A Fieldguide For Heartbreakers by Kristin Tracey

When best friends Dessy and Veronica arrive in Prague for a prestigious writing workshop, their priorities diverge. Dessy, fragile from a recent breakup, has come to mend her broken heart by honing her craft. Veronica has just dumped her boyfriend and plans to blow off the workshop. She’d rather master a different subject—boys. Veronica gets right to work on her “man-wall”—one paper cutout for every hot-dude she meets— and embarks on her mission to cover a wall of their dorm by summer’s end. At times, Dessy thinks her friend might be a genius. At others, Veronica seems more like an agent of chaos.

As if their love lives weren’t complicated enough, soon a homicidal suitemate is bent on killing Veronica and Dessy, and both girls are hiding secrets that could wreck their friendship. Well, no one ever said breaking hearts was a simple craft....

Dessy was a great main character and she added to this really cute Summer read.

I loved this plot I thought it was different because the characters are way different from each other but still great. Also because they were going to a writing camp in Prague which served as a great backdrop for the story. The plot was fast moving and really good. It never really slowed down.

I thought all the characters were really good and all had unique quality's. Some of Dessy and Veronica's love interests and roommates were really different they they just added to the story and made it way better,

Overall I really everything about the book and thought it was different but still a great summer read.

4.5 out of 5
