When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed
with acute lymphocytic leukemia, she vows
to spend her final months righting wrongs.
So she convinces her best friend Harvey,
who’s loved her forever, to help with
compiling a crazy just-dying-to-do bucket
list, that’s as much about revenge as it is
about redemption. But just when Alice’s
scores are settled, she goes into remission.
Now she must face the consequences of all
she’s said and done and discover just what
happens when we say our ‘final’ words, only
to find that life isn’t through with us yet.

Alice is diagnosed with leukemia and decides to start checking things off her to-do list so that when she dies she won’t have any regrets but then the unimaginable happens. She goes into remission (much to her dismay) and has to answer for what she has done.
Alice – This girl right here is the true definition of bitch which is hard to admit since she is the person who was dying of leukemia.
Harvey – Harvey is hands down the complete opposite of Alice. I felt so bad for him because he would do anything for her no matter if he was just her doormat.
I had so many mixed feelings about this book. Parts I loved but there were so many parts I questioned. I didn’t understand Alice’s logic for most of her decisions, her undeniable anger at her mother for something she wasn’t allowed to defend herself for (but when said topic was discussed it felt rushed and for the amount of time and effort she thought about it she forgave way too fast), the way she strung Harvey along and expected him to wait on her hand and foot, SIGH. There are so many more things, I just don’t know. . .I felt horrible most of the book because I truly hated Alice though to be fair I hated a few other people in the book as well.
