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.

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...

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!

Hi, i had a boyfriend and we were great until we went onto a feild trip and we were in the same group and i go sit by him and he acts like im not even there not even a hi or something. So the next day at lunch he sits beside me and acts like he didnt boow me off so tht makes me even madder. So the nct day i found out from my sister tht he likes one of my freinds and he was uust using me to get closer to her and then i dumped him because i also found out he was also only going out with me because i have a big butt im smart and i have a pretty face. And i really liked him

Id say sure. Ask him why and if he doesnt come up with a good reason then id say hes just looking for sex.
