A girl makes a list of what she would like to do before she is 30 but dies in a tragic accident before she can complete it. Two years later, in tribute to her memory, her friends complete the list but in doing so stir up buried secrets, silent guilt and unrequited love. This is a funny and touching contemporary story of love, loss, lifetime friends and making sure you don’t miss what’s right under your nose.
There are some people you can't imagine life without. What, at the end of it all, is really important? Liv and her friends can't imagine a life different from now: freedom, lifelong friendships, and dreams that are still within their reach. Then, Liv dies.
For those left behind - Mia, Fraser, Anna, Norm and Melody - everything stops. Their lives and dreams are frozen in time. In the years that follow, they decide to meet on Liv's birthday to raise a toast and celebrate her life, even though none of them are living their own - not really.
Time marches inexorably on, and yet without Liv, the lynchpin of the group, they are all flailing. Mia and Fraser are quietly falling apart because of the secret they share and, as truths are unearthed and their friendships are tested to the limit, they have to ask themselves - is it time to get on with the business of actually living?
