If your life was going to end tomorrow, what would you do today?'

'Quirky, funny and hugely readable, this is a story about the power of friendship and sisterhood, as well as love and loss.' Fabulous

Jennifer Cole has just been told that she has three months to live -- ninety days to say goodbye and put her affairs in order. Trying to focus on the positives she realises she has one overriding regret: the words she's left unsaid.

So Jennifer writes letters to three significant people in her life: her overbearing, selfish sister, her jelly-spined, cheating ex-husband, and her charming, unreliable ex-boyfriend finally telling them the things she's always wanted to say but never dared.

At first, she feels liberated. But once you start telling the truth, it's hard to stop. And, as she soon discovers, the truth isn't always what it seems. Death has a way of surprising you ...

A smart, funny, uplifting debut which asks big questions.
