Can 18 things save a life? Olga Gay Worontzoff thinks her biggest problems are an awful name (after her grandmother's of course) and not attending prom with Conner, her best friend and secret crush since kindergarten. Then Conner is killed in a freak boating accident and Olga feels responsible. When she downs an entire bottle of pills to deal with the emotional pain, her parents force her into counseling. There, her therapist writes a prescription in the form of a life list titled 18 Things.
"Everything but the last hour"
Olga Gay Worontzoff left the Underworld for her final year of high school anxious for things to return to normal, but fate has other plans. The new hottie at school reads her thoughts but nobody else's. Her best friend wakes up from his coma acting like a completely different person. Caught in a world that's a mix of familiar and supernatural, she must confront what she will - or won't - do to bring him back and stare down her own perceived inadequacies to face a couple of tenacious demons, figurative and literal.
