What do you do when you’ve fallen for your best friend? Funny and romantic, this effervescent story about family, friendship, and finding yourself is perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han.

Seventeen-year-old Abby Turner’s summer isn’t going the way she’d planned. She has a not-so-secret but definitely unrequited crush on her best friend, Cooper. She hasn’t been able to manage her mother’s growing issues with anxiety. And now she’s been rejected from an art show because her work “has no heart.” So when she gets another opportunity to show her paintings, Abby isn’t going to take any chances.

Which is where the list comes in.

Abby gives herself one month to do ten things, ranging from face a fear (#3) to learn a stranger’s story (#5) to fall in love (#8). She knows that if she can complete the list, she’ll become the kind of artist she’s always dreamed of being.

But as the deadline approaches, Abby realizes that getting through the list isn’t as straightforward as it seems . . . and that maybe—just maybe—she can’t change her art if she isn’t first willing to change herself.

Kasie West lives with her family in central California, where the heat tries to kill her with its 115-degree stretches. She graduated from Fresno State University with a BA degree that has nothing to do with writing. Visit her online at

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An OK Fluffy Summer Read It was a nice light hearted read or summer. This waste first book have read by Kassie West and I was happy with it, but I feel like Abby was slightly too whiny and I was waiting a couple pages too long for some real action or drama to happen between the characters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Read this all in one sitting. A contemporary romance where the main lead also makes strong female friendships that are on par with the romantic relationship she is trying to pursue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kasie West Delivers Again! Kasie West makes me happy. Her stories are so satisfying with all the fluttery butterflies and emotional depths. I can always rely on her to bring the swoons while relatably discussing more serious issues. Love, Life and the List was pretty much perfect. The story encompassed a lot. From social anxiety to personal differences to unrequited love, each gave the story more meaning than the next. Every character was relatable in their own way. Abby's mom's noticeably escalating anxiety level felt true to her situation. The snarky sense of humour Abby shared with her grandfather was a really nice familial link. They were quite the sarcastic pair but all in good fun. I admired Abby's drive and determination. She worked hard to complete the tasks she set for herself. Each item she checked off helped her get to know herself better. I loved Abby's willingness to learn and change. With Cooper I was a little disheartened by his blindness to Abby's feelings but I could understand his position. He's young and has lots more conflicts and truths to figure out for himself. There's no doubt Abby and Cooper were the cutest when they were with each other. It took them some time to sort out their feelings but things worked out with minimal drama. Though there was one "mean girl" scene that left me slightly queasy. Let's just say Abby used her best friend status over Cooper. It was a very 'real' situation and not entirely one-sided but I had to shake my head. Friendship was a major player in Love, Life and the List. Abby and Cooper were the best of friends but I hated seeing her in such a precarious emotional state with her romantic feelings for him. It was borderline mentally unhealthy. I wanted to high five her when she got out of her comfort zone and found some new friends like Lacey. Honestly I can go on and on about how much I enjoyed Love, Life and the List but you should all find out for yourselves. If smiling and swooning are your thing, trust me and pick up a Kasie West novel. Thank me later~
