A Girl Like Me
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 ne ...more
➦If you are a fan of sports romances and stories with paranormal elements then this YA novel might just be your jam. It has somewhat an elaborate plot and character development with a touch of baseball on the side. Oh, and don't forget the mysteriousness, which will keep you guessing all the way throughout.
➦As mentioned in my review of the first book in this duet, the heroine encounters a boy who has once saved her life. I really am not going to go into any detail in fear of giving spoilers, so ...more

When we get a Ginger Scott book it's a sure bet that it will be something different, something that will put your heart through an emotional meat grinder. It will be deliciously angsty and you will want to talk about it with your book bestie.
The story continues right where the first in this duet ended. Joss is on her way to look for Wes and to visit her grandmother Grace in Arizona to learn more about her mom. On this journey she ...more

HEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]
After reading A Boy Like You, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this conclusion. The cliffy at the end of book one left me desperate for explanations about this very unique and beautifully crafted story. Ginger kept me on my toes, making me brainstorm theories around every corner. Just when I thought I had an element pegged, she turned around and threw a new ...more

5+ "You sure you can't fly?" Stars
Absolute perfection from Ginger Scott. My favorite of hers to date. This is book 2 of a contemporary, young adult, duet and must read after book one. There's a magical quality to the writing, the characters, the romance, and the plot, woven through the pages that you'll fall in love with from the very start.
Due to the distinctly unique nature of this sports/romance/young adult story, this r ...more

"You defy science."
I was really looking forward to this book with only a little trepidation that it was going to fall down the rabbit hole into the paranormal realm. And unfortunately, my intuition wasn't off...not by a long shot.
Let me explain...if I knew there was a paranormal aspect going in to the first book, I think I would have been more accepting. I really enjoy Wes and Joss and was pulling for them all the way. However, not knowing that, the story took on a kind of comic book fe ...more
After the ending of A Boy Like You left me for dead, I was dying to get my hands on the sequel to see what would happen next. There were so many questions floating around in my head and I just wanted answers to all of them. I was also curious to see if any of my theories would end up being true because some of them felt like a long shot, but I was secretly hoping things would pan out the way I wanted them to.
A Girl Like Me picks up where A ...more
Waiting for one of your most anticipated books can be stressful. You wander around the authors Facebook page, maybe even in their group, anxious for little teasers or even a mini excerpt. You bite your nails, possibly even start drinking while your stomach whirls, nervous about what's to come.
A Boy Like You surpassed all my hopes and waiting for A Girl Like Me was HARD, but WOW, was it worth it. Magical, mystical, with twists and so many unexpected turns, Ginger Scott gives you a ...more
*ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*
After the thousand questions A Boy Like You left behind, I can easily say that this was one of my most anticipated books of 2017, but it even exceeded all my expectations. Ginger Scott was able to wove together this story so perfectly and cleverly that it absolutely blew me away.
At the end of A Boy Like You a circle closed and a boy and a hero had lost. In A Gi ...more
I've had a busy few week and I'm so glad I finally got to finish this book. I didn't love it as much as the first one but I still loved it!
I'm a huge fan of Ginger Scotts books! Can't wait for more new releases!
I'd also love to get a book on Wes's brothers and Kyle because I loved them just as much as Joss and Wess:)) ...more
This is the second book in the Like Us series, the follow up to the emotional, dramatic and surprising A Boy Like You. I loved the first book, Joss and Wes’ story was sweet, romantic and unexpected with lots of twists and turns, and I was left with so many questions after I finished it. This book jumps right back into the story (though I found that I did have to go back to the first book to remind myself of some of the details), and the emotion is instantly intense as we finally get som ...more
I found the beginning kind of confusing. I was left uncertain as to where Scott was going with everything. But then.. some of that went away. Things were getting better. Events were calming down; until they weren't.
Yes, this is all going to be the vaguest of vague, because there's so little I can say that won't ruin this duet for new readers.
I don't want to totally rehash my rant to a book buddy (hi R ...more
Wow the waiting was so worth it...A Girl Like Me is an amazing read.
Ginger Scott wrote a sequel as good and as engaging as the first book,the emotional roller-coaster that characterized A Boy Like You is still there and it kept me on my toes from the start to the very end.
Even if the author didn't explain some things I think that is not important because I focused my attention on the power of resilience,that is all human,of our heroine Joss.
I fell for Wes in the first book but I loved Joss in t

Josselyn Winters might seem to be the picture-perfect damsel in distress, but she is strong. Life has thrown her one heart-achingly bad break after another, and she never taps out.

