Staff Reviews



Told in a series of letters (really one long letter divided into chapters), and objects, in a box to Ed. Min tells the story of her first real love and heartbreak. There are many first woven throughout- including the ultimate “first time.” As Min and Ed grow closer, the differences between them start to tear them apart. The climax is a little bit of a letdown, a lot of buildup with a very obvious and simple “big reveal.” Overall an enjoyable novel with a unique style of storytelling, and this is something I can appreciate as a writer. Age 15 and up. --Renee from Books Inc. Market Street

Description


I'm telling you why we broke up, Ed. I'm writing it in this letter, the whole truth of why it happened.

Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they broke up. Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend, will be dumped.
