Giveaway: If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch


June 8, 2013 by Heidi

Hello you beautiful readers! Back when If You Find Me was on tour after release I was lucky enough to win a finished hardcover copy from St. Martin’s Griffin.  However, when it came time for me to read the book, I actually decided to pick up the audio and listen instead.  While I personally didn’t love the book, many others have, and you may too!  I’d like to pass on my hardcover copy to a good home.

About the Book

If You Find Me by Emily MurdochIf You Find Me by Emily Murdoch

There are some things you can’t leave behind…

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 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.

Like I said, this one wasn’t for me, but tons of bloggers I totes respect loved it!  Here’s what some of them had to say:

Even if somehow If You Find Me doesn’t get all the literary awards it deserves, I’ll always picture this cover covered in medals.Maja at The Nocturnal Library

This story is amazing. It’s raw and gripping and emotional and heartbreaking, but for all of that – for all of that heaviness – there is so much HOPE and GOOD and even JOY in these pages. — Asheley at Into the Hall of Books

My heart broke into a million little pieces multiple times for teenage Carey and her little sister Jenessa, but then there were moments that stitched it back together. — April at Good Books and Good Wine
