AND find out more about the lovely author, Jess Rothenberg!
First things first, you need to know more about this book:
Jess Rothenberg has done it. We’re giggling, we’re tearing up, we’re swooning, we’re full-on crying, and we’re back to laughing all over again. Her debut novel, The Catastrophic History of You and Me, will charm the leather motorcycle jacket right off your back and take you on an amazing ride. It’s about a girl named Brie who dies at the very beginning of the book, literally, of a broken heart. It’s about how she deals with what happened to her, how she works through her grief while uncovering all of the secrets of the living that had been hidden to her before. Will she find the real meaning of true love? Will she learn to let go of the life she once new—even her adorable dog Hamloaf? Will you hug this book when you are done reading it? Yes, yes and YES!
Sounds great, right? We’re giving away a free copy on our Facebook this month, so be sure to enter!
