Lucy Wrenn has her plan for her boyfriend's return all worked out. He's been away all summer, with very little contact between them and she knows just how she's going to greet him . . . Only it doesn't go at all like she had planned. He breaks up with her.

Lucy has no idea how she's going to make it through sophomore year. Until, that is, Olivia, a senior finds her crying her eyes out in the bathroom and hands her a orange silk scarf to dry her eyes on. So begins Lucy's journey to becoming a Heartbreaker.

All she has to do now is meet a boy, make him fall in love with her, and break his heart. All within seven days.

It all sounds impossibly to Lucy, but Olivia and the two magical girls who are her friends, make it sound possibly possible.

Lucy's definitely in for a crazy, unique adventure she never expected.

The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers makes you feel for the main characters, Lucy, right from the first chapter. Her boyfriend breaking up with her really knocks Lucy down - and it needs to for the story, but it also really leaves readers feeling for Lucy.

One of the female secondary characters I never really got a feel for - I don't know if I just couldn't separate her from the others enough? - but I found the other two unique and thought they had their own personalities and added to Lucy's development.

While there were times that it was hard to understand why Lucy wasn't over Alex yet - especially with all that she was doing - you also have to remember that the novel happens over a really short time period. While I would get frustrated with her at times, I'd have to remember it had only been x number of days, so her feelings, really, made sense.

Lucy's friend Tristan was great fun and a terrific addition to the book. He was one of those kinds of best friend characters that you wish had more of a role to play in the story because they really make all of the scenes they are a part of, that much more fun.

The end of the book was probably my favorite part. I had been worried about how certain things were going to go, but the last third or so of the book draws you in the most.
