If there’s an upside to having your heart broken, it’s this: A broken heart makes you brave.
The first day of sophomore year doesn’t go the way Lucy planned. After a summer apart from her boyfriend, she’s ready to greet him with a special surprise and instead gets a shocking one in return: He’s breaking up with her. Beyond devastated, Lucy has no idea how she’s going to make it through homeroom, let alone the rest of her life.
Enter three stunning girls with the unnatural ability to attract boys and an offer Lucy can’t refuse: They can heal her heart in an instant. And then she’ll be one of them—a member of a sisterhood that is impervious to heartbreak and has access to magic distilled from the tears of brokenhearted boys. But to gain their power, Lucy must get a guy to fall in love with her the old-fashioned way, and then break his heart in the next seven days.
While the sisterhood may need another Heartbreaker, Lucy’s only desire is to get her ex back. But how far is she willing to go, and who is she willing to cross to get what she wants?
Welcome to THE SECRET SISTERHOOD OF HEARTBREAKERS
Ever had your heartbroken and tried to do whatever you could to win that special guy back? When Lucy’s boyfriend, Alex, breaks up with her on the first day of school, she’s in tears. She doesn’t understand why, and he’s not talking. Hiding in the bathroom with tears streaming down her face, Lucy encounters the beautiful Olivia. Olivia loans Lucy her scarf and when Lucy wipes her tears, a message appears telling Lucy to meet at midnight.
Lucy does what any normal teenager does – she goes and meets Olivia and her friends. When she arrives at the spooky mansion, she’s told of an ancient witch craft that Olivia, Liza and Gil practice and all Lucy has to do to join is break a guy’s heart within seven days. Lucy balks at the idea but quickly decides to turn the tables around; her plan – to get Alex to fall in love with her again.
Here’s the thing, Lucy is very shy and Olivia and Co. take upon themselves to bring Lucy out of her shell. They challenge her to do things she’d never think about doing, like get up and improv a song in front of thousands of people. Lucy’s convinced that there is magic behind all the attention she’s receiving when in fact, people are just falling in love with who she is.
Lucy is doing everything she can to win Alex back, but when she finally figures out why he’s broken up with her, she lets him go only to have her best guy friend, Tristan tell her that he loves her. Now faced with the ultimate dilemma, Lucy must decide if she’s going to cross the “friend” line or let Tristan down gently. Either way, someone is going to get hurt.
All is not roses for Lucy as she doubts the Sisterhoods intentions. She finds herself questioning their actions and motives for the hurt that they cause a lot of boys. Lucy has to dig deep within herself to find the true meaning of love and what it means to be part of the Sisterhood.
THE SECRET SISTERHOOD OF HEARTBREAKERS is a whirlwind adventure of a brokenhearted girl. Guaranteed to make you laugh and cry and maybe even say, “what is she thinking?” Available in stores December 27th, but I bet if you pre-order it might just arrive beforehand.
