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 Agenda. 

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 person you’ve always shared yourself with is gone.

Praise for THE LUCKY LIST:

"A countdown to finishing the list before a class trip keeps the pacing solid, and an entertaining unraveling of connections to her parents’ pasts adds nice depth. Told in Emily’s first-person narration, the breezy tale explores the theme of learning to live life without holding back, as Emily both questions her sexuality and learns to heal from her grief....A truly charming summer romp." -- Kirkus Reviews

I was SO excited when I saw this book tour come around because I ADORED Five Feet Apart and simply couldn't wait to see what was in store for us.  

Emily was a dear, but struggling so, so hard against, life, against, death, against her very sense of self, and all that fighting has wrung her life plum dry.  Her friends don't know what to say or do.  Her father can't carry on a conversation anytime his wife/her mother is mentioned.  To put it simply, her life is spiraling out of control...at least it was until Blake came along.  She's the ray of sunshine on a stormy cloud filled day.  She's the one you'd want to choose for your ride or die.  She's the new kid in town, but also a blast from the past, and while making waves in little ole Huckabee was never her intent, you can't fly under the radar when you come to a small town.  Thing is, outside all the exterior pluses, she's got a heart of gold, and it seems she's the one person that will not only listen to Emily, but wants to spend time with her and get her back out there, LIVING again.  But sometimes relationships are bigger than they at first seem, and when they grow out of our control, revealing things we weren't certain were hidden in the first place...you can get spooked, start making the wrong decisions, and ultimately break your own heart.  Let's hope that Emily is made of stronger stuff, and if by chance she's not, that she at least can pick up the pieces to start again.

Like I said, I really enjoyed this one from start to finish.  Meeting Emily in her lost state was refreshingly real.  Seeing her navigate life and times after a parent passes was hard, but you could see her honestly trying to struggle through.  The unintentional break from her crew wasn't timely, but it did afford her the chance to realign expectations, discover things that were there the whole time, and reconnect with not only her self, but her mom, believe it or not.  The whole list concept was a great way to have an impartial catalyst to get things moving, and the bond that it built, or rather solidified between mother and daughter, while bringing everyone else together, was pure magic.
