When she’s sent to live with her grandmother, away from school and friends, Claire has a chance for a fresh start. Just when Claire thinks she can handle things, she runs into Todd – the son of the man who caused the car accident.

At first, Claire wants nothing to do with him, but the more time they spend together, the more she hates to admit her feelings. She’s slowly falling in love with Todd.

Now, Claire’s father wants to move and take Claire with him. But she can’t go. Not now when everything is falling into place, and she’s just now finding herself. Claire’s defiant. She won’t leave Greenwood, her new friends, her grandmother, or Todd.

Can Claire find the strength to let her dad go on with his life while leaving her behind to live hers, or will she allow the guilt and shame of surviving the accident pull her back under?

Finding Me is a Contemporary book about a girl in a wheelchair called Claire and a guy called Todd. Finding Me is Kelly Gunderman’s debut novel.

When I started reading Finding Me, I thought this book was going to focus on love but it’s more about finding and accepting yourself, grief, family and friendship. I really liked that it wasn’t just about love, I love reading books where important things are being discussed or real-life problems occur in them.

I really liked the characters. Claire and Todd been through a lot and still they’re great people. Claire’s been struggling since her mum died but because of Todd everything’s changing for her. The same goes for Todd. His dad is in prison, he hasn’t the best situation at home but being with Claire changes things for him.

Finding Me is Kelly Gunderman’s debut novel and I think she did an amazing job! Finding Me was such a good and quick read and I cannot wait to read more books by her!
