Review of There You'll Find Me
Finley soon meets Beckett Rush, a famous teen bad boy and the star of the latest vampire movie. Beckett's curiosity is peaked as he meets this strange girl who seems immune to his charms and so genuinely real. They soon develop a grudging friendship, and Beckett convinces Finley to work as his assistant. The undeniable attraction begins to build between the two but Finley's past, bullies at Finley's new school, and the pressure to finish Will's song in time for her audition begins to move Finley towards a destructive behavior.
Will she still be able to find healing in the midst of her personal turmoil? Could God still be present in her life even though she's gone through so much?
This book was something new from the author. I'm a huge fan, and I loved to see the humor she has shown in her other books with a deeper poignant feel that makes a reader really connect with the characters. I especially loved the quips about Beckett's career as a vampire. Great stuff. Also, the story of an elderly woman Finley is assigned to be a "granddaughter" for is so beautiful and meaningful. It's truly an excellent blend of funny and meaningful emotion.
All in all, I rate this book five out of five stars.
