The life list: a novel
Bantam Books Trade Paperbacks,
INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER In this utterly charming debut--perfect for fans of Cecelia Ahern's P.S., I Love You and Allison Winn Scotch's Time of My Life --one woman sets out to complete her old list of childhood goals, and finds that her lifelong dreams lead her down a path she never expects. nbsp; 1. Go to Paris 2. Have a baby, maybe two 3. Fall in love nbsp; Brett Bohlinger seems to have it all: a plum job, a spacious loft, an irresistibly handsome boyfriend. All in all, a charmed life. That is, until her beloved mother passes away, leaving behind a will with one big stipulation: In order to receive her inheritance, Brett must first complete the life list of goals she'd written when she was a naïve girl of fourteen. Grief-stricken, Brett can barely make sense of her mother's decision--her childhood dreams don't resemble her ambitions at age thirty-four in the slightest. Some seem impossible. How can she possibly have a relationship with a father who died seven years ago? Other goals (Be an awesome teacher!) would require her to reinvent her entire future. As Brett reluctantly embarks on a perplexing journey in search of her adolescent dreams, one thing becomes clear. Sometimes life's sweetest gifts can be found in the most unexpected places.
