Reader's Review: Reading this was simple the scene starts out as a simple game of bingo and her lucky quarter along with her mom's lucky card. I found this story rather sad, but filled with memories. It was full of emotions and you can sense Emily's thought just as anyone who might of loss someone close. I saw Blake was a breath of sunshine for Emily who tried to make her happy even when she was not really feeling it herself. The Lucky List deals with some heavy issues but I loved how it was written. It was beautiful.

Description:

Emily and her mum were always lucky.

But Emily’s mum’s luck ran out three years ago when she succumbed to cancer, and nothing has felt right since.

Now, the summer before her senior year, things are worse than ever – Emily has wrecked things with her boyfriend, Matt, and her dad is selling the house she grew up in and giving her mum’s belongings away. The only person she has to talk to is Blake, a girl she barely knows since she and her dad moved back to town five seconds ago.

But that’s when Emily finds the list – her mum’s senior year summer bucket list – buried in the back of her closet. When Blake suggests that Emily take it on as a challenge, the two set off on a journey to tick each box and help Emily face her fears over losing her connection to her mum. As she starts to feel closer to her mother, so too does Emily’s bond with Blake deepen into something she wasn’t expecting.

And suddenly Emily must face another fear: accepting the secret part of herself she never got a chance to share with the person who knew her best.
