KIRKUS REVIEW

An experienced advice columnist offers a self-help guide on surviving being dumped. Hantman guides the brokenhearted reader through 30 days of activities, including craft projects, which will help the woman scorned work past her hellish fury. Readers fresh from a breakup are encouraged in a friendly yet wise and respectful tone to spend quality time with their friends and perform activities that will help them achieve a better sense of self. The guide is divided into five sections, one for each of the stages of grief. Readers are reassured that it’s okay to remember the good times of their broken relationship and that it’s okay to feel that breaking up really is hard to do even when the boy who dumped them is a dork. By the end, the reader is ready to face the dating world again. Backmatter includes lists such as “Movies about being dumped,” “Girls who have been dumped more famously than you (and lived to tell)” and a list of 15 YA novels about relationships both good and bad. Aimed at a very specific audience, but those who need it will find some trustworthy advice. (Nonfiction. YA)
