(4) After Alice is diagnosed with terminal leukemia, she spends months checking items, many vengeful in nature, off a bucket list ... only to discover that she's in remission and must deal with the consequences. Packed with excessive point-of-view and time shifts, the narration can initially be difficult to follow, but the story might appeal to fans of The Fault in Our Stars.
