Review: Milledgeville Misfit by T.L. Gray

Fourteen-year old Juniper "Junebug" Summerville loses her parents and her ability to talk in a car accident. Against her silent protests, she is sent to live in a remote swampland infamous for its ghosts, federal prison and insane asylum.
As Junebug struggles with her emotional scars, she begins to heal with help from six other orphans at Dearborn, a once famous Milledgeville Plantation. Just as she begins to enjoy the peace she’s long desired, she finds herself in a fight for her sanity when she stumbles upon a tear in the fabric that separates the possible from the impossible, and she must choose which to believe.
Milledgeville Misfit is a young adult novel that deals with grief and healing, and has an ending that leaves the reader with the choice of what to believe.
This was a different kind of story than I expected it to be. It is an easy read. There are some twists to the plot, ʺI never saw that comingʺ kind of storyline. I liked the main character and her ghostly friends. A cute story dealing with love, loss and everything in between. I guess it's true that people handle grief & stress in all different ways. Whatever helps you get through it. The important thing is that you do get through all of lives little curve balls. Realizing that when you come out on the other side, you are a better person for it. It's a nice little story. If you are looking for a different, quick change up then this is the book for you. Enjoy!
