2014 book 130

Emily Murdoch's If You Find Me
Ah jeez, this was kind of a hard book to read. It's about a teenage girl living deep in the woods with her younger sister--their mother is on meth and leaves them alone for long periods of time--and what happens when social services and her father finally find her. Parts of this ring a little bit awkward--her romance with a boy, and her relationship with her stepsister, in particular, could have used more development--and it was kind of relentlessly upsetting. I guess I see why so many people have raved about it, but I feel like the story could have used a bit more, in general (it's only like 200 pages long). B.
