Book Synopsis: 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.
About The Author: EMILY MURDOCH lives in the Arizona desert with her husband and adopted dogs, spending her days operating a sanctuary for
slaughter-rescued horses and burros. At night, she writes furiously by candlelight, capturing the ideas inspired by the day. If You Find Me is Murdoch's first published novel.
Review: Oh my goodness. That's really all I can say. Please, go out and buy this book immediately because it is THAT GOOD. Within the story, the author accurately captured and portrayed the main character's pain. Carey is only fifteen years old while she is going through all of these events. Her mother abducted her and her sister ten years ago for some unknown reason. Now, her and her sister are stuck living in a broken down caper in a forest until one day, a social worker and Carey's father suddenly find them. Now, they are put into the world of high school, which revolves around technology, drama, clothes and boys. While facing some of their past issues, along with the issues they have trying to fit in to this new life is where the intensity and sadness of this novel seeps through. It's an amazing story that you're going to devour in hours.

I have come to realize that I miss book blogging! This is something I used to love doing, and I really need to get back to doing things that I love. To kick it off, I went on a trip to Barnes and Noble to pick up some books to get me back into the swing of things.

Hi everyone! Sorry again for the long time, no talk....I'm done coming up with excuses though! I'm really going to try to stay more committed to this again because I have recently realized how much I missed reading. Yesterday I took a trip to the bookstore and bought three books; one of which I have already read, and the review will be up very shortly. Here are the books!





Only three for me this week due to the fact that I am starting up once again. Thank you so much for your patience with me everyone, it's good to be back.
