What would you do if you faded into the shadows? – Shadow Girl Book Review

Hey there!

I’m back with another book review.

I was sent a copy via email of The Shadow Girl by Misty Mount from Shannon Q. I hadn’t read a book like this before so when I read the blurb I was pretty excited to read it.

So…a brief synopsis of this book:

Zylia lives at home with her family and is a teenager. She goes to the local school and her grandmother also lives at home with them. But Zylia is no ordinary teenager, something has been happening to her that is very unusually. She’s started disappearing from people’s memory. She goes about her daily life but remains unnoticed by her family, school mates and those around her except for her twin sister Ivy and her Grandmother.

I’d recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy or young adult fiction or anyone who is looking for something unusual to read. I did enjoy reading this book but I would have liked it to be a little more fast paced and I think that would have happened if there was little more dialogue and less narration. I loved hearing the parts of the narration that showcased Zylia’s thoughts and feelings.

I also liked how we got to meet all the family and we could see their personalities and how different they all were. I really liked how her Grandmother, who has dementia, could see her but also wasn’t sure of who she was.

One of the best parts about this book is that it dealt with such an unusual theme but yet it incorporated other important, day to day themes into it. These included bullying, young love and friendship. I like that

I hope you enjoyed my review.

Until next time,

Girl Masked

    I am trying to expand my TBR list, and this book sounds like a fascinating and unusual read! I know what you mean about needing more dialogue over narrative sometimes, but it sounds like the insights into the protagonists mind were really fascinating! I’m definitely going to add this to my TBR.
