Brie is the “biggest, cheesiest, sappiest romantic” who believes that everyone will find their perfect someone, so when Jacob, the love of Brie’s life, tells her he doesn’t love her anymore, the news breaks her heart, literally, and she dies. But now that she’s D&G (dead and gone), Brie revisits the living world to discover that her family has begun to unravel and her best friend has been keeping an intimate secret about her boyfriend. Somehow, Brie must handle all of this while navigating through the five steps of grief with the help of Patrick, her mysterious bomber-jacketed guide to the afterlife. But how is she supposed to face the Ever After with a broken heart and no one to call her own?
Majority, if not all must’ve experienced a heartbreak. But Brie Eagan here of The Catastrophic History of You and Me suffered from a literal heartbreak and lost everything to that severe attack: her first love, her family, her life. Pretty interesting plot, right? It pretty much covered the aftermath of Brie’s heartbreak, as she wanders as a lost soul who just kept on finding out secrets that used to surround her. And ooh there’s just so many things to learn. Do we really have to die to know everything we need to know? I hope that stays as fantasy.
And you have to know Patrick’s real purpose… why he always hung around even when Brie kept pushing her away. And watch out for even more shocking twists toward the last few chapters. A lot of characters are hateful and annoying, on Brie’s point of view. That includes Larkin, her former best friend. I haven’t read a love story like this in a long time. This book’s bound to tighten your chest a lot, I think it can be categorized suspense too.
