Summary: When her boyfriend breaks up with her on the first day of sophomore year, Lucy has no idea how she’s going to make it through homeroom, let alone the rest of her life. Enter three stunning girls with a magical offer Lucy can’t refuse. All she has to do is get a guy to fall in love with her in the next seven days, and then…break his heart and collect one of his brokenhearted tears. As the girls teach Lucy how to hook a guy (with the help of a little magic), she quickly discovers how far she is willing to go—and who she is willing to cross—to get what she wants.
Fans of Lauren Myracle, Jodi Lynn Anderson, and Meg Cabot will love this tale of breakups, friendship, new crushes, and magic. Told with wit and charm, The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers is sure to be one of this winter’s most irresistible reads!
My review: Who said heartbreak was a curse? Maybe it is for us normal people, but for The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers, it's a gateway to magic powers!
I liked how normal Lucy was. She wasn't too popular, but she wasn't a outcast. She was just in the middle. She had the problems all teens have, and to her they seem like the biggest problems in the world.
This book was a lots of fun! Hearing all about the mythology surrounding The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers was interesting, and the way their magic works was very different and cool!
At first Lucy seems really selfish. It was understandable but selfish. I didn't really want to root for a character who was willing to break another's heart for her own gain. It was thought provoking, would you be willing to break someone's else's heart for your own happiness? Or even just for sport?
The comedy in this book is unbelievably funny! Reading the dialog in this book was a constant stream of "LOL" for me. This book was one that would transfer very well into an audiobook (with the right narrators of course)!
I think my favorite character was Gil. She was really cool, and the only one of the three Heartbreakers that I would like to have as a friend. She was nice, caring and understanding, virtues the other Heartbreakers would be wise to learn!
The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers is a fun, yet thoughtful book. Perfect for over the Winter break!
Cover Comments: I like the stars coming from the hands. This cover complements the book nicely.
