Publisher's Summary

What happens in the woods stays in the woods.... Carey is keeping a terrible secret. If she tells, it could destroy her future. If she doesn't, will she ever be free?

For almost as long as she can remember, Carey has lived in a camper van in the heart of the woods with her drug-addicted mother and six-year-old sister, Jenessa. Her mother routinely disappears for weeks at a time, leaving the girls to cope alone. Survival is Carey's only priority - until strangers arrive and everything changes....

Carey is a strong, resilient, loving, and earnest character who is flawed but determined to find light in the darkness - a magnificently human heroine for modern listeners.

Jenny Downham, author of Before I Die, says that If You Find Me is "a beautiful book about survival, identity, family, love, and so much more."

Packs and emotional punch!

The beautiful, heart-breaking story of Carey (15), who was hidden away by her mentally ill and drug addicted Mama in the woods, and who had to fend for herself and her younger sister, Jenessa (5). Written in a straight-forward, uncomplicated but deeply affecting style, which I thought was perfect as this is classified as YA, and because this is the way a young, self-schooled girl would express herself.

I listened to the audio, and highly recommend this to everyone. The narrator, Tai Simmons, brings Carey to life and really deepens the emotional impact of the book. I also adored her Southern accent.

I am so glad I gave this book a try as I don’t normally read a lot of YA titles. Carey’s voice will stay with me for a long time.

epilogue

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

this is a really powerful story.

Any additional comments?

i felt like the epilogue was an important part of Carey's story. I was disappointed that it was not included in this performance.
