This irresistible debut novel from author Pamela Wells touches on a subject all teenagers can relate to-broken hearts. When Sydney, Raven, and Kelly all get dumped on the same night, Alexia-who's never had a serious boyfriend-is happy to have her three BFFs back. To avoid future disasters the girls make a list of 20 rules, including "never ask or beg The Ex to date you again." But staying single is sometimes harder than splitting up in the first place. Soon all four girls, especially Alexia, are doing a little heartbreaking themselves.

Professional reviews

"Breaking up is hard to do, even with today's speedy forms of communication--cell phones, email, and instant messaging. Stina Nielsen takes on the challenge of characterizing four friends--Sydney, Raven, Kelly, and Alexia. Maintaining an appropriate tone of teen angst, Nielsen clearly differentiates each girl's voice and temperament as they all wrestle with boyfriends and other relationships. Trying to follow the "rules" for breaking up, the girls become closer, and their bond grows even stronger. The group stands by each girl as she weathers a relationship storm and demonstrates her own personal strength. Nielsen's narration captures every teen girl's wish for good friends and drama. D.L.M.
