Come Find Me
From the New York Times bestselling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger comes a captivating thriller about two teens who connect when each discovers a mysterious radio frequency, which suggests their family tragedies are mysteriously connected. After surviving an infamous family tragedy, sixteen-year-old Kennedy Jones has made it her mission to keep her brother's search through the cosmos alive. But then something disturbs the frequency on his radio telescope--a pattern registering where no signal should transmit.In a neighboring county, seventeen-year-old Nolan Chandler is determined to find out what really happened to his brother, who disappeared the day after Nolan had an eerie premonition. There hasn't been a single lead for two years, until Nolan picks up an odd signal--a pattern coming from his brother's bedroom.Drawn together by these strange signals--and their family tragedies--Kennedy and Nolan search for the origin of the mysterious frequency. But the more they uncover, the more they believe that everything's connected--even their pasts--as it appears the signal is meant for them alone, sharing a message that only they can understand. Is something coming for them? Or is the frequency warning them about something that's already here?

Kennedy's living with her uncle and finds a signal on her brother's equipment that doesn't make sense. Where is this pattern come from. Circumstances bring Nola and Kennedy together in their search as it appears things are too coincidental to not have a meaning and they are determined to find it.The book starts off a bit slow but pick up towards the middle of the book. This is a story about grief, the aftermath of tragedies, how families cope and unstoppable need to two people who need closure but to do so, they need to look to each other, within themselves and at those surrounding them.A proper sci-fi-ish, paranormal-ish, suspense that's a thrill for a younger audience. While the themes can get a bit morbid, I did enjoy the two different sides in how families are dealing with their own personal tragedies. Maybe it was because of the slower start that the ending felt a little bit rushed but for the most part, this one delivers. I've always enjoyed all of Miranda's novels and will certainly read anything she puts out for us readers. Those who love the YA thriller genre should surely pick this one up - don't let the slow beginning deter you. The build up of these characters resonate. Thanks to Crown for this copy.

