Teaser Tuesday: The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading!
To participate all you have to do is:

•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!) 

 Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


                "Love is no game.  People cut their ears off over this stuff.  People jump off the Eiffel Tower and sell all their possessions and move to Alaska to live with the grizzly bears, and then they get eaten and nobody hears them when they scream for help.  That's right.  Falling in love is pretty much the same things as being eaten alive by a grizzly bear." (ARC p3)

                "I was fifteen years old when I died of a broken heart.  No urban myths or legends here.  I'm talking one hundred percent Death by Heartbreak.  No, I didn't kill myself. No, I didn't go on a hunger strike.  I didn't catch pneumonia wandering around in the rain in tears, Sense and Sensibility-style, even though I'm kind of obsessed with Kate Winslet.  Nope, I did it the old-fashioned way.  My heart literally BROKE IN HALF." (ARC p3)


As the wonderful Lauren Oliver says on the front cover, "Gorgeous, funny and heartbreaking." I can't think of three better words to describe this book.  Review coming soon!!!
