Summary: 
When Hanley Helton discovers a boy living in her garage, she knows she should kick him out. But Nate is too charming to be dangerous. He just needs a place to get away, which Hanley understands. Her own escape methods—vodka, black hair dye, and pretending the past didn't happen—are more traditional, but who is she to judge?
Nate doesn't tell her why he's in her garage, and she doesn't tell him what she's running from. Soon, Hanley¹s trading her late-night escapades for all-night conversations and stolen kisses. But when Nate¹s recognized as the missing teen from the news, Hanley isn't sure which is worse: that she's harboring a fugitive, or that she's in love with one.

Review: 
Honestly, when I read the premise for Where You'll Find Me I thought it sounded.. ok. And that's being nice.. but then I started reading and I couldn't stop. This book had me hooked. 

The only thing that irked me and made me give it 4 instead of 5 stars is you'd think that a female teenager that realizes there's a boy on the run staying in her garage would have done something and oh i don't know.. Kicked him out? But for some reason she couldn't. She had this apathy for him for some reason. I was sorta annoyed that she would allow that type of thing happen. The dangers that could come along with that...

But I looked past that because what unfolded was this story of heart-break, loss, grief, cancer, death, suicide, and then finally we see them fall in love. They were both dealing with this huge amount of grief and by meeting were able to build themselves back up together and learn to let go. They helped each other grow and become really amazing individuals. It had a lot of very real and heart breaking issues that I don't always see in young adult books these days. It was refreshing.

I definitely recommend people to pick this book up! There was so much juice to this story.. loved it! And I really love the cover as well. I like when I get to put a face to a person in the book. It helps me visualize them. :) I was given an e-copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I received no compensation.
