Waiting on Wednesday: The F-It List Julie Halpern

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.

Title: The F-It List by Julie Halpern
Published by: Feiwel & Friends
Release on: November 12, 2013

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 want to read it:  I've never read anything by Halpern before, but this book sounds like a heart wrenching read, right?  I'm very curious about what this bucket list might have and how will they make it all happen.


  1. That synopsis was not what I expected when I saw the cover, but it sounds amazing!

  2. I literally just finished this last night. It's so good. Not very heart wrenching, though, but very snarky and funny. I laughed aloud frequently. :D

    1. Lucky you! If you like it, I'm sure I'll love it :)

  3. Uh Oh! This sounds like a book that wants to make me cry! haha

  4. This sounds like such an amazing book. Exactly the kind of book that I love reading, and I love that it seems to focus a lot on friendship. Great pick!
