Why we broke up by Daniel Handler review...

Title- Why we Broke Up.
Author- Daniel Handler- Aka known as Lemony Snicket when using his Non de Plume.
Publish Date-1st February 2012.
Publisher- Hardie Grant Egmont.

Now for the review...

What I thought:
This is a beautiful piece of work, from the tenderly written words to the beautiful pictures drawn by Maria Kalman, depicting all those memories Ed and Min shared, it is a work of the most astounding nature and uncomparable to other books, because it it quite unlike any others about.
The story is fondly written, Min reminiscing over the times she shared with Ed, the boy she came to love more than she knew was possible, and ending at the end, where she can no longer believe  in how much she loved him, because she hates him so, so strongly.
The characters were all suberb, from Min- sweet, movie loving Min, to Ed- making you trust him Ed, seemingly so in love with Min, Ed. And ending at Al, Min's best friend and a very awesome best friend he is too.
From cover to cover I loved this book, though admittedly not wholeheartedly at all times; it is definitely one for lots of teenager, and adults too, to read.
I'd recommend it for 15+, due to themes and swearing, and prepair for a book unlike others.

Thank you to Hardie Grant Egmont for this review copy!
