Simon & Schuster,
Pub. Date:
First Simon & Schuster hardcover edition.
The playful, epic adventure of a 160-pound English Mastiff and the twentysomething girl who grew up alongside her-- Marley & Me for a whole new generation. Lauren Watt took her 160-pound English Mastiff to college--so of course after graduation, Gizelle followed Lauren to her first, tiny apartment in New York. Because Gizelle wasn't just a dog; she was a roommate, sister, confidante, dining companion, and everything in between. Together, Gizelle and Lauren went through boyfriends, first jobs, a mother's struggle with addiction, and the ups and downs of becoming an adult in the big city. But when Gizelle got sick and Lauren realized her best friend might not be such a constant after all, she designed an epic bucket list to make the absolute most of the time they had left. Bursting with charm, this unique, coming-of-age story of a girl making her way through life is a testament to the special way pets inspire us to live better, love better, and appreciate the simple pleasures. Gizelle's Bucket List is the humorous, poignant lesson our pets teach us: to embrace adventure, love unconditionally, and grow into the people we want to be.

display_description"A lightbeat, epic account of how the 20-something author brought her giant English Mastiff to her first tiny New York apartment after college, while navigating boyfriends, first jobs, her mother's illness and a bucket list that involves her dog's participation,"--NoveList. "Lauren Fern Watt moved to New York City after graduating from college, and she took her enormous 160-pound mastiff, Gizelle, along for the ride. It wasn't easy, but Lauren managed to find a dog-friendly (i.e., tiny) apartment in the middle of it all--Times Square. Throughout her twenties, Gizelle always was there for Lauren: her first job, her mother's struggle with addiction, and the challenges of becoming an adult in the big city. So when Gizelle got sick and Lauren realized her best friend might not always be around, she designed an epic bucket list to make the absolute most of the time they had left. A heartwarming adventure, Gizelle's Bucket List is about how a dog can teach humans the power of unconditional love and the value of each precious moment."--Jacket.
