Read The Girl in Between Online Free - I'm invisible. Ma says I'm supposed to be so the Authorities don't get me. She goes out into the streets almost every day but I'm not allowed. I've got to stay inside the mill so they don't see me.
In an old, abandoned mill, a girl and her ma take shelter from their memories of life on the streets, and watch the busy world go by. The girl calls it the Castle because it's the biggest place they've ever stayed, a home of her own like no other. The windows are boarded up and the floorboards are falling in but for her neither of those things matter.
Then developers show up, and it's clear that their lives are about to change forever. Desperate to save their refuge from the Authorities and her mother from her own personal demons, the girl seeks out the ghosts of the mill. And with only Caretaker the old man who's slept outside the mill for decades around to answer her questions, she begins to wonder what kind of ghosts are haunting both the mill and her mother.

Actual rating: 2.5*'s.
I'm incredibly mixed in my rating...
This book is confusing to say the least - I have to say that even after finishing it I'm still extremely perplexed and confused as to what actually happened. I understand the "twist" and all, but before that I'm not exactly sure. I don't...

Wow. That ending was not what I expected at all. This story started off slow, but once I got about halfway things started picking up. I had no idea I would be so surprised with the ending. I was a little confused as to what was going on throughout, but the conclusion clears up all that...

Thanks to the #kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book - all opinions are my own.

I'll be honest with you. I'm confused as heck about the ending of this book.
(view spoiler)[The writing makes it seem one way, and then another way, but if it's the one way, then there are plenty of other events that get thrown out of whack.. (hide spoiler)]
I don't know. I just know that I liked it until I got confused. xD

This was a very interesting read and even now, weeks after finishing it, I am finding a hard time collecting my thoughts.

I enjoyed most of this and it was an interesting look at poverty, homelessness, and addiction. I really liked how it was written (and it's a quick and easy read), but honestly the twist at the end ruined it a bit for me.

A very well written thought provoking book . I read it in one sitting. Very authentic voice and novel way of looking at big issues such as homelessness and drug/alcohol abuse
