Book Review #301 - The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg

The Catastrophic History of You and Me
Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning.... Welcome to forever.

BRIE'S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn't love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she's D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there's Patrick, Brie's mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick's help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she's ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?
My Rating: 3.5/5
I have had this book on loan from the library for close to a year and finally decided to read it.
Brie was a character that I didn't like to begin with, but gradually came to connect with her in the second half of the book where I felt like she really matured.
Now that I have finished reading the book I can say that I thought the plot was really unique and interesting. Although, whilst I was reading it I had no idea where it was going.
I liked the inclusion of the dog Hamloaf, and how he was the only remaining connection with her old life.
