THE BREAK-UP DIARIES VOL. 2

Author(s): 

Carter and Elliot give us break-ups from two different perspectives. Full of teen angst with plenty of drama, both stories have some interesting twists that will make adult readers feel glad they’re way past that age.

In Carter’s “So Over It,” Zoey is floored when her first-ever boyfriend Mario dumps her via Facebook. In Elliot’s “Swag,” two guys vie for Zori’s attention, but she’s only interested in having fun -— until one of the boys gets into serious trouble.
