Reviewed by Alice DiNizo for Readers' Favorite

This is the story of a family in crisis. Sloan was only fifteen when her father died. Her mother just left, leaving Sloan to take care of her sister. At eighteen, Sloan is a senior in high school. The world is closing in on her, the pressure is high. Her fifteen year old sister is making bad decisions. Sloan is working hard to be accepted into a renowned art program and working to earn a swim title. Meeting the new kid at school changes many things.

Finding You demonstrates the complications that life brings. It demonstrates the importance and complexity of relationships. One of the many things I liked about this book is the way it defines hope and love. Despite all that Sloan goes through she always manages to find hope. I also enjoyed the way the book demonstrated that we can turn to our passions, such as art to help us find emotional release.

This is a realistic contemporary romance that will bring out emotions in the reader. Kehoe skillfully moves back and forth between the narrative of the main characters, and has fully developed the secondary characters making them an asset to the story line. Finding You by Kristen Kehoe is an entertaining read that will appeal to young adult and adults.
