Finding Me Review

Finding me
Dawn brazil

4.5 stars!!!

Sixteen-year-old Chloe Carmichael’s perfect world is in chaos.

It’s not because she has a vision of her boyfriend murdered. And then he’s found dead exactly as she saw. It’s not because she suddenly has the ability to move objects when she’s upset. It’s kinda cool to close a door without touching it. It’s not her overbearing mother who only cares about appearances. Chloe’s grown accustomed to her family's distance.

So what has Chloe cringing in fear?

It’s a love that defies reason. It demands her attention. But Chloe struggles with a love that exposes the soul. What will her family think? What will her friends think? And is she worthy of his love.

It’s having to become another person for a new group of people. Chloe knows she’s not perfect but apparently she was when she was Amanda in another life. Her new friends won’t let her forget. It’s the stench of death that hoovers over her every move. It’s the threat of finality as she tries to acclimate to a life of super human proportions. It’s an enemy she can’t see and can be anyone she’s ever known. But her enemy knows her well. She’s the lone person with the ability to destroy him. But she doesn’t remember.

And it’s never discovering who she really is before finality meets reality.

My Thoughts…

This book was pretty amazing. I got sucked in right from the beginning of the story. The story was interesting and something that I have not read a lot about. Chloe’s character goes through the shock of her life and learns she has a love that has been with her across time and dimensions.

I loved that we got to see the growth of Chloe’s character. She doesn’t have her memories from another life that she was told she has lived so she has to learn everything again. She scared and doesn’t know who to trust but she tries. Chloe gets to grow into someone completely knew and she gets to fix the things she is not happy about in her life.

I loved all of the characters. They each brought something new to the story and they each brought something out in Chloe.  Each character brings out a trait in Chloe’s personality that she needed. Raja was able to be the person that pushed Chloe. Raja was harsh but it was better than everyone else who was stressing the timeline but wouldn’t give her the push she needed. Jill was there when she was questioning the love between her and Chris. She was the best friend every girl needed.

Chris was pretty awesome. He never gave up on Chloe. The only thing I had a problem with was that he kept pushing her to be Amanda. I loved that she didn’t let him try and push her to be someone she wasn’t. Eventually he got to know the Chloe she was now. What Chloe, with the help of Chris, finds out is that she has been Amanda all along. She was just too scared and confused to realize it.

The book was a really fun read. I enjoyed every second of it. I can’t wait to read the next one. Oh and the cliff hanger is really mean. I had to read the last line over a few times I was so shocked.

So be ready cause you will never see it coming!
