Anatomy of a Single Girl by: Daria Snadowsky

Publication Date: January 2013

Overview: After everything that happened—my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup—jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It’s not that I didn't want to fall in love again, since that’s about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I’d lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing—and devastatingly cute—guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one. 

   The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.
   But I couldn't avoid my future forever. 

My thoughts: Another great start to her love life. I have to say that this shows people how to recover and go on from a break up. I have always wondered what others felt and thought going through this situation,. I know it's a had experience an the author touches on that. And reaches beyond that to help Dom move forward and then BAM!!! She runs smack dab into the person she wants to avoid most. She thinks she can move forward with a friend from last year but finds he's already moved into a relationship. I don't know whether I was relieved or upset. I couldn't be happier for her and the fun she is going to have in college, but really want her to find a great man to stand beside her. And I don't know that she has!

My rating: 4 stars
