Oh wow, buckle up READERS cause THE CATASTROPHIC HISTORY OF YOU AND ME will take you on a motorcycle ride to heaven and hell like you could never have imagined. When it comes to the afterlife, this book totally rocks. I instantly liked the main character Brie and the supporting characters were so freakin' interesting and moving that you won't want to put this novel down. Jess Rothenberg, a former MG/YA editor at a major publishing house, made the switch to YA author. This debute novel is definitely a winner! It is my understanding that Jess got the idea for this book when she read an article about a person who literally died of a broken heart. That's exactly what happens to Brie. After she passes, she has the five steps of grieving to go through: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Sadness, Acceptance. Trust me, you'll go through those stages right along with her.
Put this on your must-read list! It's well worth it.
