When Brett (named for Lady Brett from The Sun Also Rises) was 14, she created a Life List. Brett had long forgotten about the list, so she is all the more shocked when that turns out to be her inheritance instead of her mother’s cosmetic company. The Life List sends Brett on an incredible journey of self-discovery that is beautifully portrayed. The ways in which Brett ends up accomplishing her goals of the past is creative and touching, especially when she gets back in touch with her childhood friend.
