Ghostgirl is such an amazing story. The storyline is unique and captivating. I honestly have never read anything like this book before.
I continue to be amazed at J.B. Salsbury’s creative mind. Her books are some of my favorite books. I loved her Fighting Series, but her standalone novels have totally knocked it out of the park. Each on has been completely different from each other or any other book for that fact.
This review is going to be very vague, mostly just focusing on my feelings while reading the book, and pretty short. I can’t talk about the storyline at all, because I don’t want to say something that could spoil any part of this story. What I will say is that this book is that it is told in Dual POV, but mostly from Milo’s POV. It is told mostly in the present tense but we do get some flashbacks throughout the story. Those help fill in the backstory.
This book will have your heart beat racing and mind running. As you read this story you will have so many questions, and yes they are answered in this book, but new ones arise by the end. No this book technically doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, because I felt what happened in this book was settled and answers were given. But it does leave you wanting more. So I would say this is a To Be Continued ending. Mercy and Milo’s story will continue and I can’t wait to see what happens. I don’t believe that you need to wait for the next book to come out. This is one you can enjoy now!!!
I want to say this book is a cross between a Young Adult and New Adult romance. Milo is 20 years old, but is still a Senior in high school. You’ll understand more when you read this book. Mercy is also in high school. This storyline takes place in a high school setting and I would say that it is mostly clean. I will tell you there is some kissing scenes and some talk of sex, but the sex line is not crossed. So I guess, read this book and decide for yourself how you’d label it. I just know I will label it a MUST READ!!!
I honestly can’t rave enough about this book. It had everything I look for in a 5 star read!! One of the best books of 2018 for me. This is definitely a book you don’t want to miss reading. Don’t wait….READ this book NOW. I don’t think you will be sorry.
The tagline on the cover of GHOSTGIRL is the perfect description. It sums up a book, that is almost impossible to give justice with words in one sentence.
I'm going to do the best I can to explain what this book meant to me, without giving away any spoilers. ;)
Mercy's life as she knows it changes in the blink of an eye when she wakes up in a psychiatric facility. Questions come to fast, and answers she gives make it obvious that she was not raised in a traditional sense. Being led to believe she's something much more than the "ordinary" girl she truly is. Her outward appearance, though beautiful, is different. So when she winds up at a foster home that includes three other fosters whom have problems of their own, her world is flipped upside down and life lessons of the everyday teenager come at her faster than she can sometimes handle. She wants to blend in, wants to belong, but beliefs and teaching ingrained in her from childhood keep knocking at her mental door.
Milo, the eldest of the three boys at the same foster home is son to a notorious Latin American gang leader. The one who should rise up to be the next "king." But when opportunity strikes, and he's able to free his brothers from the chains that bind him to the life, he takes it. Which means it's time to clean up his act and set the example for his younger siblings. That's how Milo Vega ends up a twenty-year-old high school senior, covered in tats, and working as the school janitor. Gotta do what ya gotta do, right?
Ok, so here's the skinny... When you take these two, Milo and Mercy, two souls - VERY unlikely to ever cross paths in reality, what happens is nothing short of divine intervention. This book isn't just a story. It's a journey of learning and healing and breaking down walls that both of them have built. It's incorporating themselves into a world neither ever thought they would live in, and following rules that hadn't applied before. On this journey, Mercy and Milo hit a lot of bumps, but to see these two work through friendship and eventually find love is an experience that will leave your heart pounding and hope rising.
It's beautiful and honest and when put to the test, it withstands the beatings. I hope if you're reading this review, you'll go and grab this book, because I can guarantee, that you'll be getting something you haven't read before, and when you finish, you'll be rooting for this couple and begging for more.
