My musings…

5 WHAT?!?!?! CROWNS

Ginger Scott, we are fighting.  What are you doing to me?  Why are you doing this to me?  A Boy Like Me is unbelievably amazing, and I just cannot wait for the conclusion of this story.

Joss, one of the boys, lives on the edge, hides behind a hard exterior to protect her very fragile heart, is such a fantastic young heroine.  Although she is often reckless, her behavior is a direct result of he abandonment she feels.  What is really intriguing about Joss is that she grows and evolves for the better.  She starts to feel, to depend on people, and to believe in her future.  What is the reason for the impetus? One, Wes Stokes, and, God, is Wes phenomenal.  Kind, compassionate, and protective, Wes provides Joss with everything she needs to heal and grow.  Ever understanding and patient, he loves her in the way she needs. The two of them together are just perfect!

I don’t know how to talk about this story. I don’t want to give anything away, and I’m not over the end if I am going to be honest. Let me just say this, Ginger Scott, as always, delivers an emotional story that exposes some hard truths about the human condition.  She exposes the effects of verbal abuse and ignorance, the effects of abandonment, and the effects of finding the love of someone worthy.  The evolution she takes these characters on is everything I have come to expect from Ms. Scott.  The ending, however, gutted me. Ginger Scott should have just ripped my heart out and delivered it on a silver platter, because that is what it felt like. Now, I know that might make you not want to read it, but you MUST READ it because their story isn’t over, and I just know, I believe, that Ginger Scott is going to give this story and these characters the ending they not only deserve but also an ending that will heal my shattered heart.

Ginger Scott writes with such emotion.  I feel everything these characters feel, every facet of their pain and joy. On top of all of this, Ms. Scott always portrays an accurate representation of human interaction, and her YA novels, in particular, are authentic representation of not only societal issues but also issues that plague teens.  Her voice is truly one that should be heard in the YA world.

Synopsis:

They say everyone’s a superhero to someone. I’m not sure who I’m supposed to save, but I know who saved me.

We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled mefrom death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe.

And then he disappeared.

Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has taken away my desire to dream.

I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy.

He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer, and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first saw him standing there on the baseball field, he pushed me—his eyes constantly questioning, doubting…daring. Still,  something about him—it feels…familiar.

He says his name is Wes. But I can’t help but feel like he’s someone else. Someone from my past. Someone who’s come back to save me.

This time, though, he’s too late. Josselyn Winters, the girl he once knew, is gone. I am the threat; I am my worst enemy. And he can’t save me from myself.
