Description-

  • "Jones has incredible insight into her teen characters. They are complex, yet have a lighter side and irresistible charm. The story is truly an outpouring to young people about healing deep wounds and gaining a voice for truth and hope." —RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, TOP PICK!

    Grief brought Finley to Ireland. Love will lead her home.

    Finley Sinclair is not your typical eighteen-year-old. She's witty, tough, and driven. With an upcoming interview at the Manhattan music conservatory, Finley needs to finish composing her audition piece. But her creativity disappeared with the death of her older brother, Will.

    She decides to take a break and study abroad, following Will's travel journal to Ireland. Her brother felt closest to God there, and she hopes to find peace about his death.

    Beckett Rush, teen heartthrob and Hollywood bad boy, is flying to Ireland to finish filming his latest vampire movie. On the flight, he bumps into Finley. She's the one girl who seems immune to his charm. Undeterred, Beckett convinces her to be his assistant in exchange for his help as a tour guide.

    Once in Ireland, Finley starts to break down. The loss of her brother and the pressure of school, her impending audition, and whatever is happening between her and Beckett, leads her to a new and dangerous vice. When is God going to show up for her in this emerald paradise?

    Then she experiences something that radically changes her perspective on life. Could it be God convincing her that everything she's been looking for has been with her all along?

    "And that's why I think it works so well . . . It manages to be relatable despite the unique circumstances, despite the characters being people in the public eye, despite it being set somewhere I've never been. What so many YAs can't achieve in the most everyday settings with the most everyday characters, There You'll Find Me does." —School Library Journal

    August 15, 2011
    Finley Sinclair is many things: an heiress, an accomplished musician, a reformed wild child, and a grieving sister. In an attempt to feel close to both God and her brother, who was killed in a terrorist bombing, Finley becomes an exchange student in the same Irish village her brother visited several years earlier. Finley becomes fast friends with her host family and strikes up an uneasy relationship with a Robert Pattinson–like movie star who is in Ireland filming his latest vampire flick. While this has all the makings of an earnest YA Christian romance novel, Jones (A Charmed Life series) throws readers a curve by very gradually revealing that Finley has an eating disorder. While this novel has some similarities to Laurie Halse Anderson’s Wintergirls—another YA novel about an anorexic teenager—Jones’s decision to leave Finley’s “issues” unnamed until the very last pages of the novel is troubling. Finley has problems, but her life is also glamorous. The novel strikes dissonant tones, unsuccessfully combining sprightly teen romance with life-or-death topics. From the very beginning, Finley is counting calories and denying herself food, but no one takes note until the final third of the novel. And even then, the eating disorder is described as “the beginning of anorexia” brought on by grief and stress. For young readers, the mixed messages this novel sends about a very serious condition may be problematic. Ages 14–up.

    Gr 7 Up-Finley Sinclair is spending her senior year in Ireland, hoping to reconnect with herself and God by following her deceased brother's footsteps through the land he'd loved so much. The time and peace should also help her finish her original composition for her New York Conservatory audition. However, beginning with the plane ride, where she meets Beckett Rush, teen actor heartthrob, and is wrangled into becoming his personal assistant, things go awry. Assigned a project at her new school to "adopt" a grandmother, Finley is saddled with the crankiest woman in the nursing home. Then her host family is unable to take her to see the sights her brother had so loved, but the aggravatingly charming Beckett consents to be her tour guide. When the school queen bee discovers how much time Finley is spending with him, she decides to make Finley's host sister miserable. As her life crumbles around her, Finley must learn to trust people and God to see her through. With a beautiful setting and complex characters, Jones has written a powerful book about grief. There is no tidy ending, but readers are left with hope that Finley's life will continue to get better. Libraries looking to add to their Christian fiction holdings would do well to consider this book.-Jessica Miller, New Britain Public Library, CT
