The Rules vs. the Rules.
The you-used-to-be-afraid-to-die-alone version: Never accept a date after Wednesday.
The you-can-make-it-without-the-bastard version: Leave small mementos behind (toothbrush, favorite peanut butter) so he never gets over you.
If the latter sounds like a page from your book, you might want to check out more of Katherine Taylor’s Rules for Saying Goodbye.
With standards no less exacting than yours, the debut author presents the relatable Katherine, a well-educated, fun-loving, aspiring writer who eschews her silver spoon in favor of starving artistry (well, she does have a rent-controlled apartment in New York City).
In each phase of her life — boarding school in New England, bartending in New York, living abroad — she takes one step forward and two back. And she simply refuses to settle.
Which is always a good rule of thumb.
