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Find Me won a 2012 Golden Heart Award and placed first in the 2011 YA Unpublished Maggie Awards (given by Georgia Romance Writers).

Back cover copy

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.

Our customer reviews

There was a ton of hype surrounding this book and when that happens I usually get so excited that I read the ARC months ahead. The premise sounds promising yes? But once I kept reading along, I realized the characters are too one-dimensional. To me, that's a a bad thing only because I feel like in order for me to relate to the story, I need to know who these characters are. I didn't want to get to know Wick at all. Finding out that she's a kick-ass hacker got bonus points, but when I realized how she pretty much traced i.p. addresses and not much else, I felt thoroughly disappointed. Now the story with her best friend and someone trying to tell her that she was murdered was pretty great.. But then the murderer turned out to be the most predictable suspect and least likely to commit the act in one go. Isn't that one of the most basic mystery story lines? Find Me has some compelling points, but I felt it was your typical murder mystery story. It needed something more. Overall, I was left feeling dissatisfied and a little bit sad. Another hype-monster book that I was waiting to wow me..Sadly it didn' more

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis as part of the â??Find Meâ?? blog tour. Thanks to â??The Fantastic Flying Book Clubâ??, HarperCollins, and Edelweiss.) 15-year-old Wicket is a hacker. She spends her time investigating cheating spouses, and saves the money so that her and her younger sister will someday be able to leave their foster family and live on their own. When an old friend of Wickâ??s (Tessa) apparently commits suicide, Wick finds Tessaâ??s diary on her doorstep with a post-it note saying simply â??Find Meâ??. Who left Wick the note? How do they know about her hacking? Did Tessa really commit suicide? Or is her murderer still out there? This was an okay story about a girl trying to find out who had murdered her friend, but I found it quite slow and dull in places. Wick was quite a hard character. She was closed off, had her own ideas and plans, and didnâ??t really care to share them with anyone. She came across as very closed-off, and self-reliant, and even distanced herself from her foster parents and sister. When there were then emotional moments in the book where Wick would cry over her motherâ??s suicide, I just didnâ??t feel it. While it might be obvious that someone would be upset over their motherâ??s death, Wick was such a hard, emotionless character, that I just couldnâ??t feel what she was feeling when she was crying, which made it really difficult to relate to her. The storyline in this book was okay, but I expected more action. I thought the story was quite slow right from the beginning, and I didnâ??t feel scared or threatened by any of the threats or messages that Wick received. A lot of the story seemed to focus on Wick and her hacking, which was pretty dull, and the whole thing just dragged for me. I expected there to be more action, I expected to learn more about what had happened to Tessa, and I expected Wick to do a little more than sit and stare at a computer screen for hours. There was a small romantic moment in the book, which was okay, but this then wasnâ??t built on which was disappointing. The ending was okay, and I didnâ??t guess who the killer was, but when the killer was revealed I was again disappointed. The identity of the killer was quite unoriginal, and I just thought â??really? Is that it?â??. I finished this book feeling glad that it was over, which isnâ??t much of a recommendation really. Overall; okay YA mystery/suspense story, but a little boring and unoriginal. 6.5 out of more

