16 Things I Thought Were True by Janet Gurtler Cover Reveal

Book Nerd Cover Reveal

Heart attacks happen to other people #thingsIthoughtweretrue

When Morgan's mom gets sick, it's hard not to panic. Without her mother, she would have no one—until she finds out the dad who walked out on her as a baby isn't as far away as she thought...

Adam is a stuck-up, uptight jerk #thingsIthoughtweretrue

Now that they have a summer job together, Morgan's getting to know the real Adam, and he's actually pretty sweet...in a nerdy-hot kind of way. He even offers to go with her to find her dad. Road trip, anyone?

5000 Twitter followers are all the friends I need #thingsIthoughtweretrue

With Adam in the back seat, a hyper chatterbox named Amy behind the wheel, and plenty of Cheetos to fuel their trip, Morgan feels ready for anything. She's not expecting a flat tire, a missed ferry, a fake girlfriend...and that these two people she barely knew before the summer started will become the people she can't imagine living without.

#16 Things I Thought Were True will be releasing on March 4, 2014 by Sourcebooks Fire.

Like all of us, I am different things to different people. Mom. Sister. Auntie. Wife. Daughter. Cousin. Friend. And I love all of my roles especially Mom, but at the end of the day, when I am all alone with myself drifting off to sleep, I am Writer.

My road to author was a little windy. While in college, I worked as a DJ in a night club. I like to tell people that because it makes me sound cooler than I am. After college I worked as an advertising copywriter for radio and then TV and eventually was lured over to sales and marketing. I missed writing though and years later (always a late bloomer was I) after having my son, I started my first book. I've been writing books ever since and once I started writing YA, found like I'd found my way home.

I can block out almost anything when I'm deep inside a story. Writing one or reading one. Books continue to be something I turn to when I'm happy or sad or tired or wide awake. You get the picture right :-)

Two Random Janet Gurtler facts.
