    As a fan of the t.v. show ?Doogie Hoswer?, I was excited to read this book. Saira is an Oncologist working with children that have cancer. Not going to lie, this was a tough subject for me to read at times. I had a good friend that passed away from cancer and reading about kids wit...

    I probably should've DNF'd this. Saira is pretty immature and makes a lot of mistakes. Absolutely realistic for a sixteen year, but it made it hard to believe she was a doctor, especially since it seems like we didn't get to see enough of her actually BEING a doctor. I also didn't quit...

    An interesting story about Saira, a 16 year old genius, who has finished medical school and is working in an oncology ward. She is a passionate worker and aims to give her patients the best care she can, even if it means breaking rules and disobeying orders from her superiors. She has ...

    I enjoyed Sona Charaipotra?s Symptoms of a Heartbreak so much! I was initially drawn to the cover. Medical contemporary? Yes. Rom-com? Yes. And when I was introduced to Saira? I mean, the first few pages of her trying to get to work on time had me laughing. I knew I was going to enjo...

    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an e-arc in exchange for an honest review. This adorable book comes out on Tuesday and I needed to post something about it. So the premise of Symptoms of a Heartbreak is this: Saira Sehgal is sixteen and just starting her first job a...

    This was SO FUN and SAD and RICH. I loved this story of 2019's own Indian Doogie Howser. Also, I am now incredibly hungry because there were pages and pages of descriptions of homemade Indian food. ...

    This is another book that proves to me that I am so over YA. There was a time a place for these books in my life, unfortunately in recent, I don?t seem to care. Good premise, just totally does not fit what I want to read, it seemed predictable in my opinion. ...

    Sweet and light while also covering tough topics. I?m the girl in the bookstore who sees the word ?cancer? on a book cover and drops it like the book itself has the plague. SYMPTOMS, however isn?t out to break hearts and make readers cry ? instead it?s allowing us a glimpse...

    (Disclaimer: I received this book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Saira is one of those YA characters that feels so genuine and relatable. While not everyone can relate to being a girl genius (I'm so far from that), Symptoms of a Heart...

    I loved this emotional medical contemporary. I felt so invested in all of the cases. Being a 16 year old prodigy definitely has it interesting situations. The food infused in the writing of this book had me wanting to cook and eat the entire time. This is an emotional adorable read and...

    This book took me a little while to get into, but it was fun, thoughtful, and clever. I loved that Saira was the youngest doctor at her hospital and could hold her own against the other doctors, but some of her decisions were so frustrating! I could understand why they needed to happen...

    Saira (pronounced Sigh-ra) is the world's youngest MD at the age of 16 and she is about to embark on her next journey; an internship in pediatric oncology. Not only is this tremendous pressure on its own, the hospital she will be working at is the same one she visited daily to be by he...

    I expected a cutesy-wutesy contemporary but you won't find that here. Real world drama lies in these pages, and one character I wanted to smack silly. I was a little lost on some of the language and cultural references that weren't explained well if at all. It felt unnecessarily long w...

    FACT: I watched Doogie Howser, when the episodes originally aired, and I was totally fascinated with his trials and tribulations as he attempted to navigate the adult world as a teen. My love of Dr. Doogie drove my desire to read Symptoms of a Heartbreak, and I throughly enjoyed the...

    I have mixed feelings about this book and continue going back and forth between three and four stars. The story line was good, and the author did an amazing job, especially as a debut novel, but I did have a hard time with some continuity issues. Because I received an ARC, perhaps thes...

    Actual Rating 4.5 Symptoms of a Heartbreak by Sona Charaipotra is a charming and beautifully touching story. It?s engrossing and bittersweet, and as much as it hurt my heart, I could not stop reading. There are so many things to love about this wonderful book and by the end, I ca...

    This book was wonderful! I didn?t want to put it to down. I loved the cultural elements woven into the Saira?s story because it?s such a key part to who she is. I was nervous to read this when I found out the main character works for an oncology unit, which I try to stay away fro...
