Brief Chronicle of Another Stupid Heartbreak
A teen relationship columnist struggling with writer's block in the wake of a devastating breakup decides to chronicle the planned breakup of another couple in this standalone by the author of Let's Get Lost.
Dumped by her boyfriend the summer after senior year, teen love and relationship columnist Lu Charles has hit a wall with her writing. If she doesn’t pick her next topic soon, she’ll lose her gig at online magazine Misnomer—and her college scholarship.
When Lu overhears another couple talking about delaying their precollege breakup until the end of the summer, she becomes convinced that they’re the answer to cracking her writer’s block. Are Cal and Iris prolonging their misery by staying together, knowing the end is near? Or does the secret to overcoming love and heartbreak lie with them?
One thing is certain—if Lu can’t make a breakthrough before summer is over, she can kiss her future goodbye.
