About There You’ll Find Me
Grief brought Finley Sinclair to Ireland. Love will lead her home.
Eighteen-year-old Finley Sinclair is witty, tough, talented, and driven. With an upcoming interview at the Manhattan music conservatory, she just 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. Meanwhile, 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—the one girl who seems immune to his charm. Undeterred, Beckett convinces Finley to strike an unconventional bargain.
As Finley deals with the loss of her brother, the pressures of school, and her impending audition, she wonders if an unlikely romance is blossoming between her and Beckett. Then she experiences something that radically changes her perspective on life. Has everything she’s been looking for been with her all along?
I recently watched Finding You, which left me curious about the book that it was based on. So I found my own copy. What I found in the pages of the book was not the same as the movie. The movie is magical. But so is the book, in it’s own way.
There You’ll Find Me is a Christian Young Adult Fiction. And the writing is fantastic. The reader feels transported to Ireland with Finley the main character. I loved the setting, the characters, and the plot. This whole book is great. And the last chapter left me in tears. That’s a mark of a good book, to care enough to cry over it.
I loved Finley. She has a way about her. She’s doing a study abroad program for her last year of high school. I had to laugh at the beginning when she was seated by Beckett Rush. He’s a movie star who thinks that everyone wants a bit of him. But she puts him in his place. I loved seeing the friendship these two develop throughout the book. They both need each other for different reasons.
Finley changes as the book goes along. She becomes hyper focused on how she looks. Something that is easy for any of us to do. But when we become so focused like that, it’s hard to see any good around us. Or even good in ourselves. I loved how she learned this through the woman she had been asked to serve, Cathleen.
This is such a great book! I’m going to have to read more by this author soon!
