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?

The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers is a light and fun read that also has meaningful messages hidden within. I enjoyed reading about Lucy, the main character, and relating to her in a lot of ways. For one, her heart was broken. Haven't we all been there? Where we haven't been, but probably wish we had, is finding a group of girls who can mend a broken heart with magic! To join the sisterhood Lucy basically has to go out and break a boy's heart, and then collect his tear. Even though that's what the group of girls' plan is, it's not entirely Lucy's plan. Lucy wants the boy who broke her heart back and she plans on using the tips and tricks the girls are teaching her. Only, things don't always go according to plan when magic is involved. Am I right?

So, speaking of magic, with that aside there are some great self-esteem boosters in this book. I know this would be such a great read for young adults, especially girls who are just starting to "date" or girls who need a confidence kick. I am excited to start the next book in the series, "The Book Of Love" and see what the sisterhood of heartbreakers have been up to! So, watch out for that review soon!
