"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 Can't Wait: First of all, the cover? Love it! I originally saw this book in Macmillan's winter catalog and immediately wanted to read it. It's a book about friendship and loss, two subjects I personally hold dear. I'm also curious to see what's on this "F-it list" and how both Alex and Becca deal with everything going on in their lives. This doesn't seem like an easy read but definitely sounds like a good one!
