The Heartbreak Messenger by Alexander Vance

This is a book you are likely to find at a middle school book fair. Quentin likes to help his friends, and so when he is offered $20 for delivering a break-up message, he earns the nickname "The Heartbreak Messenger." He doesn't think that it's that bad, just have to see girls cry, no big deal, right? Well, it is when they get mad and take it out on Quentin! He soon finds out that personal life can get in the way of being a messenger, and lying to his friends is hard. He learns that being in a relationship is harder than it seems.

This book was okay. The plot was not well developed, and it was boring. It's kind of the same, and there isn't a climax, or anything. To tell you the truth, this book could be used as a bedtime story! Some of the time a little more information could be told, and more detail about his parents would be helpful. Quentin's mom could have been a little more responsive, and it disappointed me when it wasn't eventful.

However, there are some positives. The book definitely has its laugh-out-loud moments, and you can kind of relate to him in some ways, and it is a book that was worth my time to read, but I can't say that it will be a book that I would be reading over and over.

I do recommend reading it, but don't buy it, because it's not worth owning.
