257 Reasons to LiveEven though she beat cancer, Zhenya's life falls apart as everyone she leaned on turns out to be a massive jerk. But this young woman is truly unbreakable and she sets out to check off every wish on her bucket list: 257 of them – and she will fulfill them all!
At only thirty, Zhenya has had it rough. But after three years of fighting, the unthinkable happens: her cancer is in remission! Yet what should be the happiest day of her life quickly turns into a disaster. Her boyfriend doesn't waste time and dumps her on the spot. You're better? Good-bye then. At work, everyone is more irritated to see her alive than happy to see her back. And her younger sister Sonya, self-obsessed Insta-Queen, won't let go of the income she created from online fundraising for Zhenya's treatment.
All of this is enough to break a person. But not Zhenya! The answer is an old notebook she started when she was first diagnosed. In it: a bucket list full 257 wishes – small and silly, epic and complex, grounded and ambitious. The plan: do everything on the list. Off to new adventures, Zhenya is determined to keep her chin up – and is immediately run over by Konstantin, a grumpy yet handsome stranger…well, when life hands you lemons, be sure to ask for more!
