I am not much for self help books. I like to wallow in my own misery. A little pity party now and then is good for what ails you. However, this book might have come in handy when I was MUCH younger. I think I will put this one on a shelf since the two resident teens are still pretty much of the "boys are stupid; throw rocks at them" variety. This books likens the stages to getting over being dumped to the stages of dealing with death and dying. The chapters, then, are entitled: denial, anger, depression, bargaining, and acceptance. Concrete suggestions for dealing with each stage, music to play: it is all here to help with the healing.
This might make a good selection for an all-girls book club.
