After surviving an infamous family tragedy, sixteen-year-old Kennedy Jones has made it her mission to keep her brother's search through the cosmos alive. But then something disturbs the frequency on his radio telescope--a pattern registering where no signal should transmit.

In a neighboring county, seventeen-year-old Nolan Chandler is determined to find out what really

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? Is something

I don't know if I'm going to bother with a real review because I'm feeling lazy and don't have a lot to say and I'm just posting this because I HATE with all of my dark passion the fact that Goodreads keeps telling me that I'm 2 books behind on my reading challenge. I know, I know, already! I am reading as fast as I freaking can!

I requested this from Overdrive thinking it was another secret filled thriller about awful people doing awful things - as they usually do but that wasn't this book. I

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. Review coming closer to the release date!

This was the first book I read on vacation. I didn’t realize it was YA when I put it on hold. It turned out to be a decent, easy read...so perfect for vacation but ultimately a little forgettable. The ending was a bit of a stretch. 3.5 stars

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. 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 ...more

FINALLY!!!!
My first 5 stars book of the year.

I was getting worried

Anyway, I loved this book from the writing style to the characters everything was really good.

I didn't know what to expect from the book I thought it was going to be purely mistery, but I found myself really excited that it contained a little bit of Sci-fi.

I loved Kennedy and Nolan. They were a dynamic duo. And uncle Joe absolutely has my heart.

What I find annoying in most thrillers now a days that it is all about the twists, it

“sometimes i think he can sense something we don’t.
and sometimes i think how things can still come back, even after we stop looking for them.”


throughout this book, i kept having this nostalgic feeling while reading. i can’t quite place what it was about this book, perhaps the setting, but because of this, it will be secured in my mind and heart for quite some time.

this is a story about two teens who have both suffered through a tragedy. who are lost and are trying to figure out what went

Tragedy mixed with a bit of mysticism is the premise of Miranda’s book, Come Find Me. A tale laced with mystery and murder - one I’m happy to give 4.5 stars to. It kept me guessing which is always worthy of my love and stars.

Initial post reading thoughts:

I got sucked into this one real quick. 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

This is a story of two teenagers who have endured tragic loss. Nolan's brother is missing but he feels as if his brother is reaching out to him from beyond and he's determined to follow any and all leads. Kennedy's living with her uncle and finds a signal on her brother's equipment that doesn't make sense. Where is this pattern come from. 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

I wouldn't call this an entertaining book, it was certainly engaging but not fun to read. In fact, I found it quite blue.

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.

In spite of what I wrote before, I truly like the way

Wtf this took me like, 2 weeks to finish cuz it was boring af. Thought it would be sci-fi or supernatural-y like Stranger Things but nope, just an average YA thriller. Talk about misleading advertising.

I am so excited to be writing this review. I am a huge Megan Miranda fan, I first read one of her books a few years back and I knew I needed to read more of her work pretty much right away. So I slowly started picking up more of her work, then sometime during this past year (I want to say it was in the summer) I heard she was writing a YA novel and I was like yes, please!! Give me!! Fast forward to the present when I was scrolling through my Libby account one night and bam there is the audiobook ...more

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

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. 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

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.

The cover and title caught my eye for a listing of YA thrillers and then the blurb sealed the deal with mentions of missing people and hidden messages in strange signal frequencies. 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

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!

I'd give this 3.75. As always with Megan Miranda, the book is well written, but I think "the plot lost track of itself" - if that makes any sense. Seemed to be doing very well, but slow, at the beginning. Then, I think the ending kind of went in a different direction from where I thought the story was headed, and got a bit "meandering". Still a good read, because her writing is always good, but the plot went off on a tangent and got hung up on several details which distracted you from the main ...more

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 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%+

Enjoyable, but I wanted more

Maybe it's my own preference for the study of the unknown, but when so much of the supernatural is put forward in a narrative yet it never really comes to fruition and instead relies solidly on reality, then I can't help but feel a little let down.

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

I'm probably a bit partial, as a fan of Megan Miranda, but I really really loved this book.

I've read Miranda's more 'paranormal' novels and her straight mysteries, and before this book I would say her talent lies in the mysteries. However, this book was a bit of both and I felt like she executed it so well.

What I loved so much about this book is that it had so much to say, it wasn't just a 'whodunnit'. There was a lot about grief and how that effects a persons life after. In the end, there was

Sixteen-year-old Kennedy Jones has yet to come to terms with the violent act that has destroyed her family. Seventeen-year-old Nolan Chandler has been searching for answers since his brother went missing two years before. When the two teenagers get inexplicable signals that bring them together, will the pair be able to get the answers that they seek?

This YA mystery has a touch of science fiction, which does lead the book astray in my opinion. The compelling nature of both Kennedy and Nolan's
