Sometimes all you need is a little push…

When Georgia’s sister is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, she promises to do everything her older sibling can no longer do, resulting in a journey that will change her life forever…

Georgia loves wine, reality TV and sitting on the sofa after work. She does not love heights, looking at her bank account, going on dates, or activities that involve a sports bra. And she will never, ever take a risk.

That is, until her braver, bolder, big sister finds out that she won’t be able to tick off the things she wanted to do before turning thirty, and turns to Georgia to help her finish her list.

With the birthday just months away, Georgia suddenly has a deadline to learn to grab life with both hands. Could she be brave enough to take the leap, for her sister?

And how might her own life change if she did?

A hilarious and heart-warming journey of a lifetime, showing us what it means to really be alive.

As a big fan of ‘lists’, I was really looking forward to reading this book. That satisfaction of ticking the completed tasks off, seeing you have achieved what you set yourself to do. Well this list is some sort of bucket list to get out of comfort zone and start living!

I don’t think I’ve ever met such a funny character as Georgia. Her inner conversations with herself were written so brilliantly, I was crying with laughter.

Skydive without a bra? hahaha I nearly died

Georgia tackling this list so bravely on the outside, while really struggling and fighting it with every bit of her on the inside. She is fantastic character and probably one of my favourite ones ever!

I only just finished this book this morning and now feel this incredible emptiness. What do I do without this book? Where do I find something even remotely as funny as this? Hand on heart, I will really miss these characters a lot.
