“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!
My pick of the week is:
The F- It List
by Julie Halpern
Coming: 12 November 2013
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
With her signature heart and humor, Julie Halpern explores a strained friendship strengthened by one girl’s battle with cancer.
Alex’s father recently died in a car accident. And on the night of his funeral, her best friend Becca slept with Alex’s boyfriend. So things aren’t great. Alex steps away from her friendship with Becca and focuses on her family.
But when Alex finally decides to forgive Becca, she finds out something that will change her world again–Becca has cancer.
So what do you do when your best friend has cancer? You help her shave her head. And then you take her bucket list and try to fulfill it on her behalf. Because if that’s all you can do to help your ailing friend–you do it.
Why I’m excited:
I will admit, I selected this eARC based on the title. Then when I read the description I knew I had to read it. In my alternating ARC/eARC and for fun list, I haven’t gotten to this one yet, but it’s coming up soon. Can’t wait to read it!
Why I need you to be excited
Friendship betrayal is not something I like. But being able to repair your friendship is something that I admire. It’s not easy to get over things. Helping your dying friend complete her bucket list is awesome! (:
