Waiting on Wednesday–The F– It List by Julie Halpern

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.


I’ve said it plenty of times: Cancer books aren’t always for me. I do make exceptions, however, and I think I might with Julie Halpern’s upcoming release. I like the spin on this one because it’s not from the point of view of a cancer patient. I haven’t read any of her books, so hopefully this one will be a good one to start with.

The F-It ListTitle & Author: The F– It List by Julie Halpern

Release Date: November 12th, 2013

Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

Summary (From 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.


  1. I tend to shy away from Cancer books, because the subject matter can be so heart wrenching. But, they are also the kind of books we need to read because the subject affects so many of us in one way or another! I hope The F– It List turns out to be the exception for you. I also like that the story is told from the best friends POV. Thanks for sharing your WOW! 🙂

  2. The name sounds really catchy! It looks good. Great pick.
