How You Ruined My Life

How You Ruined My Life

The end of our summer was HUGE: a trip to Ireland, a 13th birthday, and the start of a new school year. It’s only fitting that we explore How You Ruined My Life, a novel about rock bands, rodent love, peanut butter sandwiches, and the fiery rivalry between two very different cousins. We loved every page of it.


How You Ruined My Life by Jeff Strand was the perfect end-of-summer-vacation read, full of weirdness and laughs, and we spent hours reminding each other of its oddball intricacies. Sometimes a silly book really helps grease wheels when returning to the routine of middle school. We definitely recommend this Jeff Strand novel and plan to check out his other work.  

I couldn't find a book trailer for the novel, so here's a full-length Disney movie called You Ruined My Life from 1987, starring Punky Brewster.
