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
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.

Wow. Someone give Ginger Scott an award for best sequel or duet – something! She deserves it. I don’t think I could have imagined a more rewarding conclusion to the Like Us Duet than what she gave us in A Girl Like Me. I knew it would be epic after reading A Boy Like You. I just didn’t know how epic.
A Girl Like Me picks up where A Boy Like You left off. All of our favorite characters are back. Joss is setting out to search for Wes. She’s still the snarky, attitude giving girl she was in the first book. She’s matured a bit, but hasn’t lost any of her fire. Wes is still…missing. Joss’ friends and family are still amazing, and they’re determined to help her find all the answers she’s looking for. Kyle is especially helpful in Joss’ search for Wes (and deserves his own book). And that’s all I’m telling you because I’m not ruining this book for anyone!
I absolutely loved this book. I devoured it, even when I wanted to savor every moment. A Girl Like Me was everything I expected it to be and more. More because I couldn’t have imagined some of the surprises it had in store. Each new revelation blew my mind. Many hit me emotionally, and I found myself holding back tears several times. It broke my heart so many times, and yet, it always put it back together. I don’t think I’ve experienced a book quite like this before. If you loved A Boy Like You, you’re going to be mesmerized by A Girl Like Me.
