Beez: The catastrophic history of you and me 
Jess Rothenberg

Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning.... Welcome to forever. 

BRIE'S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn't love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally. 

But now that she's D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there's Patrick, Brie's mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after. 

With Patrick's help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she's ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

Aah. I love books like these. They make you laugh, smile, giggle and burst up any moment. Before even telling you about this book, i shall say this, You have to read this book(this goes for Raven as well). 

When i was reading this book, i could not put it down. I was glued to the screen. A screen shot of a page is even my current wallpaper(one of Patrick's Latin phrases). This book is the story of what happens to Brie(yes the cheese) after she dies. And let me tell you if life after death is that fun, then i cant wait to die.

So when Brie dies(which she totally doesn't want to because of the afore mentioned perfect life) she starts to undergo the 5 stages of grief(which, thank you Patrick, i had totally forgotten). But wait i missed a very important point here: how did Brie die? By a broken heart. Literally and figuratively. When her boyfriend breaks her heart, the heart in her body literally cracks. And then she dies.

While watching her own memorial service, her 3 best friends sing her a beautiful song(btw all chapter names are song names; i know, so cool) and her little brother says a few lines and Brie is shouting at them to listen to her but nobody can hear her and even though she cries Noo, they bury her, and so begins the next part of her story: after life.

A little slice of heaven(a pizza place) turns out to be heaven for Brie. Over there she meets Patrick, guy from the 70's, with a motorcycle jacket and charm that Brie is st first immune to. Then it begins. Let me spill an awesome thing of heaven, you can wish for absolutely anything and BAM you have it. The first stagge id denial. In denial Brie knows whats happened but refuses to acknowledge it and enjoys all the pleasures of heaven. 

Then the next stage is Anger, which is the best stage. Brie is angry at Jacob who broke her heart. Then when she drops on earth to pay him a visit she discovers a string of things that get her more angrier and makes her do some totally mad things. Now i'd elaborate but then it would spoil the book.

It is your job to figure out what happens next but let me warn you what you think happens next does not happen next. There is a twist in the end and makes the book exactly how is sounds, whirl wind, and super fun ride.

My favorite character: without any doubt Patrick. I love Patrick. I love his oozing charm. I love the way he calls Brie nick name(cheeseburger, Angel, Lil Lady, and my fav cheeto). I love his "motorcycle jacket" which Brie makes fun of the entire time. I love how he loves her and i love how he makes me laugh. Patrick is an amazing character. I feel Brie does kind of an injustice to him. But then Brie has her own life(or unlife) to figure out. And i thought it was utterly stupid he went to that island(don't remember the name, sorry i'm suffering from short term memory loss) to die die and gives up on Brie when hes been waiting quite a lot of time.

Cheesy, romantic, stupid, what not to read? 
Pick it up now folks, its time for a visit to the other side.

Lots of love and pizza(the kind you get in heaven)
