My Heart & Other Breakables: How I lost my mum, found my dad, and made friends with catastrophe

21,000+ Reviews has the highest-rated customer service of any bookstore in the world


A hilarious and deeply moving diary novel from bestselling author Alex Barclay – this might just be the funniest book ever to make you cry your eyes out.

This is the diary of me, Ellery Brown, aged fifteen and a half. I’m supposed to be recording my feelings about my mum, since she died, so why do I keep thinking about who my dad might be instead? Until now, I’ve had literally NO IDEA who my dad is.

My best friend Meg and I have narrowed it down to three authors my mum knew. (She was an author too.) But as they’re all on different CONTINENTS, we’re going to need fake IDs, passports, plane tickets and to get away from my self-obsessed grandmother . . . One thing’s for sure: this year is going to be INTERESTING!
