The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers by Lynn Weingarten

 If there’s an upside to having your heart broken, it’s this: A broken heart makes you brave.

The first day of sophomore year doesn’t go the way Lucy planned. After a summer apart from her boyfriend, she’s ready to greet him with a special surprise and instead gets a shocking one in return: He’s breaking up with her. Beyond devastated, Lucy has no idea how she’s going to make it through homeroom, let alone the rest of her life.

Enter three stunning girls with the unnatural ability to attract boys and an offer Lucy can’t refuse: They can heal her heart in an instant. And then she’ll be one of them—a member of a sisterhood that is impervious to heartbreak and has access to magic distilled from the tears of brokenhearted boys. But to gain their power, Lucy must get a guy to fall in love with her the old-fashioned way, and then break his heart in the next seven days.

While the sisterhood may need another Heartbreaker, Lucy’s only desire is to get her ex back. But how far is she willing to go, and who is she willing to cross to get what she wants?

I had to give this 3.5 stars

Characters: I really didnt like the main character that much because Lucy was very obsessive over her ex-boyfriend Alex and it was just too weird because no one in reality actually acts like she did. It was so unrealistic. The three sisters we very entertaining I really liked them because even though they had 'a strange ability to attract boys' they still had their insicurities and I really liked that because it made them seem realistic.

Plot: The plot was very unique and had many twists and turns even though some of them I saw coming since the beginning. Sometimes I got very mad at Lucy because she just spent all her time thinking of things to get Alex back and she didnt even pay attention to the things and people around her. The writing style was very good, I felt like the words just flew out of the pages. I also liked that even though the story wasnt in first person you still knew what Lucy felt and what she was thinking so you could really put yourself inside the story and feel as though you were right beside Lucy.

Overall: Overall this is a very nice read it went a little deeper than I thought. I had originally expected a nice light summer read but I got so much more and that was a nice surprise. It did have some bad words in there and some hints at things that I dont think little kids should read so I would recommend to 15+.
