Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy Review!

Side Effects May VaryWhat 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, who 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 archnemesis) as it is about hope (doing something unexpectedly kind for a stranger). 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 caused irreparable damage to the people around her—and to the one person who matters most?

   *sniffle* I loved this book so much, I can't deal with it. SEMV is a fantastic book with love, loss and teenagers and their hormones. 
Alice has issues and I have accepted that. She is bitchy and I love her for it, I cannot bring myself to hate her. It could be that she has such good revenge plots, the world may never know. Harvey is a sweetheart with a heart of gold and I ACHEEE FOR HIM. Stupid Julie and her sweet fictional boys.
The plot was so juicy and I loved it so much. I can't even express how wonderful it was. The way that Alice carries out her revenge was wonderfully horrible. Julie captured high school in such a great way. It showed how your life can go to shit in a second.
I applaud you, Julie Murphy
