There You'll Find Me

I’m going to admit iy…even though I’m a few years out of high school, actually 7, I still enjoy reading the same types of books I enjoyed when I was in school. That’s why, when I saw the book There You’ll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones, I couldn’t wait to read about Finley Sinclair. Finley is the daughter of a well-known hotel owner, and she went through a difficult time after the death of her brother. Finley decides to travel to Ireland to travel the steps her brother took as he grew in his relationship with God.

When Finley travels to Ireland she faces many obstacles, including her relationship with Beckett Rush, a famous actor, her school project which pairs her with an elderly woman who has a secret of her own, her issues with food, and her stress over composing an original song to perform at her college audition. I really liked how the book came together and although there were various topics discussed in the book, they all seemed as if they were something any regular teenager could be going through. I also liked that Finley was brave enough to face going to a foreign country in an attempt to find herself and also reconnect with God. Although she didn’t necessarily find everything she was looking for in Ireland, I really liked reading about her bravery and also the struggles she was facing in her relationship with God. I think it’s a good thing for teenage girls to read about and understand that they are not the only ones struggling.

I am definitely going to be loaning this book to my teenage sister and cousin, since from just looking at the cover they already expressed their interest in reading the book.
