“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.

I received this book for free from the publisher or author in exchange for an honest review.

Review

This was such an awesome book. I loved the hacking, the mystery/thriller part, the romance,… All of that was seriously great, but I didn’t like the fact that I kind of suspected who the bad buy was, and I was right. This would’ve been a 5 star book if I had absolutely no idea until the very end. But it’s still great!

Wicket is an outsider. Someone the rich people like the call ‘Trash’. She has a bad attitude and loves sarcasm. She and her sister live with their foster parents Bren and Todd. Wick earns some money hacking for other women to spy on their boyfriends/husbands. One day, she receives a diary of a girl she used to be friends with, before her deadbeat dad disappeared. In that diary she finds the words ‘Find Me’. Pretty freaky, but that same day, that girl is found dead. She committed suicide. A morbid game of hide & seek follows. She can count on Griff to help her but, when her dad returns, it only makes things more complicated.

The writing was pretty good in this book. Although it was a tiny bit predictable as for who the bad guy was, the author kept me on edge and I was still wondering what was going on. It had me hooked. Plus the hacking is awesome. I don’t know a thing about that stuff, but I love reading about it. And the romance was great too. It wasn’t rushed or anything in my opinion.

I loved Wick. Seriously. I love her sarcasm and her “don’t-care” attitude. And she’s an awesome hacker. That too. I adored Lily. She’s such a bright and adorable girl! It’s hard not to love and adore her. It really is. Griff was cool. He’s funny and cute and he’s pretty sweet for Wick. The romance wasn’t the main focus, which was great, because that would’ve taken away a lot from the suspense if it was.

OH I loved the little fragments from Tessa’s diary at the start of each chapter. A bit creepy, but still cool. And the cover is also cool.

This book kept me on edge and I almost couldn’t put it away just because I had to figure out the truth. Which is a pretty amazing thing to accomplish with me. I recommend this for fans of the genre. Fans of books about hacking will most likely also love this.

It’s a trick I’ve learned over the years. I stay perfect on the outside so no one knows I’m rotten underneath.

These days, I keep wishing I were someone else even though I kind of am. My new life is crammed on top of me, pinching like it wil never, ever fit. I hate how stupid I feel. Maybe my mom felt like that too. Maybe that’s why she jumped. Makes me wonder if she had the right idea.
