Single mom Ellen Fox is in a rut. A rut so big that her soon-to-be college-bound son is contemplating going to a college nearby so he can “take care of her.” Overhearing this confession to one of his friends, Ellen decides to make some drastic changes in her life, to make sure she isn’t holding back her son. Her best friend, Unity Leandre, supports Ellen’s decision and helps her create a list of ways to spice up her life. In solidarity, and not because she is in a huge rut herself after the death of her husband, Unity decides to tackle a list of her own. The Friendship List is born, and the two women spend the summer making over their lives and tackling items such as new wardrobes, getting tattoos, and going on dates. Through adventures that are sometimes hilarious and other times poignant, the friends begin to deal with what has been holding them back and support each other as they push themselves toward a more fulfilling future. Tanya Eby voices each of the characters with humor, charm, and compassion. The characters are dealing with some serious emotional weight that Eby portrays with a heartfelt honesty.
VERDICT A fun read filled with both lighthearted humor as well as emotional depth.
