Read what Christy has to say about I’m Not Her by Janet Gurtler ($9.99, Sourcebooks, YA).
I liked this book because it was about kids and families dealing with REAL problems. When Tess’ older sister Kristina gets diagnosed with cancer and stops going to school, I think it must be really hard for Tess. With her sister at home, Tess has to face all her popular sisters’ friends and classmates, and she’s only a nerdy freshman! Throughout the book, Tess learns about how hard it can be to go through tough times and what that does to families. I saw how Tess changed and grew during the cancer.
I would definitely read more books by Janet Gurtler. She reminds me of Sarah Dessen, another one of my favorite authors.
