Hotel heiress Finley Sinclair meets movie star Beckett Rush on a flight to Ireland. After her brother died while reporting in a war zone, Finley decides to go to Ireland like he had done in high school. Finley and Beckett keep crossing paths, and eventually get to see that the persona they show the world is not who they really are. The book handles Finley’s growing eating disorder in a subtle way, with Finley seeming fine and refusing to let anyone know her problems. The epilogue seems too rushed with a lot of character development being skipped over, but overall the book is an interesting read about overcoming grief, spirituality, and false impressions.

I love this book! :)
It's a heartfelt, amazing, humourous and clever novel. There you'll Find Me, is about a girl named Finley Sinclair, who goes to Ireland to find God, hope, and the end of her song.

This is one of my many favorite books. This book was very powerful and meaningful at the same time. I like that Finley, because she might be (spoilers) starving herself but she is still strong in until the end. I like Beckett, because he wants to date Finley and by the way he shows her that is that he help her see all the places her bother went. Finley is strong, but she should not starve herself for the reason she is. I think that you should read this even if you are not christian. Hope you like it to.. :)

This book has become one of my favorite books, one of the best books I have ever read. Now, I haven't read TOO many titles, but in my brain, this one is up there with my BEST of the BEST favorites. This is probably also the best for this type of genre. Many may call it a romance, and yes, there is a romance (which I absolutely ADORE), but it's not just that. It has a slice-of-life feel to it. This book is VERY DEEP. It addresses the emotions that no one but God really has answers to, such as grief, guilt, identity, why bad things happen to good people, and how can God have a plan through all the horrific waves of life. The story unfolded beautifully, and I totally fell for the characters. I loved Finley almost immediately; she is really tough on the outside and has wit and spunk, but inside she's a grieving child desperate for hope and answers, desperate to find her brother's faith and her brother's God. It's truly heart-breaking to see all her emotions play out and spin around in a tumbling mess, and this was made even more alive by the first person POV. Beckett was a charming lead role as well. I LOVED him. I've gotta give Jones credit: she is VERY good at creating modern, dashing male leads. Even though I haven't read the Charmed Life series, I read enough to know that she was good at that. Beckett has enough problems himself, but he's funny, nice, charming, and mature. The supporting cast were very good as well. I absolutely love this book. It played with my emotions as well. You will LOVE this book. Read it.

OMG! FIVE STARS! TEN STARS! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVED IT! OK, sorry, had to get that out. Now I will talk not on caps lock lol. This book is amazing. I recommend it to any Christian teen looking for a good book. It has my two favorite aspects of writing: humor and romance. I read this before I read A Charmed Life (also by Jenny B. Jones, definitely recommend it) and I have to say I like this one a lot better. I'd even put it up there with Heist Society, and I'm really totally obsessed with Heist Society. I lent it to my friend, and she emailed me two days later saying she's already read it four times and she's reading it again! Jenny has an amazing sense of humor, Finley and Beckitt are sooooo adorable together! And I love her family, too. I can't wait to read about Alex and Lucy's engagement in Save the Date (which I'm going to put on hold right now)

"...I keep thinking, what if my brother and I had ended things on bad terms before he left for Afghanistan? But we didn't. A few days before he left, he took me out to eat, we went to a movie."
I could see it so clearly in my head. I'd worn a white sweater, some new jeans, and shiny red flats. He told me to stop growing up. And then he died.
And I'd grown up overnight.

Two years ago I went to Ireland. I met an arrogant vampire, an angry old woman, and a mischievous nun.

Beckett stared for one second before he threw his head back and laughed. "You take care of yourself, Frances. I hope you find what you need in Ireland, and maybe even...a little fun." "My name is-" I snapped my lips together. Never mind, the boy is an actor. Not a rocket scientist. Clearly he wasn't blessed with an ample amount of brain cells. Just stunningly good looks.
