Breaking Up by Aimee Friedman

Title: Breaking Up
Author: Aimee Friedman
Art by: Christine Norrie
ISBN: 9780439748674
Publisher: Graphix, Scholastic

"There's a fine line between a friend and an enemy. One minute there's all this TRUST, and LAUGHTER, and LOVE. And the next minute... there's HURT. And CRUELTY. And BETRAYAL.

Meet Chloe Sacks: Thoughtful, artistic, and a junior at Georgia O'Keeffe School for the Arts, nicknamed 'Fashion High' for its trendy student body. Along with her best friends, Erika, Isabel, and MacKenzie, she's looking forward to a year of romance, parties, and adventure.

And it is an eventful year... but not in the way she expected. Falling in love turns out to be a complete disaster. And friendship - well, friendship is the hardest thing of all to keep."

I honestly picked up this graphic novel because it was put on the NYC Summer Reading list of suggested books. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have touched it. The book isn't quite in my genre - I do love graphics, but they're more the gritty or comic related ones.

This is very much a girly/chick lit story. Friends getting mad at friends... why, who, how.. etc. Just kinda the ins and outs of high school for a group of girls. Their loves, their hates, and so on. It's about popularity, dating, and clothes... basically. So yeah. It's kinda shallow, but that's the kinda book it's meant to be.
I could only really find one review online if you'd like to take a look. Here There are others, but they are attached to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and others.
