First rule of breakups: There’s no going back.
For three years, seventeen-year-old Grace Evers has regretted breaking up with Sage Castle.
That day, she lost her boyfriend and best friend. And let's be honest, it's impossible to just be friends with the one person who gets you, faults and all, and loved you anyway. It's impossible not to think about how it felt to be held by him, or the way he looked right before he was about to kiss you with the most perfectly yummy kiss goodnight.
And now that things are over between them, they've become strangers to one another. Sage won’t even look at Grace, let alone talk to her!
Breakup life sucks and Grace is utterly miserable, doing whatever she can to ease the pain of losing Sage. She's spent the better part of high school pretending to be something she’s not and hanging out with people who probably wouldn't notice if she wasn't there. Crappy dates, backstabbing friends, and Sage's cold shoulder have taken their toll.
So when her parents propose going away to their house on Lake Michigan for the summer, Grace is thrilled. No more massively bad dates with horrible kissers or lunch with frienemies. Just three months of swimming, hiking, and relaxing before senior year starts.
But when Grace learns Sage and his family will be joining them, she readies herself for a totally awkward family vacation of disastrous proportions. How can it be anything but awful if Sage won't even acknowledge she exists?
This is it, Grace's last chance to get Sage back and unbreakup.
I love all Rebekah's stories because it's all about embracing your inner nerd and be proud of it, of who you are, and How To Unbreakup was no different.
Grace and Sage were best friends. Their families were close and their got closer when they started dating. However, when they broke up things changed.
Do you know when you start overthinking and dissecting your relationship with someone because of what others say? Well, that's what the main character goes through. At least, that's the impression I got after reading the first chapters of the book. And it's completely okay to have doubts about who you are and your relationship. Even more when you are thirteen.
That's one of the main reasons you really get to understand the main character and like her. She's good, nerdy, funny and a fully teen with her awkwardness and with her embarrassment, trying to find herself while amending her past errors. I really liked her and felt for her all throughout the story because I don't think she deserved such treatment from Sage. I know she broke his heart, but come on, dude, you broke my reading heart a bit with your attitude. Despite this, as any other character in a sweet YA romance, Sage ends up winning your heart no matter what he did at the beginning or throughout the book.
I liked this story because it's a prove that it's okay to make mistakes, but the wiser part of making them is recognizing them and trying to amend them. Also, I loved the main characters' decision of trying to find herself and seeing happen throughout the whole story.
Overall, this is story is one of those YA sweet romances that you need to read from time to time. And what better read than this, because everyone's who's been dumped or has dumped someone and regretted it might have wondered what it would be to unbreakup. Well, you can get to see how that all played out for Sage and Grace if you chose to read Rebekah's new story.
