Light, easy mystery series. I will probably read the next one in the series at some point this summer. It looks like they could be stand-alone novels though - so you would not have to read them in order.

Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, Maira Kalman (Illst) Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box which contains the reasons why they broke up.

Reading 3/13
Why We Broke Up, a novel written by Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) and illustrated by Maira Kalman..."Handler and Kalman (13 Words) craft a book-length breakup letter from Min (short for Minerva) to her ex-boyfriend, Ed.
