From the publisher:
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 compose her audition piece. But her creativity disappeared with the death of her older brother, Will.

She decides to study abroad in Ireland so she can follow Will’s travel journal. It’s the place he felt closest to God, and she’s hopeful being there will help her make peace over losing him. So she agrees to an exchange program and boards the plane.

Beckett Rush, teen heartthrob and Hollywood bad boy, is flying to Ireland to finish filming his latest vampire movie. On the flight, he meets 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 audition, and whatever it is that 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?


My Review:
~4.5 of 5 stars~
Wow. I LOVED THIS BOOK. Every single book I've read by Jenny B. Jones I pretty much read straight through because I couldn't put it down and this was no different. This is really a great story about growing up, dealing with tragedy, and a little bit about mistaken first impressions and young love. Overall this is an amazing YA story that will appeal to all readers, young and old.

Finley Sinclair, who we met earlier this year in Save the Date, has been dealt a blow in her young life that few adults could cope with, the loss of a beloved brother. In There You'll Find Me we journey with Finley as she follows in her brother's footsteps on a summer trip to the Emerald Isle. She has hopes of finding the peace that her late brother wrote about in his travel journal but she discovers so much more about herself, about love and about learning to let go. The issues that Finley confronts are some that most teens and even adults can relate to.

You will laugh out loud, (look out for the hot potatoes!) cry, (I dare you not to when you get to know Mrs. Sweeney) and want to punch something (namely Beatrice) as you follow Finley and Beckett. This book is good, clean fun in parts and deep in others and not the least bit preachy. If you've ever read Jenny's books before you will be pleased and if you haven't read a book by Jenny B. Jones this is definitely a good place to start.
