    Explores positive character development

    For high school students Cady and Cooper, the end of their senior year is approaching too quickly. In hopes of making themselves look more interesting once they start college, they come up with the Weekend Bucket List. Cady hopes this list will help her come out of her shell and possibly help her determine whether she is in love with her best friend. Cooper wants to also clear up confusion with Cady and face many of his fears head-on. As they start to complete more of the list, a not-so-much "globe-trotter" named Eli Stanley joins the group, not knowing about the bucket list that was created. As the friendship between Eli, Cady, and Cooper begins to falter, they have to make an important decision: is their friendship authentic, and does it outweigh any feelings they may have for each other beyond that? Opinion: In The Weekend Bucket List, the characters Cady, Cooper, and even Cady's brother, Bradley, expressed positive character development as they learned their strengths and weaknesses. Although certain parts of how Cady acts can be seen as frustrating and stubborn, her personality was changed after her brother Bradley sent her family into a dark place for a long time. However, through her experiences and friendships, she changed her outlook on life for the better. Cooper is also a very confused teenager who is struggling to come to terms with his bisexuality while also figuring out whether he and Cady are better as friends or something more. I feel like a lot of the reason why Cooper joined in on the Weekend Bucket List was because he did not want to lose his friendships with Cady and felt like he almost had to so he could gain acceptance from the people he met at college. This makes Cady seem very insensitive to how others, especially Cooper and Eli, are feeling. This is particularly true when Cady decides that she and Cooper should leave Eli after they finish the list because he is "just a stranger," when in reality Eli thinks of them as his friends. Despite this, Cady gets important advice from the one person she was desperately trying to avoid: her brother. Her brother had a hard couple of years trying to get his life back on track, but it is clear that he cares for his sister a lot through his actions and wants to make it up to his family. If it was not for this advice he gave, it seems like Cady would have thought the friendship she had with Cooper and Eli was pointless. Overall, I appreciate the viewpoints from all three characters to be able to determine who they are as individuals, and the acceptance of Cooper's family makes it much better than the typical coming-out book. The book also shows how honesty really is the best policy, especially when it comes to friendships. Reviewed by a LitPick student book reviewer Age 16
