I’m not supposed to be here.
Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s stood between me and my final breath.
I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as if I didn’t need any more saving.
This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.
Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I shouldn’t.
The world thinks he’s missing.
His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.
Only I know just how special he is.
I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together, we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.
And when the bad guys come calling, we will always win.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘A GIRL LIKE ME’ by Ginger Scott:
*May contain some small Spoilers if you haven’t read the previous novel of the Like Us Series.*
A Girl Like Me is the second novel of the Like Us Series by the wonderful author Ginger Scott. This series is definitely different than previous work by Ginger Scott but also similar in some ways. How it’s similar: We get to enjoy a heartwarming romance with a coming-of-age feel and sports is involved. Gotta’ love it! 🙂 How it’s unique from her other work: You WILL miss out on an extraordinary read if you turn away because of what’s different about it. This novel has the contemporary romance and coming-of-age feel, but it blends it with a little taste of sci-fi, beautifully and masterfully. This series, both books 1 and 2, are mind-blowing and emotionally-captivating. This novel is a part of the Young Adult genre and is a Contemporary Romance, but as I said in my previous review of the first novel in the Like Us Series, these novels surpass those general genres with an amazing storyline. A Girl Like Me is written from the main character’s P.O.V.(Point of view), Josselyn “Joss” Winters.
Josselyn Winters has set off on a road trip with her long time friend Kyle with two main goals in mind. The first is to go to Arizona and visit her maternal-grandmother, whom she never really knew since she was estranged from her mother. Joss goes in search of some kind of peace for herself and for a past filled with questions unanswered since childhood. What she finds may be more than she could’ve ever expected about her past, her mother, and the strength she may get from seeking that closure.
The second reason Joss sets off is to search for Wes who went missing after saving her life. Wes’s adoptive family have begun to make peace with the fact that he may be dead. They’re heartbroken but Josselyn is determined to find him. She can’t shake this feeling that he’s alive especially since she’s been receiving cryptic messages from him. What will she find? Will Josselyn believe everything she finds out or is it all a strange mystery that will never make real sense? And we find out the answer to the biggest question in this series: What happened to Wes and will everything be explained?
When Josselyn’s life becomes this twisted whirlwind of events, how will she handle it all? And who is the suspicious threat has been lurking lately? There are so many questions, but they all get answered. A Girl Like Me is a riveting and incredible novel that brings you full-circle in a Josselyn and Wes’s world. The characters are perfection and even the supporting characters were well-written. I highly recommend this impressively-stunning novel and series! Make sure to add “A Boy Like You” and “A Girl Like Me” to your TBR list today! They are worth the read, for sure! ❤
