Blog Tour: Brief Chronicle of Another Stupid Heartbreak
Welcome to Teachers Who Read for the second stop of the Brief Chronicle of Another Stupid Heartbreak blog tour! I am so excited to host today because my 8 graders devour Adi Alsaid's books! This novel, like his others, was the perfect will-they-or-won't-they story. Releases today!
- Characters: The best aspect of this book was its characters. That inner turmoil that bubbles up as you're getting ready to leave high school behind was captured perfectly. Lu knows that most high school romances don't last. But she just can't let her ex go. What if they're better off friends? What if he's the one, but she doesn't fight for him? Navigating these questions was all too familiar! As much as I liked hearing Lu's inner thoughts, perhaps my favorite character was Lu's best friend Pete, who offers no-so-tactful advice about Lu's love life.
- Setting: This is the perfect time of year for this book. As Lu follows Cal and Iris, she goes on adventures around NYC. If you have a senior in your life who's still trying to figure out what to do at the end of the year, this book is for them.
This was a quick and fun read perfect for the start of summer!
