Genre: YA/ Fantasy/ Coming of Age

Synopsis:

Blackness. Nothingness. It was in the shape of a giant, hazy shadow, enveloping me, swallowing me, and digesting me into the unknown. It was my biggest fear and my ultimate fate.

Shy, thirteen-year-old Zylia has always known she was different. Most teenagers feel unnoticed and unseen, but for Zylia, it’s something much worse. She’s disappearing from this world and doesn’t know how to stop it. At times, she’s not sure she wants to. Until she stumbles across a family mystery surrounding the disappearance of her great-aunt Angelica years earlier. During her quest to unravel the mystery, Zylia discovers she’s able to cross the boundary and enter the “in between” world. Now, it’s up to Zylia to save herself before she’s trapped “in between” forever.

Excerpt #1

I did my best to fight and claw my way back to the life I once knew, but panic had taken over and colors were swirling and fading all around me. It was all turning into a great cloud of blackness, just like the one I had seen in my dream. The looming cloud of nothingness I had feared for so long was finally grabbing me, wiping my world dark and blank.

The darkness was thick and intense, an inky void that stretched to eternity in every direction. Eventually my panic burnt itself out and I simply stayed there in the dark, feeling as if someone had drained my adrenal glands. I was no longer responding to the dark with fear, but acceptance. In fact, curiosity was beginning to take over.

The longer I let myself stare into it, the less dark it appeared. After some time, I realized that it was all different shades of murky black and foggy gray overlapping and undulating, just out of focus. I blinked mentally and suddenly she was there, standing above me with concern etched in sooty-colored lines on her monochromatic face.”

Review: Just WOW! This was such an amazing story that was filled with intensity and really touched on important issues that many of us face like low self-esteem, anxiety, loneliness and just feeling completely invisible. I could relate to Zylia in so many ways and my heart was doing flip flops because the author was able to describe her emotions so well. I was stunned at the descriptions in this book and found myself totally captivated by the storyline.

I rooted for Zylia and I turned pages as fast as possible to see the outcome. The Shadow Girl by Misty Mount was truly breathtaking and one of the most incredible books I have ever read! In so many ways, I was Zylia and I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a coming of the age masterpiece. Thank you so much Reads & Reels Blog Tours & Misty Mount for this amazing work of art!

  1. I had already added this book to my to read list when I saw it starting to appear on both your’s and Didi’s blog.

  2. Interesting. Coming of age would be the furthest from my mind looking at the cover, I’d guess more of something creepy. Definitely wasn’t expecting a young character and the actual storyline.
