Waiting On Wednesday: I'm Not Her by Janet Gurtler

new cover
I'm Not Her
by Janet Gurtler
Published by Sourcebooks Fire
320 Pages
Release: May 1, 2011
“For the first time in my life, I didn’t feel envy…”
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?
Janet Gurtler tests the bonds of sisterhood in this moving debut that readers of Jodi Picoult and Sarah Dessen will savor.
old cover
The topic isn't very original, but I have a feeling I'm Not Her will be very good. 
I admit it. I tend to judge books by their cover. I'm Not Her originally had a different title (The Weight of Bones) and a different cover, on the right. I like both the new and the old, but the old had a creepier feeling to it which I loved compared to the plainer new cover.


  1. I want this one based on the cover as well (the pink and green cove) LOVE it! ~ I agree the old is creepier and the new seems more... sunny :)

  2. This book sounds pretty good. I think I'll have to look up more information on it. I think I prefer the newer cover. Don't know why. I guess I just love the simplicity of the newer cover.

  3. Great pick! I've not heard of it, but will definitely be adding it to my list!

  4. I've never heard of this, but it sounds interesting I def need to check it out! :)

  5. I'm a huge Sarah Dessen fan so I added I'm Not Her to my wishlist as soon as I heard about it. Awesome pick!

  6. I prefer the old cover and title as well. It looks a lot creepier! But the new one is pretty as well :)

  7. I am so happy to have found your blog- I love reading books, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed because I don't want to buy a book if I'm not quite sure I will particularly like it..

    Now I have you!! I've never heard of/seen alot of these titles you've featured, I'm so happy to get started with your highest reviewed!
