Publisher's Summary

What do you do when you've fallen for your best friend? Funny and romantic, this effervescent story about family, friendship, and finding yourself is perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han.

Seventeen-year-old Abby Turner's summer isn't going the way she'd planned. She has a not-so-secret but definitely unrequited crush on her best friend, Cooper. She hasn't been able to manage her mother's growing issues with anxiety. And now she's been rejected from an art show because her work "has no heart". So when she gets another opportunity to show her paintings, Abby isn't going to take any chances.

Which is where the list comes in.

Abby gives herself one month to do 10 things, ranging from face a fear (three) to learn a stranger's story (five) to fall in love (eight). She knows that if she can complete the list, she'll become the kind of artist she's always dreamed of being.

But as the deadline approaches, Abby realizes that getting through the list isn't as straightforward as it seems...and that maybe - just maybe - she can't change her art if she isn't first willing to change herself.

Unrequited love sucks !!

I know I gave this book a very low rating but it doesn't have to do with anything about the writing or the story .. it is just me and my feeling toward the issue presented in the story .. I absolutely HATED Cooper, he was ticking on my nerves the entire book and I really wanted someone else to make an appearance to save Abby from this hell .. I love Kasie West writing style and she have that ability to make memorable moments that you remember even after you finish the book .. I say she handled the issue of unrequited love in a very accurate and realistic way but I was so frustrated through out the book, I liked the relationship between Abby and her family and her sarcastic nature, she was a very good protagonist, you can read it if you like but prepare yourself for an emotional roller coaster

The narration was nice enough .. not much variety of voices but it was fine and I can see a room for improvement

Put this one on your list!

This one has been on my “LIST” for sometime now. I am upset at myself for letting it sit there for this long. I think the only thing I could say that is bad about this one is the kids are too perfect and I am jealous of them ughhh! There is way too much to like about this audiobook. Loveable characters, great story flow and a narrator that absolutely knocks it out of the park. This was my second venture into the YA Romance genre and I think I am slowly being sucked in. I really liked every aspect of this one. From the very start you love the characters, even when you scream at them for being so oblivious!! Throughout the entire story it is filled with creativeness, sarcasm and a whole lot of heart (no pun intended). I do have to say I was on team Abby all the way and I found myself hating some characters just because they were not her. Among the top of my favourite list was definitely the grampa. He was so well written and really rounded out the character list. I am pretty sure this is every teenage girl’s dream come true. The narration was crisp, precise and stunning. Completely in awe and really brought the words to life. She was born to perform this book. Each character was distinct, funny, and really well done. She was able to flip flop back and forth from being several different 17 year old females, to bruiting 17 year old males while mixing in an 80 year old man, mother and father. There were also some other characters sprinkled in there too. The tone for each scene was spot on and done really well. Frustrated teens you have found your voice as the emotion was just right all the way through. Such a great listening experience from beginning to end. It was easy to rate this one very high and maybe it has inspired me to make a list of my own, but I am very sure it would not be as creative or fun as this one. Two thumbs way, way up!

More about the characters would help.

In my opinion the ending of the story was wrong. Or maybe I am just not mature enough to understand it. The ending did not seem realistic. The plot was building to a particular resolution, and then the ending was just pasted on. I decided to just ignore the ending and think of the book as finished when Abby talks to her grandfather in the garden and tells him you cannot control other people. I am a fan of this author, Kasie West. One of the interesting things in this book was the impact of Abby's father being away from home. Also I wished the character of Abby's grandfather was written with more background information about his life and feelings and what happened to his wife, Abby's grandmother.

Not a romance

Most of this book is spent with Abby complaining about everything. Cooper's character was not likable at all. The plot was predictable and the story crawled at slow pace.

I love Kasie, but...

This one isn't on the same level as her other novels. The obstacles feel a bit too cliche' and manufactured. Yes, there's a romance formula, but I usually like to find something surprising in it. I don't here. Also, I'm sure it's just a "one man's trash is another man's treasure" situation, but Cooper leaves a lot to be desired.

Loved it!

After her last book, which I did not like, I have to admit I hesitated to buy this one. I am so glad I bought it! I loved this book! It reminded me why I own all her books! For those that care as much as I do, this book is clean and safe to read! 😁
