You have two girls: Alex and Becca, who are friends and the novel starts off with Alex being mad at Becca for sleeping with her boyfriend on the night of her father's funeral. She's all set to forgive her after a time, only to realize that Becca has cancer. Becca decides she wants to do everything she can do in something like a "bucket list", which they affectionately call the "F-it List." There's a lot of pop culture dropping, what with Alex's love for horror movies and media, and there's a bit of focus on Alex's growing love for Leo. But they all have to contend with their grief at some point.
Despite me assuming that The F-it List would be a book which would solely focus on a friend complete her sick friends bucket List I’m pleased to say this story provided much more than this. The bucket list that Becca who had been diagnosed with cancer asked her friend Alex to compete was an integral part of the story. It was made even more important because Becca and Alex hadn’t been talking until Alex found out about Becca’s diagnosis. It was like it had become crucial to make up on the precious time the two friends had lost over the summer. But also Becca hadn’t just made this bucket list since she had found out about her cancer, but had worked on it for a long time, so helping Becca fulfil some of the dreams, even though some did sound lame was important to Alex.
I really liked the way this book was written. Whilst I don’t think this book is appropriate for some people. There was quite a lot of swearing, drugs and sex themes throughout – but I liked it because this is how teenagers can be. The way these characters spoke to each other felt real and there was a real sense of truth about this. And because the story was told in such a believable way, I found myself sucked into it even more.
