Finding me is my kind of story. When I read the blurb I knew it would be for me. Claire and her mum were in accident. It changed their future forever. Unfortunately Claire’s mum didn’t make it and Claire is left in a wheelchair.

Claire’s now lives with her grandmother and her dad has moved on with someone else. When she starts her new school the son of the drunk driver is a student. Todd is nothing like his dad. Can something so bad also inspire a connection worth having?

This is more than a roma

Original review

This book was provided by the author through Chapter by Chapter in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Kelly Gunderman and Chapter by Chapter!

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

Original review: A Novel Glimpse

Claire is a sixteen year old who lost both the use of her legs and her mother in a car accident. She’s forced to change schools when her father dumps her on her grandmother’s doorstep. Starting a new school and making friends is hard enough without the added pressure of being around Todd, the son of the man who put Claire in a wheelchair and killed her mother. Claire’s just made friends and figured out that she might have more in common with Todd than she thought

What I liked

The first thing that I immediately liked was the authors writing style. I didn’t have any problems getting into the book and was directly feeling like a character in this book. Which is always a great thing if you’re asking for my opinion!

Another thing I liked was the attachment to some of the characters. There were some characters that you just had to like or had to hate. There was no in between. You either liked them or hated them. Gunderman did a great job writing her characters a

When I started reading Finding Me, I was expecting a contemporary young adult romance. But this book is so much more. It has a little bit of everything- dealing with loss, adjusting to a new way of life after a life-altering car accident, feeling old friends drifting away, finding new friends at a new school, family drama, and a new relationship with an unexpected love. This book was such a quick read too! Claire's relationship with her grandmother is so perfect and allowed her to maintain her c ...more

A charming YA read. Claire, the main character now lives with her grandma after her mother’s tragic death and faces a new town, new school and new friends. To begin with I felt like Claire was rather Whiney and I didn’t like her, however as the character grew more and more I learnt to fall in love with her. The new friends she makes you instantly love, the type of kids you wanted to be friends with at school. Her father however is another kettle of fish. A horrible character I could never be fon ...more

But even then, it was really hard to enjoy the story when the first part of the book read as though I was reading a computer manual. Very clear and concise and communicated perfectly but stated very matter of factly.

The story itself was kind of interesting. Finding Me talks about forgiveness and accepting new changes into your life, especially after a horrific accident that leads to completely changing the way you live.

But the story itself didn’t pick up unti
