The Friendship List

[ ] Dance till dawn

[ ] Go skydiving

[ ] Wear a bikini in public

[ ] Start living

Two best friends jump-start their lives in a summer that will change them forever…

Single mom Ellen Fox couldn’t be more content—until she overhears her son saying he can’t go to his dream college because she needs him too much. If she wants him to live his best life, she has to convince him she’s living hers.

So Unity Leandre, her best friend since forever, creates a list of challenges to push Ellen out of her comfort zone. Unity will complete the list, too, but not because she needs to change. What’s wrong with a thirtysomething widow still sleeping in her late husband’s childhood bed?

The Friendship List begins as a way to make others believe they’re just fine. But somewhere between “wear three-inch heels” and “have sex with a gorgeous guy,” Ellen and Unity discover that life is meant to be lived with joy and abandon, in a story filled with humor, heartache and regrettable tattoos.

My Review

OMG. I absolutely fell in love with this book hard. Ellen and Unity have the type of friendship that many women desire. This book reminded me of the movie, The Bucket List starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson.

There was a discussion question at the end of the book that asked which woman did I like better. Neither. I liked them both equally. I will explain my answer. 

Ellen and Unity as both women learned to live for themselves. Ellen because she stopped being a mom for once and allowed herself to follow her heart. In the case of Unity, she found love for a second time. Both men were great. Which is another discussion question. Which would you choose...Keith or Thaddeus. Again my answer is both. The Friendship List is a must read that will tug at your heartstrings and put a smile on your face. It is the perfect summer read!
