"THIS BOOK WAS SOOOOOO GOOD! Literally. Janet Gurtler just knows how to write a book.

"I absolutely adored this novel! It only took me one day to read because I loved it so much. It actually lived up to my very high standards after just rereading Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl for the third or fourth time now. It was quite similar to Fang..." Read more of this review »

“... We're just different."
"Yeah," I say. "I'm mute and you have verbal diarrhea.”
Janet Gurtler, I'm Not Her

“I may not be happy with you right now, but I still love you.”
Janet Gurtler, How I Lost You

“Just like that, he's gone. Things can change so quickly. One second you're in the present, the next you're remembering the past.”
Janet Gurtler, Who I Kissed

“You belong, Jaz. You’re a human being. Color isn’t what you are.
It’s just your shade. You’re beautiful. Inside. Where it counts.”
Janet Gurtler, If I Tell

“What she doesn’t know is that I don’t want to feel better. I don’t want to go on with my life as if nothing happened. Something did happen. Something big."

Samatha from WHO I KISSED”
Janet Gurtler, Who I Kissed

“There she stood. Dark circles ringed her eyes. Her face was pale, almost snow-white. She probably hadn't slept, either. She was still wearing the same dress. Her hair looked like a bomb had gone off. She was beautiful.”
Daniel Ehrenhaft, Friend Is Not a Verb
tags: ya

“[A young adult novel] ends not with happily ever after, but at a new beginning, with the sense of a lot of life yet to be lived.”
Richard Peck

“He tilts his head forward, so close that our noses actually touch, and he winds my braid around his finger. I hold my breath and try to turn off the part of my brain that insists on analyzing every situation and running it through different scenarios and outcomes before taking action. Instead I press on, determined to worry about the consequences later." Sam from WHO I KISSED.”
