If You Find Me (YA)
Book #13 Read in 2014
If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch (YA)
This book will break your heart but you will not be able to put it down. Carey was kidnapped by her mentally ill mother at a young age. She practically raised her younger sister and will do anything to protect her. As a teenager, her father finds them and brings them to his home. Carey begins high school and realizes that she knows nothing of "normal" life. The things she endured in her mother's trailer may keep her from ever feeling truly normal. Can she get past her horrible history?
Carey and her younger sister Jenessa will immediately grab the hearts of readers. Their stepmother Melissa is wonderful. This book is young adult realistic fiction that blends a compelling plot with a young romance. I recommend it.
