Help Needed from YA readers

I am doing a guest post for another blog and I need help brainstorming. 

I am looking for memorable breakups in YA books?  It can be from a series, or a stand alone.  You know the ones that leave you silently sobbing for the heroine.  I have a few, but could use a few more.  Thanks in advance.

How about when Edward temporaily dumps Bella in the 2nd Twilight book? Besides that.. I can't think of any, sorry, I don't read YA much anymore..

Burned by Ellen Hopkins (not really a break-up, but a loss none the less)
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks (I know, I'm sorry)

That's all I've got right now. I hope it helps!

I don,t know if it really counts for a break-up but Dimitri and Rose really made me cry in Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy book 3)

Umm... what about the two characters in Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles? It's a series, so we don't know if we get back together or not, but he just leaves at the end of the book. Will that count?

How about An Abundance of Katherines by John Greene. Collin dated and subsequently broke-up with 13 Katherines. It's very funny, though kinda sad in a why-do-you-keep-doing-this-to-yourself kinda way.

Hmmm...

Well, I did feel badly for Bella in New Moon. She took is pretty bad as well so I think this would count.

I Know It's Over although it's from a male perspective so no heroine. :(

The Scribbler Of Dreams. Plus it's forbidden love.

I agree with Perfect Chemistry as well as Leaving Paradise, This Lullaby and also The Book Of Luke.

Ron and Lavender (I think that's her name) in the Harry Potter series.
