    4 Stars!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟 This was crazy different and a lot of fun to read. In Come Find Me, we follow MC's Kennedy and Nolan. Two teenagers-both whom which have experienced great tragedy, find themselves drawn together by a strange signal. Together, they try to find the source of the mysterious signal. The more they try to find it, the more clues they find things that seem to connect their pasts. The signal seems to be for them alone, something only they both can understand. Who is out there?

I was totally not expecting something with a Stranger things vibe to it, but it has that vibe- in a small way which added so much more to the story. I really liked Kennedy, she was brave and strong willed. She has dealt with a lot of pain in her life but that wont stop her from getting answers. Nolan is dealing with the same thing. Both characters, as they work together- experience a good bit of growth. Each one was there for one another and only made the other stronger. I had no idea where this book was headed and I spent half the book scratching my head. I like when a mystery/thriller ends up stumping me. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome and totally recommend it!

    ORIGINAL REVIEW One of my favorite authors + Stranger Things? I AM CRYING, AND I NEED THIS NOW. Is it too early to start a countdown for 2019? UPDATED REVIEW 11/27/18 Megan Miranda proves yet again she is a killer writing, and this was just the goodness I was looking for. A couple of minor issues that knocked it down to a 4 crown.

(i borrowed it from work aka my library) but, honestly, this has elements of both. it’s a mystery with a little bit of sci-fi sprinkled throughout. (hence the stranger things vibe) overall, i loved this story and it’s one i will think about often. i definitely recommend this if you’re looking for something that will make you think, as well as characters who will tug on your heartstrings. tw for: loss of a loved one, loss of a sibling, talk of missing people, murder.

I spent the day Marie Kondo-ing my bedroom while listening to this audiobook and I was hooked. I couldn't wait to find out how it would all end! -- What I Liked The slow reveals. Right from the start, I needed answers. What happened to Kennedy’s family? What is this weird electronic signal? How are Kennedy and Nolan connected? The answers are not given to us easily. It took some time and patience, but the story slowly unravelled to reveal itself and it had me hooked the entire time. Did we get all of the answers? Not really, and I’ll talk about that later, but we got the ones that mattered most. The mixed genres. Was this a sci-fi novel? A murder mystery? Or a contemporary? I’m not sure, but it definitely felt like a good mixture of all three! It had me wondering which route it was going to take the entire time I was reading. Was there some sort of unexplained force? Was it all just a coincidence? Who knows… The lack of answers. As you could probably tell from the two paragraphs above, I may still seem slightly unsure of what it was that I just read and that’s because I am. I still don’t know if everything that happened and the way that Kennedy and Nolan were connected was all a coincidence or not, but I think that may have been the point. We aren’t supposed to know. Yes, that can be frustrating, but I also don’t mind a little open interpretation for an ending either. -- What I Didn’t Like The lack of answers? Yes, I mentioned that I liked this idea a whole two seconds ago. Does it also bother me? Slightly. I have a very logical way of thinking and part of me really wanted a solid answer, but I accept that I’m not going to get one. However, I really do wish the weird radio signal was explained…unless it was and I just missed it somehow. -- Overall, I really enjoyed Come Find Me by Megan Miranda! I’ve read a few of her adult novels in the past and they’ve been some of my favourite thrillers! I was absolutely hooked from the start of this novel and I can’t wait to read more adult and YA thrillers from her in the future!

    Kennedy Jones has survived a horrible family tragedy. She now lives with her 29-year-old uncle, Joe, and monitors her brother Elliott's radio telescope. Elliott was focused on looking for alien life, so when Kennedy finds a pattern on her brother's telescope, she thinks it might be a sign.

She now lives with her 29-year-old uncle, Joe, and monitors her brother Elliott's radio telescope. Elliott was focused on looking for alien life, so when Kennedy finds a pattern on her brother's telescope, she thinks it might be a sign. Meanwhile, nearby, Nolan Chandler's older brother Liam disappeared two years ago--the day after Nolan had a weird premonition about his disappearance. His parents have become obsessed with the case and those of missing kids in general. They have basically forgotten about their child left behind. When Nolan finds an odd signal in his brother's room, he too wonders if it's a sign. The two signals draw together Nolan and Kennedy. They begin to wonder how things are connected. Or, are they being warned off by a strange force instead? "The brother tells them, with an air of inevitability, that Liam is gone. No, they say, he's with Colby. He's out for a job, He'll be back soon. The premonition tingles like static electricity. The boy and the dog are never seen again." Megan Miranda is an author where I'll read whatever she writes. The topic of this book is slightly bizarre, but it's a completely compelling and fascinating read. I read it in less than 24 hours, as it's very easy-to-read, and I totally fell for the characters. Kennedy and Nolan are united in grief--two kids who have been through so much for being so young. This novel is creepy and often inexplicable, but the plot is really great. I was completely hooked. Kennedy and Nolan are tied together in interesting ways, and there's also a mystery-type story that unfolds as well. There are a couple of great twists that fully surprised me. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. It's compelling and heartfelt, with strong characters and a sort of fun yet creepy undertone. 4 stars. Blog ~ Twitter ~ Facebook ~ Google+ ~ Instagram ~ Smashbomb

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.

Two teenagers whose lives have been shattered meet each other and are willing to believe they are receiving signals that will finally make everything make sense. I guess I misread or misinterpreted what the book was about and was expecting some sci-fi or paranormal twist but I only found wishful thinking and real-life drama.

    Come Find Me is one of those books that you are really better off going into it not knowing much ahead of time. It follows Kennedy whose mother was murdered. She notices a pattern on the radio telescope that she thinks may hold the key to what happened that night. We also follow Nolan whose older brother disappeared into thin air.

