Jennifer had the perfect boyfriend, the All-American Boy, Max Brown, who she has had a crush on since kindergarten. Everything was fine and peachy for them, or at least that is what Jennifer believed. Out of nowhere Max tells her that he has been thinking about this a lot and just ends their relationships. Heartbroken, Jennifer has no idea what went wrong and is having trouble seeking out the answers, most likely because all she can do is cry in her room.

Jennifer's grandmother believes that the only way she can get over the relationship is by reading The Breakup Bible, the pink book with a golden heart torn in the middle, written by Dr. Emory Emerson. At first Jennifer is still too shaken up about the relationship that she can't even think of her ex's five faults (step one of The Breakup Bible). Jennifer is too busy thinking that Max has figured out that he has made the hugest mistake by breaking up with her. She constantly wonders about this when Max seems to be sending mixed signals to her in their journalism class.

But as Jennifer begins to see that thinking about Max may not be the healthiest thing for her, she takes Dr. Emerson's book and starts using the ten commandments, from trying to not talk bad about your ex to getting a new hobby. But little does Jennifer know that the changes that occur aren't only because of the book--and that the perfect boyfriend she once had isn't so perfect after all.

THE BREAKUP BIBLE is funny, sad, and very sassy all rolled up into one. Melissa Kantor tells the story of Jennifer, who everyone will soon grow to love and cheer for, hoping that she gets together with just the right guy. Not only Jennifer, but also her Nana and mother, makes the story even better. Teen angst never looked so good until THE BREAKUP BIBLE. I say that it is in need of a sequel.

    I give it 3 Manhattans

    It was okay, not the best I've read. It reminded me of when me and my boyfriend broke up. I went through pretty much the same things Jennifer went through. A lot of girls could probably relate to Jennifer.

    Girly

    A nice, light read that is relatable to every teen girl. This book is about Jenny, a high school junior, trying to get over being dumped by her "perfect" boyfriend, while also trying to publish her controversial article in the school newspaper. A fun, girly book.
