"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine where we share upcoming releases that we just cannot wait for!
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.
Release Date: April 1, 2011
This book caught my eye first of all, because of the cover. It looks so haunting and matches the title perfectly. Then as I read the synopsis and knew that I was going to have to read this book. Just like Sarah Dessen books, it sounds like this is a look into the dark places that come along with cancer. How it affects a family. Books like this are always a hard read, but I feel like reading them makes me a stronger person :).