Everything about Come Find Me was new to me and I was all set to plunge in for an exciting listen. My instinct was spot on. I loved this one and it only got better as it went down it's twisting path to the end.Come Find Me is a standalone YA thriller with sci-fi elements. It is dual narrated by the pair of protagonists who each have their own horrific past experiences of loss and receive the mysterious signal. Kennedy and Nolan were strangers until they joined together in a quest to get the answers to the signal which led them to facing the dark shadows of their past which has reached out to them in the present.I enjoyed how the book gave me one impression, particularly about Kennedy, when the story began and then peeled back the layers to reveal that things were something different. I don't have a lot of patience for teens causing more drama than necessary or being so self-absorbed that adults look stupid or like the enemy. It started down that road with Kennedy and her young uncle who was doing the best he could along with her withdrawal from the other kids, but then more comes out and her issues made a lot more sense. Nolan's situation was pretty cut and dry, sadly, from the beginning until much later.While I do have to constantly remind myself that I'm listening to a book about and for the Young Adult crowd, at the same time, I found that this author nailed it on the right maturity level for thinking and actions of her teen leads and for how they would be after experiencing the tragedies they did. In fact, I found them more well adjusted than I'm pretty sure that I would be. Their gradual strangers to friends and then friends to romantic interest was at a good pace and their relationships with others around them were right where they needed to be, too. Considering what she was dealing with, Kennedy landed well with her mom's young grad student uncle who I really liked even when Kennedy put him through his paces with her grief, anger, and secrets. But, it was Nolan my heart went out to. His older brother disappeared and from then on, he became a non-entity in his own home and with his parents. He lost everything when Liam disappeared and not just Liam.The mystery of the signals was sensational. I loved how the author had me totally guessing what we were dealing with there. Extra-terrestrial? Paranormal? Ordinary mystery? I kept bouncing around with my guesses as twists unveiled more.YA Warnings: mild language, moderate violenceCome Find Me had two narrators with Michael Crouch taking Nolan's part and Jorjeana Marie narrating Kennedy. I thought they were both fabulous narrators and this story came alive and was taunt with suspense and emotion because of their work. Their voices were a tad too mature for the teens, but I didn't mind, and would definitely rather that than trying too hard and distracting me. They certainly caught the tone and voiced the whole cast of characters well.All in all, this was an incredible listen and I would recommend it to YA and adults alike who enjoy sci-fi thrillers.My thanks to Listening Library for the opportunity to listen to this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I will never not read a book by Megan. She is such an awesome person and author and I have loved all of her books so far. Have been so very excited for this newest one, and read it as soon as I was able to. And my gosh. This book was worth the wait. Once I began reading I simply could not stop. It was so good. Five stars.There is so much going on in this book and I have no idea how to write it all down. Will not include any big spoilers, I will only share my feelings about it all. And gosh. I ha I will never not read a book by Megan. She is such an awesome person and author and I have loved all of her books so far. Have been so very excited for this newest one, and read it as soon as I was able to. And my gosh. This book was worth the wait. Once I began reading I simply could not stop. It was so good. Five stars.There is so much going on in this book and I have no idea how to write it all down. Will not include any big spoilers, I will only share my feelings about it all. And gosh. I have a lot of those. This book was such a huge mystery. And I loved every moment of it. It was full of secrets and I loved that I had not guessed a single one, lol.This book is told from two different point of views. Sixteen year old Kennedy, whom I adored so much. And seventeen year old Nolan. Whom was the cutest. These two characters were just so amazing and I loved them to pieces. Both written very well. And both point of views so good. It takes about a hundred pages for them to finally meet, how rude, haha. But I didn't mind, because those pages were needed to get to know them better. And they did sort of talk together a little before, without knowing who the other one was. But oh. When they finally do meet. Gosh. I shipped them beyond words. And reading about them becoming friends and getting to know each other was the very best. Especially loved their small romance. Not too big, but so very good.And that is all I will say of the romance. It was small, but it was perfect. No drama. No jealousy. So good. And these two precious characters fits together perfectly. This book is about getting to know them both. Getting to know the tragic things that have happened in their families. They had different stories, but the same heartbreak. And getting to know everything about all of it ruined me. There are new things getting told through the whole book and that was just so well done. So many surprises. Good but also bad ones.So very much heartbreak. I will not say too much about it, only the things that we get to know right away. Nolan lives with his parents, and he had an older brother. Whom disappeared two years ago, along with their dog, while they were in a park together. There was zero sign of him. And there has not been for two years. His parents grew a bit obsessed about wanting to search for other missing children too. And they sort of forgot about Nolan in the process. This precious boy needed way more love than what he got. Aw.For Kennedy her family tragedy happened only half a year ago. It is not revealed what really happened for some time, only that is was bad, and she now lives with her uncle and not her mother and brother. It was easy to imagine what could have happened, as there was a murder. But it was also so complicated and full of secrets and I loved getting to know it all. It was beyond heartbreaking and sad, though, and my heart was always aching for Kennedy. I loved how she was able to live life, after everything. I adored her.This book tells the story of Kennedy and Nolan. How they meet, and why. She is looking into space for her brother, searching for alien life. He is looking for ghosts, searching for his brother. They both end up getting a weird signal on their search things, and they end up speaking about it online. I liked how all of that happened. I liked learning about searching for the signal, trying to figure out what it all meant. A little bit supernatural. And it was awesome. I loved reading how everything fit together. So clever. So so good.There is much going on in this book. Yet it was also not nearly long enough, and I wish there was more of these most precious characters. Sigh. I haven't mentioned much of the plot at all. But gosh, it was beyond amazing. There are new leads on what happened to Nolan's brother. It was cruel, the whole investigation. Hmph. But so interesting. I loved all the small clues. I loved all the reveals. Although the ending was very heartbreaking. Oh. But so good too, and written very well. This book ruined me. In all the best ways too.I will not say more about this one. Only that Come Find Me was perfection. Full of mystery and suspense. Filled with surprises and some romance. Getting to read about Kennedy and Nolan spending all the time together was so so good. This book freaked me out. And I loved every moment of it. My heart was always breaking for both the characters. Yet there was hope too. And it was precious. I think you should all read this book. Because you will love it. Heartbreaking, but so very good. And very worth it. Megan is the best.---This review was first posted on my blog, Carina's Books, here: https://carinabooks.blogspot.com/2019...

Something has happened in Kennedy’s family and she is forced to live with her uncle.

    3.5 stars - I was totally engaged the entire book and the ending was exactly what it should have been but... I was a little disappointed in how, err, wimpy (?) it got there at the end. It was brutal the whole way through and then last few pages were, “oh, man...” Still, a very good mystery (2 of them!) for a YA audience.

His parents become consumed by their grief as they drown themselves and their home in the search for not just their son but other families missing kids as well. Nolan seems like a good kid whose really, really lost. His parents are so focused on other people’s problems and 100% completely avoiding all their own with the exception of their missing older son. Since his brother went missing Nolan has become fixated on finding his brother in his own way, paranormal/ghost hunting means.Kennedy herself has gone through something herself recently, losing her mom and mom’s boyfriend in a tragedy that takes a long time to be addressed and finds herself living with her uncle. At night, when her uncle is asleep she sneaks back to her home to retrieve data from her brother’s machines that he created to seek out answers from the universe. After one such night Kennedy pulls a signal that shouldn’t be possible, a signal that Nolan also has.These two join together for different reasons, thinking the signal ties into their own personal tragedies and can find the answers they need. Along the way they find an understanding friend in the other that may be just what they need to keep moving forward.The first half of the book is a little slow and bogged down with a lot of hints at Kennedy’s “that night” story. They dance around it for a bit and give you Nolan’s story straight up. After that though the second half moves fairly quickly and things are figured out and discovered.I enjoyed both main characters. Nolan is a quiet, contemplative guy that has gotten used to playing second place to other people (his parents barely seem to remember they have a second son, tbh he makes me sad. The kid deserved better.) Kennedy is bossy and assertive, she knows what she wants and she’s not going to let people’s view on her family tragedy hold her back. As a side character Kennedy’s guardian, the uncle, has his hands full, he wasn’t expecting to ever be guardian to his almost 17 year old niece, he’s pretty young himself and he is definitely trying his best. I really appreciated his character.This books is a fun, enjoyable read, but it’s also a YA mystery, so teenagers make some pretty dumb decisions... looking at you Kennedy, but if you enjoy YA mystery definitely hit this book up.

