The Break-Up Artist by Philip Siegel is a truly amazing book about teenage romance, but in the single friend's point-of-view. Becca is a junior in high school with a rather unusual after school job. She spends her time thinking up new ways to break up couples for her clients. After a cute new guy moves to her school during her eighth grade year, her childhood best friend, Huxley, ditches her for the popular new guy, Steve. Suddenly, their once seemingly unbreakable childhood friendship dissolves into Huxley's newfound social rising.
