Shy high schooler Kyle Jamieson and Hailey Bosler, a musician with degenerative blindness, team up to tackle a bucket list of greatest fears in this compelling novel that explores what it means to take risks. It starts with a list of fears. Things that Hailey wouldn’t worry about if she didn’t wake up every morning with the world a little more blurry. Unable to read the music for her guitar. For a while, the only thing that keeps Hailey moving forward is the feeling she gets when she crosses something off the list. Then she meets Kyle. Together, they stumble into an odd friendship, helping each other tackle one after another of their biggest fears. But fate and timing can change everything.