He keeps getting signals from his brother's bedroom. He is convinced they are related to the disappearance. This ended up being a pleasant surprise for me. I found myself drawn in right away. I also wasn't able to guess what was really going on; so the wrap-up was a surprise. I enjoyed both Kennedy and Nolan's characters separately as well as their developing friendship. The book gives a good and realistic look at grief and how it affects people differently. For instance, Nolan wants to know what happened to his brother. He devotes all of his free time to searching for him. But his parents end up starting a foundation that looks for other missing kids as well. The foundation takes up all of their time, as well as their home, to the point that it is an obsession. I definitely recommend this book to any YA reader. It's a good mystery without anything graphic or triggering for younger YA readers.

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 violence Come 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 have read and enjoyed two of Megan Miranda's adult thrillers, but I hadn't ever read any of her YA thrillers. This is her newest release, it just came out in January of this year, and I really liked the sound of it. So when I saw that my library had the audiobook, I decided to give it a go.

This is her newest release, it just came out in January of this year, and I really liked the sound of it. So when I saw that my library had the audiobook, I decided to give it a go. And I am really glad I did. Essentially, this book is about two teenagers, Kennedy and Nolan, who have suffered terrible tragedies in their lives are looking everywhere for an explanation to what's happened. Kennedy lost her entire family all in one night. Kennedy has followed in her brother's footsteps and is searching for extraterrestrial life. Nolan's brother went missing without a trace two years earlier. And he believes that somewhere out there, his brother is sending him messages for help. When Kennedy and Nolan both encounter a signal that shouldn't exist, they come together to try to learn exactly how they are connected. As far as thrillers go, this one really kept me on my toes. There were several plot twists that I did not predict at all. I always enjoy when I'm totally surprised by a book and I didn't predict anything that happened in this story. I liked the main characters and I liked the way that their relationship progressed. Yes, there is a romance. But it's slow and completely takes a backseat to the events of the story. I also really like the way Megan Miranda writes mysteries. She's an author I can definitely see myself reading everything from because she really knows how to keep me interested. My only real problem was that at times, the story did feel a little rushed. The ending wrapped up really quickly. And though it wasn't dissatisfying, I felt like it did leave me hanging a little bit. Also, the book keeps teetering towards something supernatural and I really thought it was going to go all the way. And it doesn't quite get there, which left me a little disappointed. I think it would have been so cool if Megan Miranda had added in some kind of otherworldly twist. Overall, a solid YA mystery thriller that I would definitely recommend. I'm glad I picked it up. The audiobook was really well done and the book was really enjoyable to listen to. I'd definitely recommend this if you're looking for a really good YA mystery because this one really delivered.

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, it was certainly different than previous books I've read by Megan Miranda. Overall this was an enjoyable read, I liked the characters and connections made throughout. While I predicted some of the outcome, I certainly didn't make all the connections on my own.

    3.5/5 stars - rounded up for Goodreads Thanks to the publisher for the free copy in exchange for my honest review. This was very different from what I was expecting! COME FIND ME is the newest YA thriller from Megan Miranda, and she will continue to be an auto-buy author for me. I would probably classify this one as more a sci-fi meets paranormal thriller - something to keep in mind is that it does have a slower build to it (I always like knowing this going into a thriller).

I would probably classify this one as more a sci-fi meets paranormal thriller - something to keep in mind is that it does have a slower build to it (I always like knowing this going into a thriller). Nolan and Kennedy have something in common, they have both experienced a tragic loss of a loved one. Something that is never easy to cope with or come to terms with. As they both are looking for answers they happen to cross each others' paths and join forces to get to the bottom of things. I feel like this is more character driven than plot driven, which isn't bad. Miranda does a great job developing the characters and really showing us their struggles to come to terms with the tragedies they have experienced. We get to see how two families try to move forward but also the determination Nolan and Kennedy have to know what truly happened. This is more YA and is a great way for those to get into the thriller genre (if you're looking for something lighter to start with). I will continue to keep my eyes peeled for more from Megan Miranda in the future!

    this book was a total mess. it started out so great and i loved the premise but then it just spiralled into nothing good. i think the main problem was the pacing and control of information; there were so many moments where something that became suddenly crucial to the plot was just dropped in with no context or foreshadowing. the flow of the story was then not organic at all. i really wish i had liked this one better. bummed!

That being said, this is a well-written YA about two teen seeking answers after a familial tragedy. A significant part of the plot is dedicated to learning what really happened in those defining moments and not necessarily the supernatural signal put forward in the description. I liked that the author let us go on that journey instead of stating all the answers to the family tragedies upfront, it definitely kept the pages turning. However, it also felt like plot progress took longer than necessary. My interest did wane during a slow section in the middle of the book and overall many plot elements seemed delayed. I wish more time had been spent really diving into the "signal" both teens are receiving instead of just referencing it in vague terms and that she had dedicated more of the text to the mystery aspects of the story.

    I LOVED THIS A LOT. I don't even care about the negative reviews, especially if it comes from people who mistake this book as a romance. Neither main character—Kennedy and Nolan—are fueled by their love for each other; they care about finding out the truth about what happened to their siblings, and everything was just so well executed. I especially loved all the Stranger Things vibes this book gave me, with the small town setting and the unknown frequencies and the electromagnetic fields. I loved I LOVED THIS A LOT.

    FINALLY a 2019 release that I am obsessed with. I suspected everyone and no one and found this story to be absolutely riveting. Good job diverting attention and also bringing in the unexplainable. This story will be one I won’t soon forget.

His pare Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher I was able to read this book in exchange for an honest review. *** Come Find Me is about two teenagers, Kennedy and Nolan, brought together by loss and a signal that connects them, Two years ago Nolan’s brother went missing without a trace. 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%+ I love Miranda’s writing talent since she fills her novels with suspense and down to earth characters.

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.

    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...
