The lavishly praised Printz Honour Award winner, now in
Min Green and Ed Slaterton have broken up, so Min is writing Ed
a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they brokeup.
A movie ticket from their first date, a comb from the motel room
they shared, and every other memento collected over the course of a
giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is
illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend,
will be dumped.
Why We Broke Up is a sincere and moving portrait of
first love, first heartbreak and all the firsts in between. Min''s
smart, sharp, devastatingly honest voice is one of the most
memorable in contemporary young adult literature.
