A delightful interactive roadmap for getting over a broken heart, with quirky illustrations, song lyrics that totally get it, recipes for eating your feelings, the unique comfort of making lists, and much more

A broken heart can feel like the end of the world, but bestselling author and illustrator Amalia Andrade knows this simply isn’t true. Change is not a defeat or a surrender but a promise. Because if the “love of your life” doesn’t work out, there is always a chance for something new—a new love, or a new life.

When Amalia was faced with her own heartbreak, she knew she couldn’t let herself get lost in despair. With her sunshiny outlook, electrifying energy, and unique sense of humor, she constructed the ultimate first aid kit: an interactive guide to getting over someone through reflections, recipes, and lots of ingenious ideas for transforming a negative experience into a liberating one.

In these pages, you’ll find the secret code for interpreting text message read receipts, loving odes to Beyoncé, the ideal playlist for crying in the shower, and much, much more. You Always Change the Love of Your Life reveals the secret to mending your heart and maybe even opening it up again: in love and in lovelessness, we are never alone.

INTERNATIONAL HIT: Since its original publication in the author’s native Colombia in 2015, the book has sold more than 200,000 copies in Spanish language markets around the world and has been published in Italian, Portuguese, German, and Polish.

FANTASTIC AUTHOR: Amalia has a highly engaged social media following (100K Instagram + Twitter), is an Apple brand partner, speaks fluent English, and is incredibly outgoing and frequently holds standing-room-only events in Mexico and South America.

FUN AESTHETIC: The book’s style of bold hand-lettering and quirky line drawings is fun and eye-catching, and reminiscent of hugely popular author-illustrators like Adam J. Kurtz (Things Are What You Make of Them) and Keri Smith (Wreck This Journal).

Amalia Andrade was born in Cali, Colombia in 1986. She studied literature at Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogotá. She’s been drawing forever. She’s written for several magazines in both Colombia and the United States. She believes strongly in the power of keeping a diary. When she grows up she want to be a mix between Sylvia Plath and Tina Fey. She lives in Bogotá with her cats.

“Accessible and easygoing… After reading, Andrade feels like one of your friends, but not like she’s got it all figured out…. It’s easy to believe that she knows what true heartbreak feels like, and that she can truly empathize…. You Always Change will probably help you through your current or next breakup, if only by knowing someone else shares your pain.”
Lambda Literary

“If you are looking for a refreshing take on relationships, this may be the book for you.”
She Reads

“Andrade’s charming, earnest writing style and relatable descriptions of her own relationship grieving process are uniquely comforting and somehow joyous.”
