New Release with Review: Ghostgirl by J.B Salsbury

June 19, 2018

“Ghostgirl is so unbelievably unique. I was captivated through each and every page. I can’t wait for more!”  - Harper Sloan, NYT Bestselling Author

"Milo and Mercy took my heart! Such a unique and refreshing story from JB Salsbury! Ghostgirl is now my favorite from her and one of my favorites of all time!" 
--Tijan, NYT Bestselling Author 


She was brainwashed into believing she could save mankind.
Now, she’s the one who needs saving. 

Abandoned with his two younger brothers, Milo Vega was placed in foster care. Now a twenty-year-old high-school senior covered in gang tattoos and working as the school’s janitor, he is living a life vastly different from the one he was destined for. 

When another foster joins the family, this one from the psychiatric facility, Milo’s skeptical. A rare genetic condition makes her unlike any girl he’s ever seen, and he wants nothing to do with the one he calls Ghostgirl.

Despite his reluctance, his protective instincts flare when she enrolls in school, and eventually, an unlikely friendship grows between them. When a tragic event snaps her fragile psyche, Milo is faced with the possibility of never seeing her again. 

Unless he risks it all to save her.

Talk about being out of my comfort zone!!! I loved that this was remarkably different with an intense need of wanting to know more. The characters, the setting, the writing, everything was just different and it felt like a breath of cool air on a warm summer night. Ghost girl is a unique YA story that made me fall deeply in love with the power of the unknown. 

Milo Vega has been through the ringer in the past few years in his personal life. Going in the system along with his younger brothers into foster care, was no easy feat but they made it. Now three years later and finally being able to graduate high school, Milo can now feel like his head is above water. With a plan in place to adopt his younger siblings after graduation, things cannot be any better for the Vega brothers. But things are about to get complicated when a new foster girl arrives and she’s unlike anything he’s ever seen before.

Mercy is a uniquely extraordinary girl. Being called different and special her entire life, was a blessing and a curse to her. Now in foster care with some memory loss, Mercy is now trying to fit in and be a normal teenager. But that’s going to be extremely difficult based on her looks and her having a problem being around more than person. Little does she know, her temporary family is going to be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Particularly Milo Vega.

Let me just get this one thing out of the way and say how much I freakin loved Milo!!!!! I feel like I need to write that in all caps or scream it from the rooftops because that man? Was fucking AWESOME! I loved the fact that story was mostly told in his pov so we knew every emotion he was feeling and let me tell you, I was right there with him. My only complaint was that I felt like he wasn’t pushed enough and I wanted to see more of his past life but I think this author is going to give us our wish in book two. 

If you’re looking for an extremely different young adult romance, then this one is for you.

Please note: this is part one of a two part series.
