Sabrina shows up for her 30th birthday dinner with her best friend, Jessica, only to discover a few others are joining them. She immediately recognizes that Jessica has invited her list of five people—living or dead— that she’d like to have dinner with. An unusual and amusing premise, but the book is mainly Sabrina and Tobias’s love story—from their first meeting in California, when Sabrina feels a connection but doesn’t even know his name, to their eventual romance in New York, years later.

While the story drags a bit in the middle, making the reader almost wish Sabrina and Tobias would break up for good, by the end, it is a memorable tale that will break your heart. I’m writing this review ten months after I read the book, and still tearing up.
