"At the bottom of the stack of mail was a giant postcard folded in half. The postcard showed families on mini trains and in spinning teacups. It read: CHILL OF WINTER GOT YOU DOWN? IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY TO BOOK YOUR SUMMER VACATION TO LAKE QUASIPI FAMILY AMUSEMENT PARK! Up until fifth grade, we’d gone to Lake Quasipi every summer. It was this old, rundown amusement park that never had any lines. My memories from Lake Quasipi were perfect little slices of nostalgia where everyone got a happy ending." - Alice

About the book:  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. [ADD TO GOODREADS]

About the author:  Julie lives in North Texas with her husband who loves her, her dog who adores her, and her cat who tolerates her. When she's not writing or trying to catch stray cats, she works at an academic library. Side Effects May Vary is Julie's debut novel.
