On My Wishlist (65)

In On My Wishlist I spotlight books that I'm really looking forward to. I know there's a meme Waiting on Wednesday and there even are others, but I'm going to rebel and do it how I want it (hehe). I'll feature the synopsis as posted on Goodreads and put a linkie to the Goodreads page of the book. This week: Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy.

Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
Expected publication date: March 18th, 2014

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?

This seriously sounds like a book that will break my heart, dance on it and put it back where it belongs. All in a good way, of course. With it being a debut for 2014, it gives me extra reason to want to read it -- but let's be honest: does it need anything more than that synopsis for you to pick it up? I know that for me, it doesn't. Only a few more weeks until this hits shelves! *stares at calendar* *sits on hands*
