The playful, epic adventure of a 160-pound English Mastiff and the 20-something girl who grew up alongside her. Marley and Me for a whole new generation.
Lauren Watt took her 160-pound English Mastiff to college, so of course after graduation Gizelle followed Lauren to her first tiny apartment in New York. Because Gizelle wasn't just a dog; she was a roommate, a sister, a confidante, a dining companion, and everything in between. Together Gizelle and Lauren went through boyfriends, first jobs, a mother's struggle with addiction, and the ups and downs of becoming an adult in the big city. But when Gizelle got sick and Lauren realized her best friend might not be such a constant after all, she designed an epic bucket list to make the absolute most of the time they had left.
Bursting with charm, this unique coming-of-age story of a girl making her way through life is a testament to the special way pets inspire us to live better, love better, and appreciate the simple pleasures. Gizelle's Bucket List is the humorous, poignant lesson our pets teach us: to embrace adventure, love unconditionally, and grow into the people we want to be.
