From the MacMillian Catalog on Edelweiss:

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: I found this gem while perusing the MacMillian catalog last week. Goodreads doesn’t have the cover or summary up yet but it immediately grabbed my attention. It is a strong test on your friendship to come back from being cheated on. To then put the hurt and past behind you and support your friend through the struggle of cancer says a lot about a character, in my opinion. It sounds full of heartbreak and all sorts of feelings. Definite must read!
