This week's book is a brand new psychological drama/mystery/family story called If You Find Me written by Emily Murdoch.
There are some things you
can't leave behind... A broken-down camper hidden deep in a national
forest is the only home fifteen year-old Carey can remember. The trees
keep guard over her threadbare existence, with the one bright spot being
Carey's younger sister, Jenessa, who depends on Carey for her very
survival. All they have is each other, as their mentally ill mother
comes and goes with greater frequency. Until that one fateful day their
mother disappears for good, and two strangers arrive. Suddenly, the
girls are taken from the woods and thrust into a bright and perplexing
new world of high school, clothes and boys. Now, Carey must face the
truth of why her mother abducted her ten years ago, while haunted by a
past that won't let her go... a dark past that hides many a secret,
including the reason Jenessa hasn't spoken a word in over a year. Carey
knows she must keep her sister close, and her secrets even closer, or
risk watching her new life come crashing down.
