Side Effects May Vary
By Julie Murphy
Release Date: March 18, 2014Summary: 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.
Oh boy, this one is going to be a heartbreaker, I can feel it. A girl has Lukemia and she recruits her best friend who's in love with her to help her complete her bucket list? Gosh, can you tug at the heart strings any harder? But wait, she goes into remission! Imagine everything Alice is going to have to face now that she's finally done everything she's always been to scared to do. I really really can't wait for the chance to read this one!
