"Remember me to one who lives there, he once was a true love of mine."

The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers by Lynn Weingarten: When Lucy's boyfriend breaks up with her on the first day of the new school year, she doesn't know what to do. Brokenhearted and humiliated, Lucy accepts a magical offer of help from three girls. But everything has a price.

In return for their help, the three girls ask Lucy to make a boy fall in love with her within seven days, break his heart and then collect one of his brokenhearted tears. It doesn't seem like much especially when Lucy is willing to do just about anything to get back what she lost.

Heartbreak, it affects everyone differently, which is what I like about this book. Lucy is sad but she's bitter and angry too. I'm so used to just seeing acceptance and defeat in novels about heartbreak so Lucy taking charge of how she feels and wanting to do something about it is refreshing. It'll definitely make for an interesting read.

Also, who are those three girls? And why do they want the tears of the brokenhearted? It's all pretty weird and mysterious.

The book trailer is vair vair creepy but awesome too. It makes me want to read the novel even more now but since it's not even out yet, I have to wait. I am not a patient person I will have you know.

The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers comes out December 27th 2011 but there is more than one date for it. The publisher's website says the 14th of January but the author's website, amazon, and goodreads have it set for December.