There has never been a Ginger Scott book that disappointed me. Every book she writes just slays and I can’t help but be obsessed with them. A Girl Like Me contained a unique pull, a palpable plot that will leave every reader either breathless from the suspense, or panting for more.
He’s breaking me just by being, and it isn’t fair.
It’s not everyday that a reader like me encounter characters like Wes and Jos. There’s a unique st ...more
“I promised you I would tell you everything I could, but some things might be better left in boxes.”
After the ending of A Boy Like You I was totally confused, but in a good way. My mind was running a mile a minute with what ifs, buts and maybes. My mind was a jumble of trying to piece together what was going on and in what direction Ginger Scott would take this. A Girl Like Me is not what I was expecting, but I loved it anyways and ...more
This is the second book in the Like Us series which follows Joss and Wes. This is not a standalone so you must read A Boy Like You, which everyone should because this is such a special series. I’m going to try my best to avoid spoilers since I think the mystery is half the fun of this book, but I’m disclosing the warning that this review will have spoilers from the first book.
So the book starts off where book one left us with Wes missing, presumed dead. However, Joss knows in her hear ...more
But, alas... this one is a failure, not providing answers or closure.
My review for both books in the series is here:
A Girl Like Me by Author Ginger Scott is book two in the Like Us Duet. It is not a standalone and should only be read after A Boy Like You.
"...you’ll never be at peace until you’ve turned over every rock in your journey.”
When I began reading A Girl Like Me, I was already on edge, pondering what was to come and hopeful that my what I conjured in my mind from book one was possible. I felt like I had prepared myself for whatever the outcome, but I had not.
"I am the girl who wan ...more
Ginger left us with a cliffhanger in the first Like Us book, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one.
Like Tracy, I was counting down the days to finally learn the fate of Wes and Joss. A Boy Like You was gut wrenching, and I was desperate to finally see the follow up story. I wasn’t a huge fan of Kyle in Boy, but he completely won me over this one. His devotion to Joss is so heartwarming. He matures and he is the unwavering support Joss needed.
Actual rating of 4.5 stars! I love Ms. Scott's characters and how humanly imperfect she makes them, but more importantly the personal growth she has them undergo throughout the course of the story. (In two books as is the case with this particular duolog ...more
Wow what an amazing conclusion to an amazing story. A Girl Like Me picks up pretty much where a Boy Like You finished and these books MUST be read in order.
I won't get into the story but I will say that Scott answers all our questions and wraps the duet up very nicely with A Girl Like Me. The characters are as intriguing and complex as ever - as is their whole story. I personally wish that some of the drama had been taken out or even j ...more
This sequel is a massive amount of aftermath of all of it!!!! Overall when I put the 2 books together I thought it w ...more
I absolutely loved the first book in this duet (A Boy Like You) and was so excited for the story to continue in this book. I knew the author was setting up something on the paranormal side- which I generally don't have that much of an issue with, but I don't think it really worked here. I feel like it almost distracted from the story. I also felt like there was a little too much going on in this book (suspense, paranormal, romance, new amputee, girl power and loads of family ...more
A Girl Like Me is one of my highly anticipated sequels of this year. I've been dying to read this book since I finished the first book which was concluded with a huge cliffhanger. I was so excited when I finally got my hands on this book because all the mysteries are finally going to revealed in it. This book has so many surprising twists that I never saw coming and boy, I absolutely enjoyed devouring it.

“Don’t be afraid,” he says, his nose grazing along the side of mine.
“I’m not…not really. I just want you to know that you, that this…” I say, stumbling with my words.
“I know,” Wes says for me. “It’s like for once we’re in charge and this is exactly how our story is supposed to go.”
“I’m yours,” he says, his head falling against mine.
“Yeah?” I ask.
“Yeah,” he says. “I’ll be the reason you wake up smiling. ...more
