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
- What is on your nightstand?
A massive pile of books, my cellphone, a bottle of water, and my wedding ring.
- What author would you totally fan?
Nina LaCour. I would NOT play it cool.
- What makes you cringe?
People being rude to waitstaff/servers. It is SUCH a difficult and tiring job, and a lot of variables are completely out of their control. A little kindness can go a long way.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
A little of both. I think there’s some real freedom and “going with the flow” in plotting and figuring out a story. Just because I make an outline and write out all the major beats of a story doesn’t mean I don’t take a backseat and let the characters tell me where to go. I’m a go with the flow plotter!
- Is there a word you love to use?
I recently started a podcast with my childhood best friend and I APPARENTLY love to say “for sure, for sure.” So, I’m not sure that counts, but I say it an awful lot.
