    Finley Sinclair is not your typical 18 year old. She’s witty, tough, and driven. With an upcoming interview at the Manhattan music conservatory, Finley needs to compose her audition piece. But her creativity disappeared with the death of her older brother, Will. She decides to study abroad in Ireland so she can follow Will’s travel journal. It’s the place he felt closest to God, and she’s hopeful being there will help her make peace over losing him. So she agrees to an exchange program and boards the plane....

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of There You'll Find Me to be better than the print version?

    Certainly: Jeannie Stith exhibits a trancendant talent as a narrator. Complete versatility with accents, characterizations, impersonations, dialects, genders, moods of the moment etc.. There is an energy to her voice and an etherial beauty. I buy just about everything Jeannie Stith narrates.


    What other book might you compare There You'll Find Me to and why?

    Perhaps: Carrier Of The Mark by Leigh Fallon, narrated by Nicola Barber. Both stories take place in mythically evocative Ireland. Rich, abondant and very rewarding relationality between characters who are very, very real, "cardboard antitheses" and defined, oh so well, chiefly through their meaningful, refreshing, provocative and ultimately formative relationships with each other. An ode to good humor, tried and true heart-warming golden values, sensitivity and rock solid strength of character. Cute, convincing youthful humor, replete with amusing twists and turns with deep-rooted, rejuvenatingly dependable and ultimately rousing friendships. Uplifting and gratifying. I consider Nicola Barber another very noteworthy narrator of books for young readers.
