The Buenos Aires Broken Hearts Club by Jessica Morrison

At the age of seventeen, Cassie Moore planned her life. On a color-coded spreadsheet, she broke her life into eight manageable ten year stages that were broken down further by five year major goals. Cassie has followed her plan religiously for the past 11 years, never straying from her path. But, in one day, Cassie’s life is turned upside down. She loses her job and she comes home to find her fiancĂ©e in bed with his ex-girlfriend…so not in her plan.

In a drunken stupor, Cassie decides she needs time off from her plan, six months, in fact, and she books herself a flight to Buenos Aires. Here she spends the next six months learning Spanish, meeting new people, and finding herself.

The Buenos Aires Broken Hearts Club is an uplifting story of a woman who must let go of everything she has believed in for years to rebuild her life around the theory that sometimes life cannot be planned.
