The epic adventure of a 160-pound English Mastiff and the twentysomething girl who grew up alongside her--"as much a story about growing up as about letting go of things that cannot be changed...and a reminder of the profound healing connection that can exist between humans and the pets they love" ( Kirkus Reviews ).

When Lauren Fern Watt moved to New York after college, she took her 160-pound English Mastiff, Gizelle, with her. And though it wasn't easy, she managed to find a dog-friendly (albeit tiny) apartment in the middle of it all--Times Square. Gizelle was there for Lauren's first job, her mother's struggle with addiction, her New York romances, and the ups and downs of becoming an adult in the big city. But when Gizelle got sick, Lauren realized her best friend might not be such a constant after all, and she designed an epic bucket list to make the absolute most of the time they had left.

Bursting with charm, Gizelle's Bucket List is "an inspirational, uplifting experience that will leave you feeling that anything is possible. For anyone who has had a pet; who has loved and lost; who has hoped for the future, this is an enchanting story of an unlikely journey that will stay with you for a long time" ( Elle, UK ).

Easy read and entirely relatable for anyone who has a pet. Reinforces the comforting relationship humans and animals have with each other.

"It's weird," I said. "I feel [Gizelle] around me all the time. I feel her presence even now, walking with us." I held my arm out in the air like I was holding her leash, imagining her following us to enjoy steak frites and red wine and mussels on this cold winter night in New York City. She'd prop her head on the table and smile at us.

"I feel that too," Caitlin added. "She's definitely around. But you know what? You know what really reminds me of Gizelle?" ... "You do Lauren. You remind me of Gizelle. When I'm with you, I feel like I'm with her."
