Where You’ll Find Me

where-youll-find-meWhere You’ll Find Me by Natasha Friend

Anna has a lot going on in her life.  Her best friend dumped her for the cool crowd.  Her mom is in the hospital after attempting to commit suicide.  Anna is living with her dad, stepmother and new baby sister for the first.  It’s just a lot to take in.

As Anna is finding her identity among the strange people she has to eat lunch with and her new living situation, she is barely hanging on.

This is the story of Anna figuring out how she fits into the big picture of her world.  We see her struggle with old friendships and new ones.  We see her worry about her mother and wonder if maybe her stepmother is cooler than she thought.

There wasn’t anything I disliked about this book but I didn’t find it to be anything special.  There are a few profanities mixed in without much purpose and a scene where Anna overhears her father and his wife in “the bedroom”.  I felt like both of these instances were kind of thrown in to make it feel more edgy but it missed the mark a little bit.

It’s a weird book review in the fact that I didn’t dislike the book, but it gave no reason to stand out as a favorite.
