With wry wit and boundless heart, Eva Woods delivers an unforgettable tale of celebrating triumphs great and small, seizing the day, and always remembering to live in the moment. Annie Hebden is stuck: stuck in her boring job, stuck with her irritating roommate, stuck in a life no thirty-five-year-old would want. But deep down Annie is still mourning the terrible loss that tore a hole through the perfect existence she’d once taken for granted—and hiding away is safer than remembering what used to be. At least it was, until she met the eccentric Polly Leonard. Bright, bubbly, and intrusive, Polly is everything Annie doesn’t want in a friend. But Polly is determined to wake Annie up to life. If recent events have taught Polly anything, it’s that time is too short to waste a single day, which is why she wants Annie to join her on a mission: one hundred days, one hundred new ways to be happy. Annie’s convinced it’s impossible, but so is saying no to Polly. And on an unforgettable journey that will force her to open herself to new experiences—and perhaps even new love with the unlikeliest of men—Annie will slowly begin to realize that maybe, just maybe, there’s still joy to be found in the world. But then it becomes clear that Polly’s about to need her new friend more than ever, and Annie will have to decide once and for all whether letting others in is a risk worth taking.

Summary

With wry wit and boundless heart, Eva Woods delivers an unforgettable tale of celebrating triumphs great and small, seizing the day, and always remembering to live in the moment.

Annie Hebden is stuck: stuck in her boring job, stuck with her irritating roommate, stuck in a life no thirty-five-year-old would want. But deep down Annie is still mourning the terrible loss that tore a hole through the perfect existence she’d once taken for granted—and hiding away is safer than remembering what used to be. At least it was, until she met the eccentric Polly Leonard.

Bright, bubbly, and intrusive, Polly is everything Annie doesn’t want in a friend. But Polly is determined to wake Annie up to life. If recent events have taught Polly anything, it’s that time is too short to waste a single day, which is why she wants Annie to join her on a mission: one hundred days, one hundred new ways to be happy.

Annie’s convinced it’s impossible, but so is saying no to Polly. And on an unforgettable journey that will force her to open herself to new experiences—and perhaps even new love with the unlikeliest of men—Annie will slowly begin to realize that maybe, just maybe, there’s still joy to be found in the world. But then it becomes clear that Polly’s about to need her new friend more than ever, and Annie will have to decide once and for all whether letting others in is a risk worth taking.
