Review: Finding Charlie

Finding Charlie Finding Charlie by Katie O'Rourke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Charlie, a young woman, has gone missing and her family cannot seem to find her. Her father and her older sister, Olivia, are scared and don't know what to do. The one thing that they don't know is that when they are trying to find Charlie, she's trying to find herself.

This book does a great job of working with both meanings of the title--a physical search to find Charlie by her family, and the search that Charlie does to find herself. The synopsis leads readers to believe that this is much more of a mystery, but really it ends up being a solid family drama with a few twists.

The only part about this book that seemed abrupt is the ending. While the family was just finding all of the pieces and considering how they fit together again, the story's over. It would be interesting to see what happens with this family in the future.
