When Lucy’s boyfriend, Alex, breaks up with her on the first day of school after a summer apart, Lucy is heartbroken. She can’t understand what went wrong and is determined to win him back. A mysterious trio of girls offers her a solution: break someone’s heart within seven days, and become part of the magical Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers, never suffering from a broken heart again. How far will Lucy go to get what she wants?

Unfortunately, this book wasn’t nearly as intriguing as its premise had me hoping. Alex seems like a jerk right from the beginning and not worth fighting for. And of course, it’s glaringly obvious whose heart Lucy will break. Although Lucy finds happiness at the end of the novel, the reader is left with an icky feeling over the turn of events in the final few chapters. Not a very satisfying read.
