Waiting on Wednesday (73)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I'm Not Her by Janet Gurtler - May 1st, 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.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: This had a different title/cover before, The Weight of Bones, but it was changed. This cover stands out a little bit more, and seems a bit more... hopeful, I guess. From the description, it seems like a real heartbreaker, but incredible.

Future Imperfect by K. Ryer Breese - To be released April 26th, 2011

Ade Patience can see the future and it's destroying his life. When the seventeen-year-old Mantlo High School student knocks himself unconscious, he can see days and decades into his own future. Ade's the best of Denver's "divination" underground and eager to join the heralded Mantlo Diviners, a group of similarly enabled teens. Yet, unlike the Diviners, Ade Patience doesn't see the future out of curiosity or good will; Ade gives himself concussions because he's addicted to the high, the Buzz, he gets when he breaks the laws of physics. And while there have been visions he's wanted to change, Ade knows the Rule: You can't change the future, no matter how hard you try. 

(Summary from goodreads - more there.)

Why I want to read this: I think the idea of being addicted to seeing the future is really, really interesting, and I always like the whole psychic thing. Plus the cover font reminds me of something. Drought, a bit, but another book, too. Any ideas what book I mean? Just the font, not the rest of the cover (which I love).

Okay, that's everything.

  3. Kayla: Thanks!!

    Ashe: You know what the cover reminds me of? When I was a kid and I had horrible scraped knees and I wore skirts, I'd show the boys my scabs and gross them out.
