Sarah Mlynowski, NYT bestselling author."Maybe it's time to expand your list of literary crushes to include someone other than Augustus Waters." MTV.com"This is one of the most literary teen books I've read for a long time - up there with John Green - and it's a delight to read… the ending absolutely blew me away, being unpredictable, powerful, and altogether fantastic."

Intelligent, effortless and wonderfully weird, she is unlike anyone Ezra's ever met before. Together they discover flash mobs, buried treasure, secret movie screenings and a poodle with a questionable history. But as Ezra dives into new friendships and new love, he is forced to ask: if you've managed to survive disaster, what happens when it strikes again?Robyn Schneider's Severed Heads, Broken Hearts is a lyrical, witty and heart-wrenching novel about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings.

This book isn't normally something I would read, but I ended up really liking it. I tend to dislike Young Adult novels, so I avoid them just to spare myself the annoyance.
