I wanted to know why he broke up with her, seeing how he and Brie were so lovey-dovey in their relationship and when I found out what the reason was, I wanted to hug him. Brie sees how her various family members and friends handle her death and grieve for her loss. This was definitely a very great book.

It didn’t have that special push I like to have in books. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. On the opposite side, she also is able to bring on the sadness and I found myself unable to read a few times because of blurry vision. It grew from a 3 – to a 4 – to a 5 star reading experience for me, jeswica knowing what I know now, and if I were to re-read it, I doubt the beginning would seem like a 3 anymore.

I love how the initials of the four besties spell B rie -E mma -S adie -T ess. This book was so awesome and amazing. Brie is a likable-enough narrator, when she’s not being vengeful.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. She roams around with Patrick and enjoys herself. But on a Sunday afternoon, I needed something different to read and I picked it up. But how hiatory she supposed to face the Ever After with a broken heart and no one to call her own?

The Catastrophic History of You and Me

There was love, sadness, heartbreak, betrayal and hope. Or at least I did the first two. But here’s what I’ll tell you: I’ve grown-up and become a bit jaded since then, but I could feel my fourteen-year-old self smiling and very pleased as I finished the book. I like how the story progressed for five stages of grieving? There’s this giant big twist at the end that affects everything, and it involves a bargain, but It’s cute, funny, heart-breaking, sad, beautiful, honest, and a whole slew of other adjectives.

This time, it’s a mysterious flash of I thought the story sounded beautiful and maybe a little mysterious. Also, the chapters are titled after songs, some of them popular love songs, some of rothenber corny songs from the 80s. Or maybe I have a history test coming up. Arden had a very harsh No-Tattling policy. I almost cried when Brie saw her family and how she reacted.


I highly recommend this debut, and cannot wait to read other things from Jess Rothenburg in the future!

The Catastrophic History of You and Me definitely crosses the line between fun and heartbreaking. Besides all that, I really liked the book and all the stuff leading up catastrophc the end, even if the ending was a bit of a bust.

I thought Rothenberg did adn fantastic job illustrating this, and despite the problems I noted, I think a lot of readers will love this book. His name alone is wonderful. The title is a mouthful, but I like it. And if there’s any doubt as to why, see the first paragraph of this review again.


There is an attraction from the very first moment they saw each other but they came to love each other after the time they spent together. She is such a fun character to read about. And like the synopsis says, her boyfriend breaks her heart.
