Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Carey’s little sister, Jenessa, has not spoken since the white starry night, a night so traumatic that neither acknowledges it happened. But now Carey’s father, with the help of Mrs. Haskell, the social worker, has arranged for the girls to live with him and his new family, even though Jenessa is not his biological daughter. He and his wife, Melissa, and stepdaughter Delaney offer the girls a life that is, while not without its challenges, far from their druggie mother who disappears more frequently than she stays, and the hardscrabble existence of canned beans, pee-smelling coats, and cigarette-burned flesh. First-time author Murdoch has written a painful, hopeful, surprisingly quiet book that charts the best and worst of humanity, especially family, with characters who worm their way into your heart—or repulse the reader’s very nature. Her narrative is full of unique yet breathtaking similes, detailed descriptions, and unflinching dialogue all masquerading as backwoods Tennessee dialect. Exposing child abuse, sexual abuse, and drug abuse for the terrors they are, she validates the courage and ingenuity of young people the world over for whom survival is instinctive, protection of siblings is nonnegotiable, and love is both a right and a gift bestowed upon those fortunate enough to find it. Grades 8-12. --Frances Bradburn

Review

“A story about redemption, self-forgiveness and the healing power of truth…emotional truth. Lyrical…heart-wrenching.” —New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice)

“Beautifully written. The deep bond between the sisters is almost physically palpable, as is their intense longing for love and acceptance; they will quickly endear themselves to readers.” —School Library Journal (Starred Review)

“A compelling narrative that is both unflinching about life's pain and hopeful about its possibilities.” —Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

“First-time author Emily Murdoch has written a painful, hopeful, surprisingly quiet book that charts the best and worst of humanity, especially family, with characters who worm their way into your heart—or repulse the reader’s very nature. Her narrative is full of unique yet breathtaking similes, detailed descriptions, and unflinching dialogue all masquerading as backwoods Tennessee dialect... She validates the courage and ingenuity of young people the world over for whom survival is instinctive; protection of siblings is nonnegotiable; and love both a right and a gift bestowed upon those fortunate enough to find it.” —Booklist (Starred Review)

“Within two pages, I was so hopelessly hooked, I felt like the story had attached itself to me. The storyline is original and suspenseful, but most of all, it was Carey's voice that had me flipping the pages. This is one of those books you devour.” —Jennifer Brown, author of Hate List

“If You Find Me grabbed me by the heart on page one and didn't let go till the very last word. Murdoch's language is lovely, her storytelling gripping.” —Carol Lynch Williams, author of The Chosen One

“Searing . . . hurt my heart and will probably haunt my dreams – a beautiful book about survival, identity, family, love and so much more.” —Jenny Downham, author of Before I Die

“Carey and Nessa's story is memorable and deeply moving, and readers will find it very easy to fall in love with these girls.” —Publishers Weekly
