JANET GURTLER'S THE WEIGHT OF BONES TO SOURCEBOOKS!

I am thrilled to announce that Janet Gurtler's THE WEIGHT OF BONES will be a lead title for SOURCEBOOKS FIRE in Spring 2011!

Janet Gurtler's THE WEIGHT OF BONES, a twist on MY SISTER'S KEEPER for teens, in which a brainy high school freshman embraces yet resents the shadow of her beautiful, popular,volleyball-scholarship-bound sister. But when the senior is diagnosed with bone cancer, it drastically changes both sisters' lives.

Janet Gurtler is an amazing writer and THE WEIGHT OF BONES is one of those books that grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go. This is not a book of sappy emotion but a story of surprising plot twists and realistic characters that you will long remember after reading the last page.

Many of you know Janet as J. E. MacLeod, author of WAITING TO SCORE (Westside Books) - a 2010 Bank Street Books Best Books of the Year . On WAITING TO SCORE...
"MacLeod ... displays a knack for getting readers genuinely
invested in her characters' lives and difficult decisions, many of which teens
will recognize from their own experiences."

Booklist

"While there is plenty of hot action on the ice, WAITING TO SCORE is far less a sports action book than I had assumed it would be. This is foremost a realistic story of teens learning to fit in and survive, and author JE MacLeod does a stellar job of probing every one of Zack's interpersonal relationships..." Richie's Picks


Look for THE WEIGHT OF BONES to hit bookshelves in April 2011!

CONGRATS, JANET!
