Ever since a bad break-up in high school, Shane Madison has hated confrontations with men -- so much so that she has perfected the art of getting men to break up with her. When Shane finds herself in a financial pinch, her friends suggest she start a side business as "The Breakup Artist." The business takes off, but Shane may have been overly optimistic.

Shane begins dating Ben, a wonderful guy she doesn't realize is out for revenge because she was responsible for his break-up with his last girlfriend. Along the way, she discovers that people and relationships aren't as predictable as she once thought.

Holliday does it again! The reader won't be able to put down this uproariously funny story filled with colorful and heartwarming characters. One can't help but root for Shane as she struggles to stay one step ahead, both financially and romantically. (Jun., 320 pp., $13.00)
