There You'll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones

I stayed up until midnight so I could get a free copy of this book to review for you!  I chose this book for it's setting, "Ireland", and the cover was cute.  Now I'm not usually influenced by such things, but it's time I gave fiction a chance.

Grief brought Finley to Ireland.  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.

So, I do like this book for several reasons.  Finely has several serious issues in her life; grief, an eating disorder, acceptance of her own abilities, possible romance.  Young women can identify with one or more of the elements in this story and perhaps find their own solutions.  There You'll Find Me reads easily.  If you want to "escape" to Ireland, this is a book for you.
