The Lovereading4Kids comment

May 2016 Book of the Month A new book from Cathy Cassidy is always a treat, and her many fans are going to love The Broken Heart Club. Cathy Cassidy has a gift for capturing the turbulent emotions of young adolescents, those who are no longer children, yet not very adult, and writes about them with extraordinary warmth and sensitivity. It’s a time when friendships, even long established ones, can come under pressure, as happens in this book. Andie, Eden, Ryan, Tasha and Hasmita were best friends forever, but at the end of year six something happened to cause a massive break up between Eden and Ryan. Two years on, they want to reform their group. The friendships and emotions described will be completely familiar to readers, who will be entranced by this story from the very first page. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Broken Heart Club by Cathy Cassidy

Andie, Eden, Ryan, Tasha and Hasmita love being part of the Heart Club. They've promised to stay best friends forever and nothing can tear them apart. But sometimes things happen that you couldn't ever have expected and forever might not be as long as you think. Now, two years later, Eden and Ryan are haunted by memories of the past.

Can they find a way to bring the club back together or is it too late to mend a broken heart? A gorgeous new story from the bestselling author of The Chocolate Box Girls series.
