Thrilling YA mystery

Find Me - Romily Bernard

"FIND ME.  These are the words written on Tess Waye's diary. The diary that ends up with Wick Tate. But Tessa's just been found... dead."


Wick's life has been more of a nightmare than a dream. So she has a hard time adjusting to a "normal life" and foster parents who really seem to care about her. Wick's father is a felon and he has been abusive to Wick and her sister, Lily. Her father is currently on the run from the law, but they live in fear that he will return.


Wick is an excellent hacker and earns extra money by finding information for women who are having trouble in their relationships. Of course, this isn't legal but Wick feels like she needs the money in case she ever has to take Lily and run. Wick doesn't like to have to depend on anyone else for anything.


Detective Carson is searching for Wick's father and is keeping Wick under surveillance. Wick is sure Carson is a bad cop and that he is out to get her.


Wick has a lot of things on her plate and she doesn't know who to trust. The last thing she needs is to get mixed up in Tessa's death. But whoever abused Tessa has threatened to move on to Lily next. And Wick can't let anyone hurt Lily.



My opinion

This was a good thriller. Wick is a prickly character but with good reason. She doesn't like to let people get close. I enjoyed watching her relationship with Griff evolve. Is he a good guy? I was pretty sure he was but so many people in this story aren't what they seem to be.  I enjoyed trying to figure out who was the bad guy from Tessa's diary. And the reveal was exciting and satisfying.


This book is written for teens, but adults can enjoy it too. If you like thrillers, I think you will enjoy this novel. I read the physical book for this one and I will be passing it on to a friend who I know loves reading young adult novels as much as I do. :)
