About the Book:
Already a worldwide success in mass market and trade paperback formats, Susan Mallery’s newest 
hardcover is an emotional, witty, and heartfelt story about two best friends who are determined to help 
one another shake things up and live life to the fullest...only to discover that possibilities are 
everywhere--especially in the most unexpected of places.

Ellen and Unity have been best friends basically since birth, but they couldn’t be more different. Unity 
married her childhood sweetheart just after high school and became an Army wife, moving from base
to base…until her husband's shocking death in the line of duty leaves her a widow. Grief-stricken, it’s 
time for Unity to come back home to Ellen—the only person she can trust to help her rebuild her life.
 But Ellen has troubles of her own. Boys never seemed to notice Ellen…until one got her pregnant in 
high school and disappeared. Her son is now 17 and she’s wondering what to do with herself now that 
he’s heading off to college and he's literally her entire world.

But now that Ellen and Unity are reunited, they’re done with their stale lives. It’s time to shake things 
up and start living again, knowing that they'll always have one another to lean on. So they create a list 
of challenges they have to accomplish--everything from getting a tattoo to skydiving to staying out all
 night. And whoever completes the most challenges is the winner. But with new adventures and love
 just around the corner, there’s no such thing as losing…


Whenever Susan Mallery has a new book, it's always on my reading list! Her books are always like a
comfort read to me! I loved the Pacific Northwest setting, and my favorite character was definitely Ellen!
Susan always puts such real, likable characters in her stories, which I think is why I love them so much! This
book is no exception! Wile it wasn't my favorite Mallery read, I still enjoyed it!

I loved their friendship "bucket list" and all their adventures. This book was a really fun read--perfect for an
afternoon in the hammock, which is where I read the entirety of this book! I love Mallery's writing style--she
hooks you in from the beginning and it's so easy to keep turning the pages! It you're in the mood for a
sweet, "chick lit" style book to escape to this summer, this one is perfect!
