A Girl Like Me by Ginger Scott
Book 2 in the Like Us Duet
A mature YA romance, and a little something more…
Release day: May 26
4 Suspenseful CROWNS
The conclusion of the Like Us duet is laced with suspense and edge-of-your seat revelations. The paranormal aspects of the book were unexpected, but these preternatural aspects of the character will appeal to lovers of this trope. For those readers who do not love the supernatural aspects, Ginger Scott still provides a fulfilling conclusion to book one.
Joss is still the stubborn and willful girl readers meet in book one. She has an immeasurable strength that not only pushes her to meet her goals but overcome immeasurable obstacles, which she will need in spades in A Girl Like Me. Wes’s character undergoes significant character development as unknown attributes of his are revealed. These two undergo a considerable amount of strife throughout this book, and, as a result, they grow and evolve becoming stronger and closer as a couple.
This story is riddled with angst and suspense. With each revelation, the readers are thrown into the story and gripped, waiting to find out how it is all going to play out. There are spots that are slow paced, but the story quickly picks up and as soon as it does, the story takes off, making readers race to find out the conclusion. The resolution of the story is perfect, and it provides that characters with an HEA they have most certainly earned.
As with all Ginger Scott books, A Girl Like Me is written well with interesting characters and intriguing story-line. Although the super-natural aspects of the story didn’t appeal to me as a reader, it is still a entertaining read, and provides the conclusion I was dying for at the end of A Boy Like You.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
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.

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 me from 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.
