Goodreads summary

What if you’d been living your life as if you were dying—only to find out that you had your whole future ahead of you? 

When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed with leukemia, her prognosis is grim. To maximize the time she does have, she vows to spend her final months righting wrongs—however she sees fit. She convinces her friend Harvey, whom she knows has always had feelings for her, to help her with a crazy bucket list that’s as much about revenge (humiliating her ex-boyfriend and getting back at her arch nemesis) as it is about hope (doing something unexpectedly kind for a stranger and reliving some childhood memories). But just when Alice’s scores are settled, she goes into remission.

Now Alice is forced to face the consequences of all that she’s said and done, as well as her true feelings for Harvey. But has she done irreparable damage to the people around her, and to the one person who matters most? 

Julie Murphy’s SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY is a fearless and moving tour de force about love, life, and facing your own mortality.

My Thoughts: I have been looking for a books that are realistic and face death and dying subjects. This book sounds perfect! I wish it was already out so I could read it. I really hope that it's as great as I hope it's going to be.


  1. I usually avoid books about any type of terminal illness, so I might wait to see what everyone thinks of this one first. I do love the cover though. Great pick and thanks for sharing! :)

  2. Great pick. Sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing :)
