There is currently 1 available
Sixteen-year-old Min Green writes a letter to Ed Slaterton in which she breaks up with him, documenting their relationship and how items in the accompanying box, from bottle caps to a cookbook, foretell the end.
Reviews & Summaries
The biggest problem is that 'super long' part. Min writes in long sentences, long paragraphs, long winded ideas that should've been half as long. Her incessant references to old movies (that don't exist in the non-book world) don't rate with audiences as well as author Daniel Handler thinks they do.
Also, I have no idea what Ed even looks like. He's a stereotypical basketball playing jock whose most interesting feature is he is actually good at math. Otherwise, he is as interesting as lined paper. Aside from him supposedly being really really ridiculously good looking, there is no real reason for her to fall in love with him. I never got the spark.
I really wanted to like this more than I did.
