About the Book:
The Broken Hearts’ Society of Suite 17C by LeighAnn Kopans
Genre: Upper YA/lower NA contemporary romance
Synopsis: Friends don’t let friends make the same horrible relationship mistakes twice.
Rion, Amy, and Arielle, the three occupants of first-year dorm Harrison Tower’s Suite 17C have never met before the first day of school, but they soon discover they have one thing in common – being on the wrong end of an epically awful breakup. Heartbreak sucks, especially when the girls should have seen the trouble coming from a mile away. But there’s no better time than the beginning of college to take charge of your own love life, and nobody better than a roommate to keep you accountable. Over ice cream and pizza their first week, the girls vow never again to date anyone like the assholes who ripped their hearts out and smeared them across the quad. And that’s how the Broken Hearts’ Society of Suite 17C is born.
Our Review: A quirky fun read, this book is really great. The content of the book is a little heavier for young adult, and I would say it is more New Adult. Kopans writes a refreshingly honest story of heartbreak, friendship and the complications of growing up. One of her character’s is lesbian and she portrayed her beautifully, all her characters are diverse in some way and different from the “typical” cookie cutter ya story line. The story is a multi-person point of view and sometimes it can be a little confusing the constant switching between the three characters, but it doesn’t deter the story. It was a great read that really portrayed the life of being in college and the struggles you face growing up. 4.5/5
Raised on comic books and classic novels, LeighAnn developed an early love of science fiction and great literature. As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen. Her novels are packed full of flights of fancy, first loves, unexpected friendships, and all the other things that make self-discovery stories so fun to tell.
LeighAnn, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio. When she’s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her with her nose buried in her Kindle, obsessing over the latest superhero movie, or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream (again).
