it was ok
Read in August, 2012

I listened to the audiobook version - the narrator was amazing (as usual). But, the book ... oh I am SO glad this is a short book, otherwise I don't think I could have powered through to the end. Actually, the interview with the author & illustrator at the end of the audiobook was more interesting than the entire book.

Min, the main character, is overly verbose in an obnoxious (Rory Gilmore-esque) sort of way. And seriously, I shouldn't have been reading a book about why a relationship that lasted less than 3 months, between 2 16-year olds ended! So - my bad ... but that book also should never be written! Maybe this is intended for teenagers EXCEPT I would NEVER advise a teenage girl to give a letter to her now ex-boyfriend detailing all the things she thought during their relationship ESPECIALLY if he's on a team - basketball, football etc. That's just asking for it to be shared with everybody in school & joked about.

So 2 stars because it's a short book & it has some cute illustrations.
