Summary
There's nothing like being told that in three months you'll be dead to make you think about what you really want in life... Jennifer Cole has just been told that she has a rare and terminal blood disorder. She has 90 days to say goodbye to friends and family, and to put her affairs in order. Focusing on the positives (she won't have to go on in a world without Bowie or Maya Angelou; she won't get Alzheimer's or Parkinson's, or teeth that flop out at the mere mention of the word apple), Jennifer realises she only has one real regret to address: the relationships she's lost. So rather than running off to complete a frantic bucket list of exotic experiences in tropical holiday destinations, she chooses to stay put and write a letter each to three people - her overbearing, selfish sister, her jelly-spined, cheating ex-husband, and her charming, unreliable ex-boyfriend - finally telling them the truth. After all, what is the worst that can happen to you when you have nothing left to lose? At first, Jennifer feels cleansed by her catharsis. Liberated, even. Her ex-boyfriend rushes to her side and she even starts to build bridges with her sister Isabelle (that is, once Isabelle's confirmed that Jennifer's condition isn't genetic). But once you start telling the truth, it's hard to stop. And as she'll discover, the truth isn't always as straightforward as it seems
