Emma Lord | Paperback | January 2024
Inescapably romantic and brimming with New York Times bestselling author Emma Lord's signature cheer, The Getaway List is an uplifting and romantic read and a love letter to New York. The day of her high school graduation, Riley realizes that she has spent the last four years trying so hard to be a Good Kid for her mom that she has no idea who she really is anymore. The solution? Pack her bags and move to New York for the summer to stay with her best friend Tom and do everything on The Getaway List. Riley isn't sure what to expect from Tom, who has been distant since he moved away. But when she arrives in the city, their reconnection is effortless. As she, Tom, and their newfound friends work their way through the delightfully chaotic items on The Getaway List, Riley learns that sometimes the biggest adventure is not one you take, but one you feel in your heart.
