Waiting on Wednesday (#51) - Side Effect May Vary by Julie Murphy

Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

Side Effects May Vary
Goodreads Summary: What if you’d been living your life as if you were dying—only to find out that you had your whole future ahead of you? 

When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed with leukemia, her prognosis is grim. To maximize the time she does have, she vows to spend her final months righting wrongs—however she sees fit. She convinces her friend Harvey, whom she knows has always had feelings for her, to help her with a crazy bucket list that’s as much about revenge (humiliating her ex-boyfriend and getting back at her arch nemesis) as it is about hope (doing something unexpectedly kind for a stranger and reliving some childhood memories). But just when Alice’s scores are settled, she goes into remission.

Now Alice is forced to face the consequences of all that she’s said and done, as well as her true feelings for Harvey. But has she done irreparable damage to the people around her, and to the one person who matters most? 

Julie Murphy’s SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY is a fearless and moving tour de force about love, life, and facing your own mortality.

Why I'm Waiting For It: Realistic Fiction? (Check), Facing her consequences? (Check), and Realistic Fiction? (Check). COUNT ME IN! There are litte reviews on Side Effect May Very but seriously it sounds like my book here! The reviews are raving over them and I'm dying to see what really gets the reader to love it. I am excited for it and cannot wait to pick it even more.

Side Effect May Vary is releasing on March 18, 2014 by Balzer + Brey
