Blog Tour: How I Lost You

First off, Thank you to JeanBook Nerd for letting me join in this tour! You can check out the other tour stops HERE!

How I Lost You

Author: Janet Gurtler

Publication Date: April 23, 2013



There are a few things Grace Anderson knows for sure. One is that nothing will ever come between her and her best friend, Kya Kessler. They have a pact. Buds Before Studs. Sisters Before Misters. But in the summer before senior year, life throws out challenges they never expected. And suddenly the person who's always been there starts to need the favor returned. Grace and Kya are forced to question how much a best friend can forgive. And the answer is not what they expected.


Excerpt from How I Lost You 

I will happily join you in a Ben & Jerry’s binge to make you feel better,” Dad said.
Ice cream with breakfast might be good,” I answered.
I am here to make these sorts of sacrifices for my family,” Dad said, jumping up. “Red Velvet, Chunky Monkey, and Vanilla.”
Mom swatted his butt as he got up to go on his mission. “Vanilla?” she asked, as if it were a surprise after all these years.
I like my ice cream the way I like my women,” Dad said. “Plain and simple.”
Then why the hell did you marry me?” Mom winked at him.
Because for every rule, there is an exception. I’m off to the freezer. Monkey pancakes a la mode.”
We watched him leave. “We’re here for you, Grace,” Mom said.
I know.”


Janet lives near the Canadian Rockies with her husband and son and a little dog named Bruce. She does not live in an Igloo or play hockey, but she does love maple syrup and says “eh” a lot. 

Janet only gives 5 stars to the books she reviews because she is an author herself and knows that no book can appeal to everyone, but like a child, it is very special to the creator.
