"In There You'll Find Me, Finley is a senior and spending the year in Ireland in a foreign exchange program. She is trying to come back from a devastating loss, but pretty much failing. While she stays with her host family, who own a B&B, she meets Beckett Rush, the hottest teen actor in Hollywood and star of a series of popular vampire films. While Finley tours the countryside, determined to walk in the same steps her brother did when he was there years ago, she finds her stay in Ireland not nearly as inspiring. Between an assignment that has her babysitting a cranky old woman with troubles of her own and working as Beckett's personal assistant against her wishes and her good judgment, Finley is finding little time to do the healing God is calling her to do. And little time to deal with the secrets from her own past that threaten to pull her under."
I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book when I began to read it. Since I found out after the fact that it's considered Young Adult Fiction, I figured that it was going to be the same old `fluff' that I remember reading when I was a young adult. Boy, was I wrong!
The author wrote this book giving the main character, Finley Sinclair, maturity that unfortunately came about by her experiencing the tragic death of her beloved brother. So there went the traditional "young adult" fluff right out the window. I was invested in Finley's journey following her brother's footsteps in Ireland, as she composed her piece to get into music school, and her tumultuous relationship with Beckett Rush. Especially when she found out that he is nothing like she thought he would be. I laughed when she laughed and cried when she cried.Read more ›
I loved the tender way Ms. Jones handles the tougher issues of control, grief, deceit, and an Irish brand of mean girls. But to do so with enough wit and humor to keep the reader from becoming depressed is pure skill. By far this is one of my favorite Jenny B. Jones novels, yet. Can't wait for her next one.
The Kindle edition did have some formatting issues, most notably with random line breaks in dialogue, which sometimes made it hard to keep track of who exactly was saying what.
Finley Sinclair heads to Ireland to find herself by following her brother's steps from his travel journal. In retracing his adventure, she hopes to find peace from the turmoil of her life since his death. When she meets a movie star, her journey to healing becomes even more complicated.
From the first page of the book, I loved Finley Sinclair, a girl who has more issues than she does hope. Her growth throughout the story is a beautiful tale of loss and healing. As usual, Jenny B. Jones adds enough humor throughout the book to keep the tale from becoming morose or gloomy.
What sets this book apart from books of its type (think Sarah Dessen) is that not only does Finley find herself and the guy she didn't know she wanted, but she finds the One who loves her so much that He orchestrated her life and her trip to Ireland so that she might find Him. That is the most important love story of all time, and teen readers will walk away from reading this book with more than just a cute romance (although the character of Beckett is definitely crush-worthy). :)
I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.
