Book Review: The Wanderer – Josie Williams

A massive thank you to the author, Firefly Press and Netgalley for this review copy!

**Publication Date: 7th October 2021**

The blurb from the back of the book:

Nothing can stand in the way of love, not even death. Fifteen-year-old Maggie is in foster care following the death of her mother and her grandmother’s slip into dementia. When Ryder saves her life, she can’t help but fall in love with him. The only problem is that he has been dead for five years… Unsentimental, passionate and immensely moving, The Wanderer takes a fresh look at first love and growing up.


Well, when I requested this book I was intrigued about the premise. Let’s just say, it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but what a read.

The story takes place around Ryder, a ghost wandering the earth after never moving on, and Maggie, a loner girl who has had a really hard and difficult life.

When Ryder falls in love with Maggie, he does the unthinkable, much to the distress of his best friend, Jade.

(By the way, Jade needs a book of her own. I would love to hear more about her life and her wandering days before Ryder.)

This is a book of first loves and finding yourself. I didn’t expect to get so immersed into this story. It got to the point where I actually cried (that doesn’t happen often!).

This was a quick read, but one that I enjoyed. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My name is Lisa and the pooch in my profile picture is my baby, Skye. I love everything bookish! I also find things like tarot and angel cards, along with runes and gemstones really interesting and I like to incorporate these into my photos.