We are The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club, to know more about this book, go to the post in our website: If you are interested, you can visit our website: The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club's Review: Review: FIND. ME. Those words are the key to enter Wicket's mystery word. And believe me, Book Addicts, you won't regret it. Not just because Wicked is the most wonderful character I've ever read about, with a badass site and a real attitude, but because Romily Bernard brings the mystery and the creepy side of this story to a another level. To an incredible and magnificent level. I am definitely bookstruck, creep out and eager to know more about Wick's story. And what made this book even more mysterious and that brings the reader to the point of missing the "dead" character, are Tessa Waye's diary entries. I think that these entries are really important since we don't really get the chance to meet the character that provoked all the chaos in Wicket's life. You don't really know, at first, why this matter. She committed suicide. It's not a common thing, but it's not like someone actually kill her. So you just read some dark entries that Tessa wrote. However, there's more to the story and when you keep reading, the entries get more interesting, dark and mysterious. Like she's trying to say something, without saying it. It makes the story even more mysterious, If that could even happen. Everyone thinks I'm a good girl. If they only knew. -Page 11 of Tessa Waye's diary Let's start with a little sneak peak into the story. Wicket, or Wick, and her sister, Lily, are in the foster system after their father did some pretty bad stuff and got him arrested. But the bad news for both girls, is that he got away and they are really afraid of him turning back. He's seriously bad news. What's even sadder, is that her mother committed suicide a long time ago, so they don't have anyone else. But what makes Wicket a really cool character is that she's some sort of hacker-genious. It comes almost naturally and she has a lot of expertise since she did all her father's dirty job (scamming, getting information...). Not that she wanted! However this skill, allows her to have her own "business". She knows what volatile can be being in a foster home, so she needs the money to be prepared. Just in case. She even has a scary cop that seems to have some sort of fixation with her and she's afraid that he knew about her skills. Also he wants to know about her dad. Everything changes when she receives Tessa Waye's diary after she committed suicide. And a letter: FIND ME. Mysterious? She isn't so happy about this. Her secret's out and someone knows about her skills. Despite this, when she discovers that Tessa's death might not be as much of a simple suicide, but a scape, that makes her want to know more. And when she knows that the person who hurt Tessa so much to scape in that kind of way is hunting Lily, is when it just gets personal. I don't think about my life as having to live up to my parents' expectations. I want to. I'm just doing an epically ****** job of it. -Page 14 of Tessa Waye's diary This story is pretty amazing. I was so scared after reading it that I double checked my wardrobes (just in case), my whole bedroom and my computer. Yep, I'm like that. Despite my compulsive reaction of being afraid of... well... everything, I couldn't stop reading this book. The mystery was way too much. I couldn't stop thinking what really happened to Tessa, what was her story, what was going to happen and, most important, who was the bad guy. We don't have guns. My mom keeps the knives locked up... There has to be another way. -Page 51 of Tessa Waye's diary The characters are something different. And I loved it. The main character Wick, is strong, kind of badass and has seen how messy and awful life can be. She has her fears and insecurities, like any other person. She has an awful past and she just feels the need to protect the only person she has left and that she loves the most: her sister, Lily. I couldn't keep thinking about her as a mother to Lily, even If she didn't intent to be. And I truly admire her. What also makes you laugh a lot is her relationship with her school mates. Not what they do to her, but her interactions after that with Griff. She's afraid of standing out, but she can't help it. She need to do some remark or comment when someone is being mean or bitchy. But what makes you just love her is her sarcastic humor and badass attitude. I'm not sure I really can describe her, so here's an example of her humor: Jenna has a finely ground glitter smeared across her face and shoulders, and I can't really stop staring. She kind of.... twinkles. I'm sure Jenna thinks it's fabulous. But I think she looks like she was molested by a fairy. Lily is sweet, innocent and naïve. Everything Wick's not. And Wick's want to keep her that way. She believes everything's okay because they now have a home and two foster parents than seem to care about them and that anyone is capable of being bad, apart from their father. I didn't like just one tiny little thing; how she blames Wick. For everything bad that comes their way. I wanted to scream: "She's protecting you, ungrateful girl!". But I remember that Lily is a little sweet, innocent kid and that she is the bait in this story, so I couldn't yell at her. How could I? And Griff... Wow, that boy brings sexy and hot to the nerdy team. He's, what Wick's says, a nerd with some good and hot attributes that would make you faint or/and scream. He's a good boy, even when he wants to be a bad one. He's totally adorable. And he calls Wick, Wicked. Hot, good, nerd and funny. I might be in love, again. "Okay, fine, but close the window after me." Griff's devious grin has returned. He straddles my windowsill with more grace than you would think such a thin, tall guy would have. "You never know who might climb up that tree again, Wicked" And what really stole my heart was that we really cared about Wick. Not the Oh-I-just-saw-you-so-call-me-maybe kind. He saw her, really saw her, a long time ago and he was waiting, I don't really know, something from her, maybe a normal conversation and something more. But it definitely steals your heart. "Three years, Wicked. I waited three years, and you were worth every damn second," What truly impress you is how Romily Bernard created a perfect teenage romance in the middle of all the suspense, mystery and thriller, without losing the mysterious touch that truly defines this story. Find Me captivate me from the first page. And I'm not just talking about the amazing cover that reminds me of some sort of hacking code and the promise of mystery that this story brings its readers, I'm talking about the actual story. Wick's story. I loved everything: the suspense, the romance, the mystery, the creepy parts and the anxious parts. Yep, there's also an anxious part. "Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are..." Romily Bernard couldn't have write a better debut novel and I'm truly proud and honored to have had the chance to host a blog tour for her mind-blowing book. I'm giving this story a five gorjuss well-deserved dolls and I'm looking forward to reading more stories by this incredible author. And, definitely, will be waiting anxiously to read the following books in the Find Me series. Because, Book Addicts, there's more mystery coming our way! I hated that heroine. You know, the girl from Twilight. She just... got consumed by Edward. She didn't just fade into him. He devoured her. I said I'd never be like that, and yet... here I am. I feel like he's eaten away every part of me. -Page 31 of Tessa Waye's diaryshow more
