Fans of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy will just love this creepy and alluring teen thriller. Complete with action, techie intrigue, a horrifying mystery, and a blossoming romance full of sparks, Find Me is an exhilarating debut.
When teen hacker and foster child Wick Tate finds a dead classmate's diary on her front step, with a note reading "Find me," she sets off on a perverse game of hide-and-seek to catch the killer. But things get even more personal as Wick's deadbeat dad returns and the killer points to Wick's sister Lily as the next target.
With the help of oh-so-cute hacker-boy-next-door Griff, can Wick find her tormenter and save her sister?
Find Me won a 2012 Golden Heart Award and placed first in the 2011 YA Unpublished Maggie Awards (given by Georgia Romance Writers).
Here are some things Wick Tate knows: how to hack into almost any system; that, between her mother's suicide and her abusive drug-dealing father, she's responsible for keeping her sister, Lily, safe; and that no matter how loving their new foster parents seem, she can't trust them or anyone else. Wick isn't even sure she can trust herself what if she's too much like her father? Although Wick and Lily now have nice clothes and a stable living environment, the cop looking for their father keeps coming around, and their father's partner can still force Wick to work for him. Then there are the memories churned up when a childhood friend kills herself, and her diary ends up in Wick's hands. While Wick's fears and suspicions initially seem overwrought, they grow to become entirely reasonable as she's forced to make some very adult decisions. Throw in Wick's burgeoning romance with classmate Griff and a genuinely suspenseful ending, and Bernard's debut is effective as both high-intensity action novel and character study, and ripe for a sequel. Ages 13 up.

This is the greatest book in history
I love this book it it my favorite one EVER. I could read it over and over again for hours, it made me feel as if I was actually there! I loved it and it made me fall in love with the author
Excellent book - beta reader
FIND ME is a thrilling/suspenseful book about a female teenage hacker trying to find her classmates killer. It reminded me of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO crossed with VERONICA MARS. Romily Bernard's debut book had me wanting more - luckily this is only the first book in the trilogy.
