Have You Lost Me?

Hello blog land! I totally disappeared there, didn't I???

It's been crazy busy in these parts with school and grads and writing stuff, and now I'm on summer holiday mode! I have some blog catching up to do, but will be travelling to Edmonton for swim championships and then off to the mountains! So blogging is on a short break!


HOW I LOST YOU has been out in the world for a while now. I had my book signing in Calgary and last week in Winnipeg. Fun! Some reviews have come in too! Check it out...

How I Lost You Reviews.
“…the novel explores female friendships in a thought-provoking way. The paintball plotline adds a unique angle, as does the presence of a third close friend who happens to be a guy. There's no hurt quite like best friend hurt, and that's something Gurtler captures well.”  Booklist.

 “This is a relatable story about nurturing a friendship, and it's not every day that teens will have the chance to read about paintballing. The lesson that Grace learns is a good one, and the strong female characters are a plus…”  School Library Journal

“Gurtler gracefully negotiates the powerful emotions that accompany a changing friendship and brings the game of paintball to life with fascinating detail.”  Publisher’s Weekly

I'll be around on Twitter (@janetgurtler) and on Facebook and you can find my email on my website so if you need to chat you know where to find me!!
In the meantime, have a GREAT SUMMER! See you soon!
