There you'll find me
"Jones has incredible insight into her teen characters. They are complex, yet have a lighter side and irresistible charm. The story is truly an outpouring to young people about healing deep wounds and gaining a voice for truth and hope." --RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, TOP PICK!
Grief brought Finley to Ireland. Love will lead her home.
Finley Sinclair is not your typical eighteen-year-old. She's witty, tough, and driven. With an upcoming interview at the Manhattan music conservatory, Finley needs to finish composing her audition piece. But her creativity disappeared with the death of her older brother, Will.
She decides to take a break and study abroad, following Will's travel journal to Ireland. Her brother felt closest to God there, and she hopes to find peace about his death.
Beckett Rush, teen heartthrob and Hollywood bad boy, is flying to Ireland to finish filming his latest vampire movie. On the flight, he bumps into Finley. She's the one girl who seems immune to his charm. Undeterred, Beckett convinces her to be his assistant in exchange for his help as a tour guide.
Once in Ireland, Finley starts to break down. The loss of her brother and the pressure of school, her impending audition, and whatever is happening between her and Beckett, leads her to a new and dangerous vice. When is God going to show up for her in this emerald paradise?
Then she experiences something that radically changes her perspective on life. Could it be God convincing her that everything she's been looking for has been with her all along?
"And that's why I think it works so well . . . It manages to be relatable despite the unique circumstances, despite the characters being people in the public eye, despite it being set somewhere I've never been. What so many YAs can't achieve in the most everyday settings with the most everyday characters, There You'll Find Me does." --School Library Journal
