Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culbertson
I read Instructions for a Broken Heart by Kim Culbertson. In the book the main character Jessa goes to Italy on a Drama Club trip. She thought she would be going with her boyfriend, Sean, but before the trip she found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her. Jessa had a hard time seeing Sean with the other girl during the trip. Her friend Carissa wrote her letters for her trip to help her through it. Her instructions were to open two a day. While touring Italy Jessa has feelings of anger, frustration, sorrow and some jealousy. She has her best friend Tyler there to hlep her understand the meaning of the letters and Sean. On the trip she becomes close friends with a guy named Dylan from another school. The four of them have a trip filled with love and drama. I thought this was a really good book filled with lots of excitement. I would recommend this book because it can mak you laugh, it's interesting, and always leaves you wanting more at the end of each chapter!
