Love triangles, unrequited crushes, love at first sight…If any of those apply to your life, you might be living in a YA novel!
We all know that Kasie West writes the most adorable but relatable love stories and her newest novel LOVE, LIFE, AND THE LIST is no exception! In the novel, Abby is struggling with a not-so-secret crush on her best friend, so if you’ve been there before, or feel like your life is a little messy right now (honestly, same), then it’s time to find out how YA your life really is!
About Love, Life, and the List
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 ten things, ranging from face a fear (#3) to learn a stranger’s story (#5) to fall in love (#8). 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.