    I love Miranda’s writing talent since she fills her novels with suspense and down to earth characters. The idea of this story was a good one. A girl who lives with her uncle after her mother and mother’s boyfriend were murdered. A boy whose brother disappeared two years earlier. A signal that connects the girl and boy together as they start a mission to find answers for the things left unsaid.I couldn’t get into the story.

One of the reasons was because we’re not told any information until 40%+ that was purposely written that way to keep the reader engaged. The opposite happened with me and I was frustrated that both characters were tiptoeing around “that day” and “that night”. I also wasn’t fond of Kennedy. She was impulsive and uncaring when it came towards her uncle. Multiple times she sneaks out of the house to go exploring/finding answers with Nolan and she doesn’t tell her uncle where they are going. Her uncle freaks, lectures and grounds her, and guess what happens the next day? She does it again. The process repeated a few times and added to the frustration factor.If Kennedy had told the truth to the police from the beginning, then she would’ve been in a different situation regarding her brother. But then we wouldn’t have a plot since the focus would be on Nolan and his missing brother sans Kennedy. Kennedy also lacked awareness which was another reason the obvious answers didn’t connect for her. I wish this had been written to focus solely on Nolan instead of two mysteries that both teens were trying to solve. Nolan’s brother’s disappearance could have been explored more deeply instead of random memories leading Nolan to the answers and a subplot on Kennedy’s memories.Still, I was glad I read this and will pick up Miranda’s next novel.Thank you NetGalley for an ARC.

Maybe if they work together, they can find the answers that will bring their families peace. It is through their shared loss that they find potential friendship and romance in each other. Kennedy lost everything after her family was involved in a deadly tragedy. She is currently living alone with her uncle and he is preparing to sell her family’s home. Kennedy doesn’t want to lose her home or its connection to her family. Also, she has continued to check her brother’s super computer in the shed for any contact from outer space. After a typical check on the readouts, Kennedy notices something strange. Seeking advice from scientists who might know more, she posts her findings on a discussion board. Two years ago Nolan’s older brother vanished without a trace. His parents threw themselves into finding their son and helping other families look for their own lost children. Nolan thinks that there is a better way to find his brother, especially because he instinctively knew when his brother disappeared. Nolan uses ghost hunting equipment to search for leads back to his brother. When one of his machines gives off a weird reading, he checks the internet and finds a post on a discussion board that is describing the same thing. Kennedy and Nolan are brought together and it is through their shared connection that they hope to find answers. I enjoyed this book. I thought it was great pairing alien hunters with ghost hunters. I loved that it was never entirely clear what genre this book fell into. Is it sci-fi, is it a realistic mystery? Are aliens abducting teen guys, or is there a killer on the hunt? The plot moved quickly and I liked the main characters.

The plot is well developed and all of the reveals I didn't see coming. However, I was disappointed about the direction the book took. The book gives strong vibes that all of the events that launched this story have alien/paranormal ties. But that is not the case. While the ending is done well and it ties everything up and leaves no strings, I still felt disappointed. This book is definitely more relatable to Frequency [without the time travel] than it is to Close Encounter. I wouldn't necessarily compare it to Strange Things, as that definitely goes in a wild direction. But it does share the same mystery and weirdness aspect as the beginning of the first season. I just really felt the promise of something other and was left with a completely different book.All in all. Definitely pick this book up, but know that you will not find aliens or alternate dimensions, but a story with unexplained events and connections.[ Honest Review of Advanced Reader Copy received at Yallfest]

I couldn't stop reading and finished it in a day. Ms Miranda does a fantastic job with both characters, Kennedy and Nolan, and their alternating point of views. The slow reveal of what happened to them individually is well worth it. Highly recommended!

It was full of mystery and heartache, two things that don't often show up in novels together but it worked so well in this story.

The two team up to find the missing pieces of the mysteries that surround the worst events in both of their lives and possibly find the truth. I have been a fan of Megan Miranda's since I read "Fracture" way back in 2012. I love how she can build a mystery that feels like it has paranormal elements but is also based in reality. I was excited to read "Come Find Me" and there are parts that I really thought were well done. Kennedy and Nolan and their grief felt very realistic and the evolution their relationship felt organic. However, the ending felt a little convoluted. Miranda makes Kennedy and Nolan's mysteries come together in a way that felt a little too convenient for my taste. This was an enjoyable read and I will keep reading Miranda's books but I was a little disappointed with this one.I received an eARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The climax turned out to be very loosely similar, and very unprecedented (thank God!)The pace is so brisk, the 300-odd pages can be finished in a day, if you do not have any unavoidable circumstances like I had (day job, *sob*).Character Development: 8/10Plot: 8/10Quality of writing: 8/10Pace: 9/10Thought provoking: 9/10Entertaining: 9/10Enjoyable: 9/10
