The Breakup Artist
Breaking up with someone is a major pain-unless you can hire someone else to do it for you! And Amelia demands top dollar for her professional break-up services. Everything's business as usual until David, one of the boys she's been hired to dump, throws her for a loop. Now she must decide if David's intentions are genuine, or if there's something sinister behind his flir...more
First, the things I liked about it. Amelia is confident and hard-working. She knows what she wants to be when she "grows up." She knows how much work is involved and is willing to sacrifice to achieve that goal. She has not had an easy life and does not have a relationship with her mother, but she is not giving up. She grows during the course of the book and is willing to change because she can see how her "job" is not...more
However, there were some things that bothered me: I didn't understand how David could so easily change from being so against Amelia's work to wanting to help her. To me, that didn't seem likely since he was constantly trying to get her to stop a...more
Mi mayor problema con él está en el final.
No que tuviese un final triste o trágico, pero sentí una doble moral de parte de algunos personajes que sinceramente me pareció completamente desagradable, además de inesperado. Para mí, fue como si en 10 hojas destruyeran todo lo que se estuvo hablando a lo largo del libro. Se sup...more
Amelia has lived most of her life as an outcast and she loved it. She doesn’t have a friend or any social life for that matter (she doesn’t even have relationship with her mother), and she was happy with i...more
I received an early review copy of this book and had no intention of reading it yet. It was a digital review copy that I didn't have a clue how to transfer to my Kindle so I had to sit at my...more
There was a lot more involved with being a breakup artist than I realized. I thought Amelia's friends would ask her to breakup with their boyfriends and she'd break it to the guys like in junior high. I was happily surprised, Amelia got paid by girls to breakup with their boyfriends in a way t...more
For example, Amelia is a very pretty girl, and she knows it. Throughout the book she kept saying things about how "hot" or "attractive" she was which kind of got old.
Another thing is that I wanted more at the end. I want to know what happened to Karen and I want to know if Amelia's relationship with her mom was fixed or if...more
Overall, it’s a cute story. I liked our heroine Amelia. To earn a little extra college money she helps girls breakup with their boyfriends. Because of her “profession” she doesn’t have any friends, mainly because she changes personality depending on who she is breaking up with. She goes through multiple hair colors, clothes and names to get the job done and keep her identity a secret. Then one day she stumbles u...more
Amelia...I felt sooo sorry for her. She changes hair colors, styles, and personalities with each job. She do...more
(The girl on the cover looks way too old for the character. I know the author has nothing to do with that, it just sort of irks me.)
Descriptive scenes, descriptive characters and I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop throughout the book, it was great!
