Synopsis via Goodreads:
Foster child. Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare. I believe the synopsis does a great job describing Wick our main character. However if I was able to make adjustments, there are a few other words I would throw in to describe her: Loyal, determined, passionate and caring.
Wick has had an usual upbringing to say the least. She has a drug lord for a father, and a mother who committed suicide. Now placed in foster care with her younger sister Lily, Wick is determined to save enough money to be able to have a stable home for herself and her sister. She is a hacker. A gifted computer genius who uses her skill to find out whether a woman's boyfriend/husband is remaining fateful to their significant other.
One morning she is shocked to find a mysterious package left for her on her foster home's front steps. It is a personal journal of a a classmate Tessa, with a post it that says FIND ME. Wick believes this to be suspicious, but when she goes to school and find out that Tessa had committed suicide, Wick is determined to get to the bottom of the story, and find out why the journal was given to her.
It had been a really long time since I had read a good thriller. Usually with thrillers, regardless if they are adult fiction or YA, I have the ability to guess the ending about a third way into the story. But I have to admit that with FIND ME, I had no idea where the author was going to take the story. I really enjoyed this story, and I have to admit Wick has just became one of my favorite YA heroines. I loved how dimensional the author made Wick's personality. She is brave and courageous, but at the same time weak and vulnerable. She is loyal to her sister, but at the same time scared of her father. Thanks to her unusual and dysfunctional childhood. She is unbelieving and does not trust love of any kind. Whether it is the love of a foster family who truly wants the best for her. Or the love of a boy, who wants to protect her and be there for her, even when she pushes him away.
There were so many amazing aspects to this story, that I had to give it a 5 out of 5 :)
