Synopsis

When Alice is diagnosed with leukaemia and time is suddenly not a luxury, she convinces her friend Harvey to help her with a crazy bucket list.  It's as much about revenge as redemption and warped or not, it gives Alice the focus she needs when everything else seems pointless.Then she goes into remission.Now faced with the consequences of her actions, can Alice repair the damage she's caused to those around her?  And maybe, just maybe, show the one who loves her most how much she loves him in return?"Honest and unflinching, this is a compelling story of one teen's struggle with cancer, love, and living. A worthwhile addition."  - School Library Journal"Readers will turn the last page wanting to know where the next chapter leads." -  Kirkus Review
