if you plan to stay with your bf. Than go aead. You probably love him and all. So go head and wait for him and hope for the best.
