These are the words written on Tessa Waye’s diary. The diary that ends up with Wick Tate. But Tessa’s just been found . . . dead.
Wick has the right computer-hacking skills for the job, but little interest in this perverse game of hide-and-seek. Until her sister Lily is the next target.
Then Griff, trailer-park boy next door and fellow hacker, shows up, intent on helping Wick. Is a happy ending possible with the threat of Wick’s deadbeat dad returning, the detective hunting him sniffing around Wick instead, and a killer taunting her at every step?
Foster child. Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare.
But she’s going to find this killer no matter what.
Because it just got personal.
What attracted me to this book apart from the cover is that it is a thriller, I like to read a book of this genre from time to time and try to guess who´s the bad guy because they all look guilty, seeing the clues, hints and imagine what really happened and this book did not disappoint me in that aspect because since the beginning there are several suspects, but little by little some look less guilty until you find the real "culprit".
Find Me tells the story of Wick and her sister, they have been through several foster homes since their father is on the run from the police and at the moment they are with a good couple that really want to help them, but Wick with the kind of life she has lived so far does not trust anyone. She is a hacker who uses her skills to make money investigating boyfriends or husbands that cheat on their partner, but one of her rules is that all contact is through the computer never in person until one day she finds in front of her house a diary with a note that says " Find me " and her regular fee to start an investigation. But when she learns that the diary is from her former friend Tess, who apparently committed suicide, she wants no part with this research, that is until the day she founds several references about her little sister Lily, where Tess´s secret "boyfriend", seems to be interested in Lily and he could go after her.
The story is told from Wick´s point of view, a girl whose only interest is to keep her sister safe, but their relationship begins to deteriorate because Lily wants the new life that is living with her new family and she doesn't want it to get ruin by Wick. Both sisters have a dark past because Wick has had to commit crimes to help her father and business partner, to which both girls would fear because they are violent and hurt one when they want to punish the other.
Overall, Find Me is a very entertaining thriller, I like follow the clues to find the bad guy. Something that I really liked is that at the beginning of each chapter are quotes from Tess´s diary where we realize the kind of relationship that she had with the man she was seeing in secret. Find Me is a book that fans of young adult thrillers will enjoy.
I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review.
