The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder June 7

Enter the mixed up life of Penelope Marx, high school has taken her normal world and the social triangle she forms with her two best friends Audrey and Eph and turned it into a world that is confusing and hard to navigate.  Add new kid and new crush Keats to the mix and Penelope’s world really starts to change.  Her story is touching and funny and warm and it was easy to me to feel for her, because I too was (and currently am) a shy girl.  Like Penelope I had a small social circle and unlike Audrey I didn’t want to make mine bigger just because.  Like all of us Penelope finds a new place for herself in the end but I was very happy to make that journey with her.
