    Reviewed by Katie Hayes for TeensReadToo.com

    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. <BR/><BR/>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. <BR/><BR/>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!) <BR/><BR/>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.¿ <BR/><BR/>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.

    My expeierience.

    I used to love this guy. He was nice and sweet and funny. We dated for two whole days! He said he wasnt ready for a girlfriend. About a week later he asked my best friend out three times. She said no all three times! I got my revenge a week later by tripping him during class and being mean to him. I told him i was sorry but i didnt really mean it. Now im popular,more boys like me and,im livin' large,baby!

    Plz read this im freaking out !!!-chelsea

    Ok i need help.

    So when i entered the 6th i was kinda depressed cuz last yr. (Fifth grade) my bf since kindergarten's valentine party moved across town. Well i met a bff i knew in kinder but we got seperated in 1st grade. Well further into the yr. She tots statted crushing on this boy named osciel. I loved to be msgr on notes and stuff and besides i sat behind him. Well after i realized how funny he was,nice, and sweet he was, i fell hard for him.HARD.
    He was on my mind every min of the day. My bff knew and she was happy that we could she this. My cousin accedentily told him how if feel. It was never the same w/ us again. We rarely talked, we stopped hanging out, and so much more. Yet i find him staring at me, my friends thought he liked me cuz when asked he'd stand there to shy to speak. Well, i was devestated when i found out tht this summer he moved. I know where he is an he dnt live far but im not allowed to go outside. Well i started falling for other boys like a mess. And eventually i landed and fell head over heels on his cousin!!!! Never in a million yrs. Would ive ever thought id love him so much! Btw i think he knows cuz theres time where he catches me staring. Well yea im pretty sure he knows. And the day before thanksgiving ( 2 days ago ) at school me and my friends were playing that game where you need to have the other persons hand in yours. Well he joined and it was our turn. But when he put them in mine we tots forgot what we were doing and just kept them there. After like 10 min we finally let go and now i really know he knows i like him. Prob. Is that he tells osciel everything and if im right and osciel might like me a lil then wat? So i need help im confused and ugghh i never had these probs w/ Winston (ex). Ps i have talked to osciel on Facebook but it was never like we used to.

    Well plz help if you are awesome enough to have read this all then plz reply to Chelsea r.

    Thirsty

    You people are really thirsty.. like no joke.. how are you going to put personal information like that on here? I honestly don't understand. I actually wanted to see what people thought of this book but all I see are people wanting to talk or have sex. Like, get your life together...
