I’m Not Her
Christy, today’s guest reviewer is from northern California. She’s 13, plays competitive softball (she’s the pitcher) and likes to hang out with her friends. “Summer is too short!” says Christy.
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.
