Title: I'm Not Her
Author: Janet Gurtler
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Date of Release: May 1, 2011
Goodreads Description: “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.
Why am I waiting? Sarah Dessen is one of my favourite authors and the description mentions that this one will appeal to her fans. Also, I love books that deal with disorders or diseases because I find it very inspiring when characters learn to confront the reality of having an illness and then overcome it.
