A fierce, feisty, and “compulsively delicious” (Redbook) debut with a magical twist about three ordinary, regular young women who suddenly have their fantasies come true…or do they?

Best friends Evie, Krista, and Willow are just trying to make it through their mid-twenties in New York. With average looks and typical quarter-life crises, they’re trying to make it up the corporate ladder, make sense of online dating, and make rent.

Until they come across Pretty, a magic tincture that makes them, well...gorgeous. Like, supermodel gorgeous. And it’s certainly not their fault if the sudden gift of beauty causes unexpected doors to open for them.

But there’s a dark side to Pretty, too, and as the gloss fades for these modern-day Cinderellas, there’s just one question left:

What would you sacrifice to be Pretty?

Wildly irreverent, blatantly sexy, and observed with pitch-perfect wit, The Regulars is a fresh, “twisted, modern-day take on Cinderella.” (InStyle), perfect for fans of Jennifer Close and Kevin Kwan.

“Emotional, hilarious, and thought-provoking.”—People

“Witty, sexy.” —Los Angeles Times
“A crowd-pleaser.”—Publishers Weekly
“A compelling, thoughtful take on a very real women's health issue; confidently sexy.”—Kirkus Reviews

From the author of the critically acclaimed “lively and engrossing parable for women of all generations” (Harper’s Bazaar) The Regulars­ comes a deeply funny and thoughtful tale of a young woman who, after discovering she has the breast cancer gene, embarks on an unforgettable bucket list adventure.

Twenty-five-old Lacey Whitman is blindsided when she’s diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene mutation: the “breast cancer” gene. Her high hereditary risk forces a decision: increased surveillance or the more radical step of a preventative double mastectomy. Lacey doesn't want to lose her breasts. For one, she’s juggling two career paths; her work with the prestigious New York trend forecaster Hoffman House, and her role on the founding team of a sustainable fashion app with friend/mentor, Vivian Chang. Secondly, small-town Lacey’s not so in touch with her sexuality: she doesn’t want to sacrifice her breasts before she’s had the chance to give them their hey-day. To help her make her choice, she (and her friends) creates a “boob bucket list”: everything she wants do with and for her boobs before a possible surgery.

This kicks off a year of sensual exploration and sexual entertainment for the quick-witted Lacey Whitman. The Bucket List cleverly and compassionately explores Lacey’s relationship to her body and her future. Both are things Lacey thought she could control through hard work and sacrifice. But the future, it turns out, is more complicated than she could ever imagine.

Featuring the pitch-perfect “compulsively delicious” (Redbook) prose of The Regulars, The Bucket List is perfect for fans of Amy Poeppel and Sophie Kinsella.

Welchen Preis würdest du zahlen, um nicht mehr einfach nur gewöhnlich zu sein?

Evie, Krista und Willow sind vor allem eins: durchschnittlich. Seit die drei Freundinnen das College hinter sich gebracht haben, versuchen sie, ihr Leben in New York einigermaßen auf die Reihe zu bekommen. Dass sich ihr Alltag kein bisschen so gestaltet, wie sie es aus Filmen und TV-Serien kennen, wird ihnen schnell klar. Statt teurer Schuhe, glamouröser Jobs und Cocktails rund um die Uhr schlagen sie sich mit fiesen Chefs, zu hohen Mieten und desaströsen Online-Dates herum.

All das ändert sich, als ihnen eines Tages ein Wundermittel namens Pretty in die Hände fällt. Ein einziger Tropfen soll genügen, um jedem Menschen zu unglaublicher Schönheit zu verhelfen. Evie, Krista und Willow probieren es aus - und sind von einer Sekunde auf die andere alles andere als normal.

Schön zu sein verändert ihr Leben. Mit einem Mal ergeben sich Chancen, die zuvor undenkbar gewesen wären, Türen öffnen sich, die stets fest verschlossen waren. Es ist wie ein Traum, alles scheint möglich. Doch je öfter die drei einen Tropfen von Pretty zu sich nehmen und je mehr Zeit sie in ihrem neuen Körper verbringen, desto dringender wird die Frage: Was geschieht, wenn sie Pretty aufgebraucht haben und sie zu ihrem normalen Ich zurückkehren? Wissen sie überhaupt noch, wer sie wirklich sind?
