What I Want in My Mailbox...{12}

What I want in my mailbox is my version of Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.
This week I want Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman  in my mailbox!
I'm telling you why we broke up, Ed. I'm writing it in this letter, the whole truth of why it happened.

Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they broke up. Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend, will be dumped.

I read a fourteen page preview of Why We Broke Up and now I reallyreallyreallyreallysuperduper want it. I love the writing style and voice and illustrations already. I love everything about it already.

Why We Broke Up will be released January 2, 2012.

What are you waiting for?
