"If You Find Me"

Just finished another absolutely fantastic book, and honestly have no idea what to do with my life.

You know those books that stab you in the heart and leave your head spinning, and you gasp for breath, unable to process what just happened?

“If You Find Me” by Emily Murdoch did just that!

It was so sad, and heartbreaking, and somehow full of hope that I couldn’t put it down until I finished it, which didn’t take long.

“If You Find Me” is a story about two sisters who lived their whole life relying on no one but each other, until their meth addicted mother realized that she can’t take care of them, and sent the older girl’s father and child services to get them from the national park where they lived in the camper and bring them into the real world.

It was a bit on a YA side, and all in all it is a coming-of-age story, but there was something about it, about the writing, too, that gripped my very soul, cheesy as it sounds.
