Waiting on Wednesday #4: I'm Not Her

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that "spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating."

So this week I'm waiting on...

I'm Not Her by Janet Gurtler
(Amazon / Goodreads)
Publication date: May 1st 2011

Goodreads description:

Tess is the exact opposite of her beautiful, athletic sister. And that’s okay. Kristina is the sporty one, Tess is the smart one, and they each have their place. Until Kristina is diagnosed with cancer. Suddenly Tess is the center of the popular crowd, everyone eager for updates. There are senior boys flirting with her. Yet the smiles of her picture-perfect family are cracking and her sister could be dying. Now Tess has to fill a new role: the strong one. Because if she doesn’t hold it together, who will?

The cover looks sweet, and the story reminds me of My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult, which I loved (review). I think it's a little strange that Tess suddenly becomes popular because of her sister having cancer, but it still sounds like an emotional read. Sisterhood is an interesting topic to me, and Janet Gurtler's writing has been compared to Sarah Dessen's, which almost guarantees I'll like it!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I too liked My Sister's Keeper, and I agree that this sounds similar. Hope you enjoy it when it comes out :)

  2. I think I'd need a box of tissues to read this one!

    Thanks for sharing with us.
