YAckers Discussion: If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch



Our YAckers’ pick for the previous month was If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch. I don’t think I would have picked this up if it wasn’t a book club read but the premise looked intriguing enough. Here’s the summary from Goodreads:

If You Find MeA broken-down camper hidden deep in a national forest is the only home fifteen year-old Carey can remember. The trees keep guard over her threadbare existence, with the one bright spot being Carey’s younger sister, Jenessa, who depends on Carey for her very survival. All they have is each other, as their mentally ill mother comes and goes with greater frequency. Until that one fateful day their mother disappears for good, and two strangers arrive. Suddenly, the girls are taken from the woods and thrust into a bright and perplexing new world of high school, clothes and boys.

Now, Carey must face the truth of why her mother abducted her ten years ago, while haunted by a past that won’t let her go… a dark past that hides many a secret, including the reason Jenessa hasn’t spoken a word in over a year. Carey knows she must keep her sister close, and her secrets even closer, or risk watching her new life come crashing down.

Unfortunately, we were all disappointed in this one. Head on over to the YAckers site to see what we had to say about the book. I don’t think I’ll be posting a review of this. I’ve moving on to the next title that we will be discussing and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will be better!

  1. I’ve heard lots of things – good and bad – about this book! It intrigues me somewhat, but I’m still not sure if I really want to read it. I’m definitely going to hop over and check out your discussion!

  2. Ahhh, no review, so I’m guessing ‘disappointed’ was a nice way of putting it? Sorry this one didn’t work for you.

    • I’m so behind on reviews lately so I really don’t get to review all of the books that I read. I figured that since I was able to share my thoughts in the YAckers discussion, that’s good enough.

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you! I try my best to reply to all the comments on my blog.
