Book Watch: Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culbertson.

Posted March 18, 2011 by Rowena in Promotions | 1 Comment

Three days before her drama club’s trip to Italy, Jessa Gardner discovers her boyfriend in the costume barn with another girl. Jessa is left with a care package from her best friend titled “Top Twenty Reasons He’s a Slimy Jerk Bastard,” instructing her to do one un-Jessa-like thing each day of the trip. At turns hilarious and heartwrenching, Instructions for a Broken Heart paints a magical Italy in which Jessa learns she must figure out life-and romance-for herself.

This book kind of reminds me of 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson and while I enjoyed that book, it wasn’t a favorite of mine mostly because I was so furious with the Aunt but this book looks like it’d be a fun way to tour Italy vicariously through Jessa and I’m always down for stuff like that. This book comes out on May 1, 2011 so mark your calendars, I’m sure this one will be a definite treat!

..and that’s your scoop!
