Pacey, poignant and eminently entertaining, this bittersweet book about living life to the full makes a wonderfully warm-hearted companion to take into the garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Lizzie, Jaddi and Samantha have been planning to take a trip of a lifetime together for a whopping nine years but, sadly, it’s taken Lizzie’s terminal cancer diagnosis to prompt them to actually do it. Well, that and the involvement of a TV production company who are funding the trip and will be there to document every step of the friends’ final shared journey.

While Lizzie now feels a strange sense of liberation and is ready to embrace the adventure, stunning Jaddi and (seemingly) sorted Samantha find themselves having to face big questions about their own lives, and the bonds of friendship deepen as their voyage progresses. Naturally, there are moving moments and tears along the way, (not to mention a rather unexpected twist towards the end), but there’s also laughter, and much love. ~ Joanne Owen

Synopsis

One Endless Summer by Laurie Ellingham

Three best friends. Three continents. Three months to live. How long can you keep a secret? Three best friends are embarking on an all-expenses paid trip of their dreams. The only catch? Every moment will be documented on film. Lizzie's battle with cancer is coming to an end, and now she's ready to embrace adventure for the very first time. There are only three months, but it is Lizzie's time to finally start living! Jaddi is known for her stunning looks, flirtatious attitude and many conquests. But Jaddi has a secret and on this last trip together she needs to decide whether her best friends will ever know the real her. Samantha has always been the 'grown up' of the group, the one with a five year plan. What Lizzie and Jaddi don't know is that Sam is trapped, and her perfect life isn't quite what it seems...As they trek across the globe Lizzie, Jaddi and Samantha must come to terms with loss, love and trusting one another. But will it all be too late...
