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 ne

➦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

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.

After reading A Boy Like You, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this conclusion.

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.

A Girl Like Me is unequivocally my most anticipated read of the year. After the way A Boy Like You left me hanging, I needed answers. I needed to know what would come of Josselyn and if what she suspected of Wes was true. Of course, any book by Ginger Scott leaves me full of anticipation but she's never left me with quite as many unanswered questions as she did in the first half of this duet. I couldn't wait for this sequel, for the conclusion to such an unbelievably spellbinding storyline, for ...more

After reading A Boy Like You I was left hanging on a VERY high cliff, gripping tight, anxiously waiting for the sequel and it's finally here. Bless Ginger Scott for being such an amazing friend and sharing an ARC with me. I can't even... with these books! You don't know what's going to happen from one minute to the next. You're guessing... sometimes you're right, sometimes you're wrong--other times you just don't see it coming.

"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

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.

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.

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

A GIRL LIKE ME went in a few directions I didn't expect or didn't like or.. wasn't sure about.

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.

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.

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.

This second book in LIKE US series diminishes the value of the first book, which attracted my attention and kept my interest in it all the time, hoping the mystery will be solved somehow and I would get my answers.

Buddy read/review with Tracy!

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.

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.

First things first, this is not a standalone. It's part 2 of a crazy good story - so do not pick this up without having read A Boy like you. That book ends in a monster cliffhanger, literally leaving the reader with no idea what is going on - i loved it!!! That first book had all the intrigue, the build up, the story, the little bits of romance, sports, friends, family and baggage.

Good, but not great.

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

3/3.5 Stars

That was just disappointing following the first book. There was supposed to be this element of "magic" but honestly the storyline just. didn't. fit. There were just too many things going on with this. Scott really needed to just pick one and run with it, but there were some amazing parts that I really did love.
The sequel of A Boy Like You this blends a little bit of magic and being a hero to yourself and others. Sounds confusing and a bit weird? It is, but it is so good. Without giving away the first book and this sequel, that's all I can say. It so good and worth it if you like YA or even if you don't, these high school seniors have very adult problems without the bitchy high school drama. ...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.
