Here's the blurb:
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 the girls are found by their father, a stranger, and taken to re-enter the "normal" life of school, clothes and boys.
Now, Carey must come to terms with the truth of why their mother spirited them away 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.
IF YOU FIND ME is a riveting mix of psychological tension and page-turning mystery that asks profound questions about family, truth and love.
Thanks so much, everyone, for celebrating this with me. Reading the replies today, reminds me to stay happy and excited at a time when I also feel scared and nervous!
I agree that the "whole package" -- story, title and cover -- really came together, nicely! And, I saw the ARC -- my pub sent me a picture of the book lying open with the back and front cover showing, and it is *glorious*.
They all did a wonderful job. You can see the pub loves it as much as I do. It's a lovely feeling. : )
ARCs come out in August ... gulp.
