An absolutely stunning book for young adults from Daniel Handler, the man who created Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

This is the box, Ed. Inside is everything: two bottle caps, a movie ticket from Greta in the Wild, a note from you, a box of matches, your protractor, Joan’s book, the stolen sugar, a toy truck, those ugly earrings, a comb from the motel, and the rest of it. This is it, Ed. The whole story of why we broke up.

In Why We Broke Up Daniel Handler has created a bittersweet book for young adults with wit and heart and warmth.

    Like a tie at a tag sale, some perfect thing in a crate of nothing, you were just there, uninvited, and now suddenly the party was over and you were all I wanted, the best gift.

    I’m dumping this box on your porch, Ed, but it is you, Ed, who is getting dumped.
