there you'll find me

there you'll find me
jennny b. jones

Finley has lost her brother and seems to have lost her way as well. When she gets her brother's high school travel journal through Ireland, she decides to follow (as an exchange student) in his footsteps and see if she can find her way again.

She doesn't expect to meet the popular teen heartthrob on the plane and then see him daily at her host house. He annoys her and yet intrigues her. And where is God in all of this mess?
Once she gets settled into her life in Ireland she realizes that she doesn't have as much control over life as she thought she did and the idea is disturbing.

I was expecting a teenage or young adult book that was light on God and heavy on romance. But this was deeper than that. It did have romance, but it also dealt with death, anorexia, bullying and find God wherever you are.
I was very impressed with how well the author handled the subject of anorexia and how it can happen to anyone. This book has four areas that can help a young girl who is dealing with issues - death, bullying, anorexia and God. It's a book that I'll be keeping for my daughter to read when she gets a bit older. 

I received this book free of charge from Booksneeze in exchange for my honest review.
