Welcome to the Museum of Heartbreak.
Well, actually, to Penelope Marx’s personal museum. The one she creates after coming face to face with the devastating, lonely-making butt-kicking phenomenon known as heartbreak.
Heartbreak comes in all forms: There’s Keats, the charmingly handsome new guy who couldn’t be more perfect for her. There’s possibly the worst person in the world, Cherisse, whose mission in life is to make Penelope miserable. There’s Penelope’s increasingly distant best friend Audrey. And then there’s Penelope’s other best friend, the equal-parts-infuriating-and-yet-somehow-amazing Eph, who has been all kinds of confusing lately.
But sometimes the biggest heartbreak of all is learning to let go of that wondrous time before you ever knew things could be broken.

The only thing I didn't like about this book was that I wish it would have been longer. Or I wish that it would have given us an epilogue. Other than those two things this book was beyond adorable. A great beach summer read. It was light but not to light and in the end did teach us a great lesson. That just because something ends doesn't mean that something doesn't begin. You may loose friends as you grow up into different people and people will come and go in your life. And it's those connections that will help you become who your met to be. But don't stop living your life because of it. You might be sad and heartbroken for a time. But don't let it stop you from going after your dreams etc.
This was a wonderful cute story about endings beginnings and everything in-between and well I have to say that Pen is ahead of the rest of us since she learned this lesson at 17. It's one that even now I struggle with.
