Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning.... Welcome to forever. 

BRIE'S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn't love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally. 

But now that she's D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there's Patrick, Brie's mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after. 
With Patrick's help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she's ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

Ever since I saw this book around the blogosphere I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. A girl dying of a broken heart (literally!!!!!!). TCHoYaM was everything I wanted and more.

Brie was a wonderful protagonist. She was spunky, saracastic and witty; everything I love in a main character. I saw a lot of parallels between myself at sixteeen and Brie which made her really easy to relate to.

Patrick melted my heart. Really. Enough said.

There were so many twists and turns. The story definitely didn't go in the direction I expected which made the reading experience that much more enjoyable!

The music references were incredible. Such fun!

Buy it. Read it. Love it. It is so great. Be prepared with tissues as I cried CONSTANTLY (not quite, but very nearly)!
