A Boy Like You by Ginger Scott


Release Date: 03.03.2017



Synopsis:

They say everyone’s a superhero to someone. I’m not sure who I’m supposed to save, but I know who saved me. 

We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled me from death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe.

And then he disappeared. 

Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has taken away my desire to dream. 

I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy. 

He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer, and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first saw him standing there on the baseball field, he pushed me—his eyes constantly questioning, doubting…daring. Still, something about him—it feels…familiar. 

He says his name is Wes. But I can’t help but feel like he’s someone else. Someone from my past. Someone who’s come back to save me.

This time, though, he’s too late. Josselyn Winters, the girl he once knew, is gone. I am the threat; I am my worst enemy. And he can’t save me from myself.


Review:



I won't sugar coat this for you...A Boy Like you is heartbreaking but also beautiful and intriguing. 
I have finished to read this book a couple days ago and when I think about it I'm still a mess.

Joss and Wes' journey was unique and surprising,it kept me on edge from beginning to end.
Joss doesn't have an easy life,she is on the road of self destruction until she met Wes that gives her some hope becoming her invincible Superhero.
Wes is a good but mysterious guy that conquered the heroine (and me) at first sight.

Ginger Scott has once again outdone herself,this YA novel is amazing and one of my favorite.I always appreciate her writing and her way to interwine the main charaters lives with those of the supporting characters making every little interaction count.
