If You Find MeThere 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 Believe the hypeIf You Find Me is one of those rare books that so expertly sadly wonderfully horrifically captures the protagonist's pain But not just pain Their resilience determination fear and hope too Fans of heartbreakingly powerful stories by authors such as Sara Zarr and Courtney Summers will surely fall in love with this story A story which dragged my heart mercilessly along the ground without once feeling melodramatic or cliche or overdone Emily Murdoch's debut is truly fantastic and I hope this is the start of a long and beautiful love affair between myself and her novelsThe story opens out in the woods where fifteen year old Carey and her younger sister Nessa live in a run down old camper van This time their mother has been away longer than ever and Carey has to struggle to make sure they both don't starve But one day two strangers arrive with a letter from their mother confessing that she can no longer take care of her two daughters The girls are taken away from the woods to live with their father and his new family but of course things aren't as simple as happily ever after Carey has to adjust to a life where there are no trees to hide secrets behind and the time that goes by the her dark past threatens to come back to haunt herOne thing I absolutely adore in young adult books is a strong bond between siblings I loved it in Angelfall and I loved it in The 5th Wave it's just one of those things that seems to always plant me firmly on the protagonist's side Perhaps it's because I'm the oldest of three children and feel very protective toward my younger brother and sister I don't know but I find myself immediately liking protagonist's that put their younger sibling first and dedicate themselves to making sure they're kept alivehappy And I think the relationship between Carey and Nessa is told so well These girls have spent so much time alone with only each other for company and even when they are removed from the woods and go to live with others they seem to exist a little separately from the rest at first Eventually they start to adjust to their new lives and the change felt gradual and realisticThere's only a couple of reasons why this didn't get the full five stars and I think they were big enough reasons for me to justify the lowered rating Basically I often thought that Carey's voice was somewhat adult and mature than it should have been for a fifteen year old Now I'm happy to make some allowance for the unusual circumstances that Carey has grown up in and the parental role she has been forced to take on However while this may be a good enough reason for her altered outlook on life I still feel that it isn't enough to explain some of the language used The other reason for the lowered rating was the handling of the situation with Delaney their father's stepdaughter which I think was resolved too uickly to be satisfactory I sympathised with both girls' situations but thought that it could have been explored better and developed subtly than it wasOverall though this was an excellent debut The story was compelling albeit dark and the characters were well rounded and interesting I'm very excited to see where Murdoch goes next
