Críticas:

"A story about redemption, self-forgiveness and the healing power of truth...emotional truth. Lyrical...heart-wrenching." --New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice) "Beautifully written. The deep bond between the sisters is almost physically palpable, as is their intense longing for love and acceptance; they will quickly endear themselves to readers." --School Library Journal (Starred Review) "A compelling narrative that is both unflinching about life's pain and hopeful about its possibilities." --Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review) "First-time author Emily Murdoch has written a painful, hopeful, surprisingly quiet book that charts the best and worst of humanity, especially family, with characters who worm their way into your heart-or repulse the reader's very nature. Her narrative is full of unique yet breathtaking similes, detailed descriptions, and unflinching dialogue all masquerading as backwoods Tennessee dialect... She validates the courage and ingenuity of young people the world over for whom survival is instinctive; protection of siblings is nonnegotiable; and love both a right and a gift bestowed upon those fortunate enough to find it." --Booklist (Starred Review) "Within two pages, I was so hopelessly hooked, I felt like the story had attached itself to me. The storyline is original and suspenseful, but most of all, it was Carey's voice that had me flipping the pages. This is one of those books you devour." --Jennifer Brown, author of Hate List "If You Find Me grabbed me by the heart on page one and didn't let go till the very last word. Murdoch's language is lovely, her storytelling gripping." --Carol Lynch Williams, author of The Chosen One "Searing . . . hurt my heart and will probably haunt my dreams - a beautiful book about survival, identity, family, love and so much more." --Jenny Downham, author of Before I Die "Carey and Nessa's story is memorable and deeply moving, and readers will find it very easy to fall in love with these girls." --Publishers Weekly

Neuware - Bonus content: Turn to the back for a brand new epilogue, and a sneak peek at the first chapter of Emily's next novel!'There are some things you can't leave behind . . . 'In 'If You Find Me 'by Emily Murdoch, a 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 has disappeared 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 secrets, 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. 256 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781250033277
