Waiting On Wednesday (5) Instructions For A Broken Heart

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
PhotobucketTitle: Instructions For A Broken Heart
Author: Kim Culbertson
Release Date: May 1st 2011
Publisher: Sourcebooks, Incorporated
Synopsis (from Goodreads): 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.

Why I'm waiting on it: Okay, how promising is that synopsis? And it's set in Italy! I'm totally sold on this book already, and can't wait until May!

What are you waiting on this week? And while you're at the blog, check out my giveaway for Stay by Deb Caletti here.
