    Excellent

    A wonderfully written story of a young woman struggling with the loss of her mother now being pushed by her father to once again live a full life. We are taken on a journey with Sienna to a devastated Indonesia where she will be working with a humanitarian team. Sienna is determined to get through this but never did she expect the life changing events that were to come. The author did a fantastic job of painting the picture of the local with her very descriptive writing style and making us feel as though we are witnessing Sienna's journey first hand. Definitely a book I recommend.

    4.5 Stars!

    This book has been on my radar since I read and LOVED Heidi Kling's, Paint My Body Red. I had even found a second-hand hardcover, but had yet to read it. When I discover there would be a revised second edition (with a different title,) I jumped at the chance to read it early. I had my suspicions that it would be something that I might enjoy and I wasn't wrong. Where I Found You tackles the effects of death and trauma on its survivors, while tempering it with a healing romance. High school senior Sienna is still reeling from her mother's death and agrees to travel with Team Hope to Indonesia after their devastating tsunami (Based on the 2004 Indonesian tsunami.) As Sienna immerses herself in helping young orphans, she also bonds with the older Deni, who has lost his family to the tsunami. Their growing romance was sweet, but also very intense with the realities of time, culture and logistics. While I wanted to keep rooting for them as a couple, the realities of their circumstances kept me pragmatic. Because of that, I was able to see this book as something far greater than just a YA romance. Watching how this American team had to be respectful of culture, customs, etc, was enlightening and well-handled. Other than a few parts feeling a little rushed, I enjoyed everything about this book. Even the ending. While some readers prefer to read what they deem as a "true" happily-ever-after, I'm fine with a happy-for-now or other unconventional endings. Yet, the author has now written a sequel. As much as I was okay with the ending of this book, I now can't wait to see what happens next with these wonderful characters. (This is my review of an advanced copy of Where I Found You via Entangled Teen and Netgalley.)
