Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Freddy is a highschool student with one huge problem: her girlfriend keeps breaking up with her. But that’s not the actual problem, is it? The actual problem is that Freddy is letting this happen, she’s not thinking of herself and letting Laura Dean do as she pleases because Freddy doesn’t value herself. Only Freddy can get out of this cycle of neglect, and only Freddy can fix her problems. 

This book hit home for me, and there are many reasons why. Highschool is already a difficult time to live through, and having public relationship problems just makes everything worse. Honestly, I don’t know how anyone survived highschool. To top it off, Freddy doesn’t value herself as a person. 

That’s why I love this book so much. It isn’t about Freddy getting revenge on her girlfriend, or finding someone who treats her right, this book is about Freddy finding herself and loving herself and valuing herself. This book is a beautiful and painful and honest story that everyone needs to read because everyone should value and respect themselves. I wish I was Freddy’s age when I realized that. 

I’m so glad this book exists.
