For fans of Julie Halpern and Morgan Matson comes a summer road trip story about adventure, sisters, and finding out who you truly want to be.

Anna's always idolized her older sister, Storm. So when Storm dies in a tragic car accident on the night of her high school graduation, Anna is completely lost and her family is torn apart. That is, until she finds Storm's summer bucket list and decides to honor her sister by having the best summer ever--which includes taking an epic road trip to the coast from her sleepy Iowa town. Setting out to do everything on Storm's list along with her sisters best friend Cameron--the boy next door--who knew that Storm's dream summer would eventually lead to Anna's own self-discovery?
Rachel Bateman grew up with an abundance of sisters, but an unfortunate lack of boys next door. Now she lives with her geek husband and young son in the middle of Montana, entirely too far from the ocean. When she's not writing, you can find Rachel sewing, wrangling chickens, or secretly planning her next road trip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read! **I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review** This was the type of book that catches my eye by the cover. Although the cover is quite like any other teen book it still caught my eye. I love bucket lists and having set out to complete goals for a summer or for a year. I really liked Anna and Cameron as characters, they're your typical teenagers. They're were relatable for teenagers or adults like me. Anyone who has suffered the loss of someone near them would relate to Anna. I think the author did a great job making her reactions to the situations logical and practical. She had her own opinions and plans. All in all I really liked this book it was adventurous and exciting. I would definitely recommend!
