Emerson, Georgia and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: to conquer the fears they still carry as adults. For Marley, that means coming to terms with the survivor’s guilt she’s carried since her twin sister’s death, which has left her blind to the chance for romance. For Georgia, it’s about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother’s and brother’s ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her. But as Marley and Georgia grow stronger, the real meaning of Emerson’s dying wish becomes clear: she wanted her friends to love themselves.
