    Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

    “There was a boy in her room.  Cath looked up at the number painted on the door, then down at the room assignment in her hand.  Pound Hall, 913.  This was definitely room 913, but maybe it wasn’t Pound Hall – all these dormitories look alike, like public housing towers for the elderly. Maybe Cath should try to catch her dad before he brought up the rest of her boxes. ‘You must be Cather,” the boy said, grinning and holding out his hand.  ‘Cath,’ she said, feeling a panicky jump in her stomach.

So when she wakes up in a bed she doesn’t know, in Mexico, with the hottest guy from school, and they are both wearing what look suspiciously like wedding bands, she freaks out. Especially when she’s meant to be giving her valedictorian…

    Why We Broke Up – Daniel Handler

    “Dear Ed, In a sec you’ll hear a thunk. At your front door, the one nobody uses. It’ll rattle the hinges a bit when it lands, because it’s so weighty and important, a little jangle along with the thunk, and Joan will look up from whatever she’s cooking.” Min and Ed were in love. But when they broke up it broke Min’s heart. A month later she feels its time. Time to return the stuff she collected throughout their relationship, even the stuff Ed doesn’t know about. She gathers it all together and puts it all in a box, then writes the letter. The letter about why they broke up. …
