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.
*I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*
I fell in love with Joss and Wes in A Boy Like You, and completely fell over the edge for them in A Girl Like Me. While Joss was not easy to connect with in the first part, in the second part, she fully convinced me. Gone was the girl angry at the world, not caring about anything. The young woman we now get to see is of a whole new caliber. Her determination, the fight she has in her, I love that about Joss.
Wes this time made it a bit more difficult for me. Our knight in shining armour lost some of his shine. It’s that slow realization that he is still only human, no matter how amazing he seems, and the things he can do. Making mistakes, feeling lost, it makes him more tangible.
Joss and Wes finding their way back to each other is not easy, filled with obstacles coming from left and right. You honestly never know what is going to happen next. All you know is that Joss loves Wes, and Wes loves Joss, which is all that matters.
I’m very happy Ginger Scott allowed us to follow Joss and Wes’s story. Two extraordinary teenagers, with a fascinating journey. The special twist to the story is what sets it apart, and I loved that. A Girl Like Me and A Boy Like You are books that will stay with me for a long time.
