“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.

OK When I first recieved an ARC of Find Me by Romily Bernard the first thing I noticed was the words at the top of the book...

"Come Out, Come Out,
 Wherever You Are......"

I mean YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew immediately that this book was for me!! The cover is phenomenal. The words Find Me spread all over in a repeating fashion with the "image" of a young girl in the background. I love a good mystery and just looking at the cover told me that is what I was in for!

The first few chapters introduce you to Wick and her current situation. Wick and her sister, Lily are in the foster system and have been placed with new foster parents, Todd and Bren. They are trying to move on with their life after dealing with their Dad's arrest. Wick is very intelligent and great with computers. She even has a business on the side that where she hacks into peoples computers in order to get information for clients. No one but Lily knows this about her. Wick used her talent to help her father with his illegal activites which has caused her to be on the radar of Detective Carson, the detective who arrested her father. 

Wick steps out one morning and discovers a envelope laying on the porch addressed to her. Wick opens the package and discovers a old water stained book with a single yellow post-it attached that states FIND ME. She then realizes that this is Tessa Waye's personal diary. Tessa is a old friend of Wicks that she hasnt spoken to in years. 

"He said if I told anyone, he'd kill me. I believe him"
 (Page 49 of Tessa Waye's Diary)

Little does Wick know but Tessa will be found dead later that day percieved as a victim of suicide but Wick knows better. Wick immediately worries that she or her little sister are next and begins to try and uncover the mystery. 

Griff is a neighborhood kid who has always talked to Wick and begins to become closer to her as this story unfolds. Their romance is very sweet and perfectly fits into this story. Griff helps Wick to hunt down clues for the killer. 

This is only the beginning of a wild, creepy, emotional, roller coaster ride! This book was phenomenal! At every turn of the page you get surprised again and again by new twists and turns. I could not put this book down. I wanted to know everything. Why this happened? Who was the killer? What caused all the events in this story? I mean it was just so awesome! The ending was the best ever! Talk about a page-turner! 

If you like young adult books that are full of suspense and mystery with a little bit of romance on the side then this book is for you!! I will defintely be on the lookout for any other novels that Romily Bernard writes!!!!!
