From the #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Five Feet Apart comes a gripping new
romance, perfect for fans of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens
Emily and her mum were always lucky.
But Emily’s mum’s luck ran out three years ago when she succumbed to cancer and nothing
has felt right since.
Now, the summer before her senior year, things are worse than ever – Emily has wrecked
things with her boyfriend, Matt, and her dad is selling the house she grew up in and giving her
mum’s belongings away. The only person she has to talk to is Blake, a girl she barely knows
since she and her dad moved back to town five seconds ago.
But that’s when Emily finds the list – her mum’s senior year summer bucket list – buried in the
back of her closet. When Blake suggests that Emily take it on as a challenge, the two set off on a
journey to tick each box and help Emily face her fears over losing her connection to her mum.
As she starts to feel closer to her mother, so too does Emily’s bond with Blake deepen into
something she wasn't expecting.
And suddenly Emily must face another fear: accepting the secret part of herself she never got a
chance to share with the person who knew her best.
A captivating, heartfelt love story about learning who you are, and who you love, when the
the person you’ve always shared yourself with is gone.
This is the debut solo book by one of the authors of Five Feet Apart (one of my favorite books EVER) and one of the tenderest, most endearing of her books. I went into this book almost completely blind. I didn't read any reviews and only scanned the synopsis. The thing is, I didn't need to know everything. Ifive-star knew I was going to love this book on the cover and the author alone.
Emily's mother died from cancer three years ago and since then, she hasn't been the same. She's been pushing and pulling her boyfriend until junior prom took their relationship plummeting. Now a social pariah, Emily has to spend the summer alone while her father picks up the pieces of their broken family. Faced with moving from her home, and her father's best friend moving back along with his daughter, Blake, Emily discovers things about herself that she had kept locked away. When she finds her mother's old bucket list, she vows to recreate it as a way to feel closer to her mom.
This is a story of self-discovery. Emily is a girl whose life has been upended because of that, she doesn't take the time to really know herself and come to grips with her sexuality. Blake was an amazing character and exactly what Em needed to continue her journey and opening herself up to new ideas and experiences. Em comes off as a very real character with real fears for a young woman her age.
This is a solid five-star read and perfect for anyone looking for a light YA contemporary read for the summer..
