New Release Review - Where You'll Find Me by Erin Fletcher @ErinFletcher11

Where You’ll Find Me
by Erin Fletcher

Goodreads blurb:  When Hanley Helton discovers a boy living in her garage, she knows she should kick him out. But Nate is too charming to be dangerous. He just needs a place to get away, which Hanley understands. Her own escape methods (vodka, black hair dye, and pretending the past didn't happen) are more traditional, but who is she to judge?

Nate doesn't tell her why he's in her garage, and she doesn't tell him what she's running from. Soon, Hanley's trading her late-night escapades for all-night conversations and stolen kisses. But when Nate's recognized as the missing teen from the news, Hanley isn't sure which is worse: that she's harboring a fugitive, or that she's in love with one.

About the Author:  Erin is a young adult author from North Carolina. She is a morning person who does most of her writing before sunrise while drinking excessive quantities of coffee. She believes flip-flops qualify as year-round footwear, and would spend every day at the beach if she could. She has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, which is almost never useful when writing books.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!
***Received the ebook from Entangled Publishing for an honest review

The cover is touching and will appeal to all my high school girls :) For me, it doesn’t do much, but who cares ;)

Okay if you know me, I usually stay far away from realistic fiction, but I’m trying to expand my repertoire for my students with the Young Adult books I read.  And contemporary romances are usually not my thing, and I usually think of them as boring; however, again I’m proven wrong and need to stop judging books by genre (and sheepishly admitting by covers too).  Everyone finds it hard to step out of their comfort zones, me included.

This book covers some heart wrenching topics, and I cried bawling my eyes out on several times.  This book is like a show on the Hallmark channel…it rakes you across the coals emotionally which is why I loved it.  In fact, this book should probably be a Hallmark movie ;)

Hanley and Nate’s story together is amazing, but then you add in their individual tragedies, and this becomes so much more.  This book is great for teenagers especially because it covers topics an assortment of topics that are hard to talk about but should be.  I’d give you a list, but I don’t want to give the story away.  You will have to read it.

I highly recommend this book to book lovers who love those sappy emotional Hallmark movies & all of those who already love the contemporary genre.  I loved this book and read it straight through to 3am to finish it because I had to know what happened before I went to bed.

If this comes out in paperback, I’m going to have to pick it up for my high school classroom to share with my girls.

Interested in reading???
