Publisher's Summary

Meet June Parker. She works for L.A. Rideshare, adores her rent-stabilized apartment in Santa Monica, and struggles with losing a few pesky pounds.

But June's life is about to change.

After a dark turn of events involving Weight Watchers, a chili recipe, and a car accident in which her passenger, Marissa, dies, June finds herself in possession of a list Marissa has written, "20 Things to Do By My 25th Birthday". Even though they barely knew each other, June is compelled by both guilt and a desire to set things right and finish the list for Marissa.

The tasks before her range from inspiring (Run a 5K), to daring (Go braless), to near-impossible (Change someone's life), and as June races to achieve each goal before the deadline, she learns more about her own life than she ever bargained for.

Funny, engaging, and heartwarming, The Next Thing on My List features a loveable, relatable heroine and a story with plenty of humor and heart.

    "Worth the read! Not spectacular."

    I enjoyed this book. It was better than I expected, but less than what I hoped for. It's worth the read. It's somewhere between light and thoughtful. I recommend it, but it won't rock your socks off.

    "Light and funny!"

    Easy listen and parts of the book were funny. I think it would have been better if the narrator hadn't sounded like she was reading the book at times.

    "Very Enjoyable! Interesting storyline."

    This was a very entertaining book with an interesting storyline. I love the illustration of how a stranger can change your life - for the better.

    "The Next Thing on My List (Unabridged)"

    This was an excellent book! I am 25 and I listened to it with my mother who is 58 when we went on a road trip together. We both thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a heartfelt easy listen that made us laugh out loud sometimes!
    **I would also give this book a PG-13 rating for the cursing and sex talk.

    "Wonderful Book!"

    This was a great 'feel good' book. You really relate with the characters and are really pulling for her to find love and complete the list. Excellent read!!

    "Great Story"

    This was a wonderful idea for a story! It dealt with a very serious subject matter but with heart and a surprising positive overall feel!

    "Great story"

    OK, well, I have to say I had the same idea for a book! But this book was really well written. Charming and funny, and I found myself identifying with the main character and the girl she is finishing the list for (Marissa). I definitely thought about what my list would look like. A great, great book! I didn't get bored once.
