By Julie C. Donaldson
Deseret Book, 2011. 97 pgs. Young Adult Nonfiction
Don't do it. I know you want to. I know you want to pick up that jagged rock and just chuck it through his window. After all, he broke your heart. Worse, he threw it to the ground, danced on it, and then kicked it aside. But you don’t have to resort to criminal activity. There are better ways to get over your broken heart.
Using humor, common sense, and honest, heart-to-heart advice, author Julie C. Donaldson lays out four simple rules that will help you mend your broken heart (including Rule #1: Don’t be pathetic).
This book gives good advice for not only getting over a heart broken romantically, but could also apply to hearts broken by family members or friends. Written with a teen audience in mind, the book has hand drawn pictures, real life stories, and workbook like pages scattered throughout.
