Y’all, I haven’t read a ghost story in years. Fear Street or another R.L. Stein book might have been the last one I read. So, I was very excited for The Forgotten Girl (plus @booksandbighair is one of my favorite bookish, planner-loving humans). And it did NOT disappoint.
I could not put this book down and devoured it in a day. Not only was it beautifully written with compelling and real characters that I fell in love with, The Forgotten Girl also taught me about segregation and forgotten cemeteries.
The Forgotten Girl is the exact book I wished I’d had growing up, and I can’t wait to tuck it away for my kids to read in a few years.
