Five awesome YA breakup books

One title on Melissa Albert's list of five awesome Young Adult breakup books, as shared on the B & N Teen Blog:
The Break-Up Artist, by Philip Siegel

After watching her sister’s emotional destruction by a fiancĂ© who ditched her on their wedding day, Becca sees love for what it is: a destructive force that compromises people’s happiness and identity before it tears them apart. She re-creates herself as an anonymous vigilante “breakup artist” who separates couples for cash—but it still doesn’t stop her from embarking on an ill-advised love story of her own. Friendships are tested, priorities realigned, and breakups had in spades.
