Our Review

“I sold my soul to the devil to save an angel.” 

Ghostgirl is our favourite JB Salsbury book to date, no question. We love when an Author takes the plunge into writing something different, writes the story they want to write and takes a chance whilst believing in themselves. When an Author does exactly that, the reader feels their heart and soul threaded into the words.

‘Who knew I’d have such a bleeding heart for the freaky girl.’

This was a highly emotional dark romance with elements of old-school in a new and original style. We absolutely loved Milo and Mercy’s heartbreaking story and found it utterly compelling. Each of them had a journey to make; both coming from tragedy trying to find the light.

‘No matter where I end up, whatever obstacles I face, I will always remember what I am.’

Mercy is an enigma; where has she come from and what hell has she lived through? The snippets from her past had our hearts breaking and fearing for her truth. Mercy is different, a gentle innocent honest soul who’s very being has been destroyed by a power and money hungry evil. Her battles are just beginning and it’ll take someone incredibly special to find the truth, find the angel behind the pain and hurt. If we’re told that we are something often enough, eventually we’ll start believing it ourselves. Masked in deceptive brainwashing; evil thrives.

“Do you know what it’s like to live your whole life being told you’re one thing, only to find out later that…you’re not?”

Milo and his younger brothers are living in foster care. He has a plan, a plan for a better life for his brothers, as far away from the gang he grew up in and his manipulative father. He wants nothing to do with the violent and criminal life which took his Mum away. Sometimes what we want and what we get are two different things.

‘I’m the school’s charity case, the twenty year old senior, the gang member- only got to wipe the floor…’

Milo is intrigued yet dismissive at first when his foster parents bring home a girl who is like no other. She behaves and looks like nothing he’s ever seen or experienced before. Little by little, Mercy wins Milo’s attention and heart, however, this was never going to be a walk in the park when you have one Hispanic tattooed ex gang member and one ‘child like’ ethereal innocent who’s been forcibly removed from ordinary society her whole life.

‘He made me believe in things like hope.’

We completely and utterly devoured this book in one sitting, unable to look away as JB Salsbury wowed us with a story and characters written with such vivid imagery, such depth and incredible honesty, emotion and realism. This is definitely a favourite of 2018! We do wish though that we’d known there was a second book to come as we would’ve waited to read them together in one serious reading binge, however, without spoiling it let’s just say we weren’t left in a crying heap on the floor. Though we have a feeling it’ll break us once more!

‘My kind is desired by many, but when caught, seldom kept alive.’ 

“What did they do to you?”

 

Synopsis

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.
