Rebecca Blue, who’s never fit in and stopped trying long ago, doesn’t have anything in common with perky, selfless Kennedy Green except that they happen to be suffering through detention on the same day. When that turns out to be Kennedy’s last day on Earth, Rebel (as she’s known) decides to complete the dead girl’s bucket list to prove that choice, not chance, controls her fate.
Kennedy’s list is full of good deeds—the kinds of things that require self-sacrifice and teamwork to achieve. Rebel believes in being true to yourself even if it makes other people uncomfortable. In order to complete the list, Rebel must open her mind and heart to a world she once dismissed–a world of friendships, family, and faith.
It’s also the world of Nate, the golden boy do-gooder who never looks out for himself, whom Rebel finds herself falling for. But as Rebel loses herself in Kennedy’s list–and hears Kennedy’s voice, egging her on–she’s not sure her experiment in personal choice is working the way she thought it would. What if destiny has a plan for her, too?
