“Find Me.”

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.

I am so glad that I finally read this book. It was a totally mind blowing awesome book from start to finish. Not too many times do I come across a book that has amazing characters and an even better storyline. But this book had both, and even more. It seemed as if there was 2 different plots/storylines in one amazing book.

Wick is your not so average teenage girl. She's a computer hacker, trained by her drug dealer father's best friend. But when her father runs from the police, her and her little sister, Lily, go into the system. Now she is known as the social outcast at her school and she does side-jobs to make a little extra money in case her and her sister need to disappear. One night, she finds a package on her steps, one addressed to her with a diary inside and a note that says "Find Me".

This book will take you on a thrill ride as Wick tries to uncover the truth behind a fellow classmates suicide and as she tries to stay hidden from her drug-dealer father and his equally terrifying friend, Joe. All while trying to keep her sister safe.

I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to read Remember Me, the amazing sequel to this awesome book.

Romily Bernard graduated from Georgia State University with a literature degree. Since then, she's worked as a riding instructor, cell-phone salesperson, personal assistant, horse groomer and exercise rider, accounting assistant, and, during a very dark time, customer service representative. . . . She's also, of course, now a YA novelist.

So don't let anyone tell you a BA degree will keep you unemployed.

Romily currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and Find Me is her debut novel. It placed first in the 2011 YA Unpublished Maggie Awards (given by Georgia Romance Writers) and won the Golden Heart Award for YA Romance from the Romance Writers of America in 2012.
