WoW [41]

Waiting on Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s WoW feature is:

The F-It List by Julie Halpen
Expected Publication: November 12, 2013
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

Summary via Goodreads...
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 off love the title! I’m getting a different vibe and twist to other books whose storyline revolves around disease. I can’t wait to see how and if this book is indeed different.

Please feel free to link up your WoW.
Also be sure to add me on Goodreads…I love seeing other peoples book interests.
