Down and Dumped: A Heartbroken Dozen


It's already February, and Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I was reminded of that today, when I read the February 2012 edition of "A Bulletin Dozen Booklist" from The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (bccb.lis.illinois.edu).

This bulletin recommends twelve novels (including Other Words for Love--YAY!) and is titled "Down and Dumped: A Heartbroken Dozen." Here's an excerpt:


"So it's almost Valentine's Day and you've just been dumped. 
What's a hopeless romantic like you to do? 
Find yourself a pint of ice cream, a comfy couch, 
and curl up with these fellow heartbroken protagonists. 
After all, misery loves company. . .a good book."
