Review: Finding It, by Cora Carmack

16172638

Kelsey has decided to spend a few months in Europe trying to find herself. No responsibilities. No parents. No problem. It’s seems easy enough to do. But when you grow up in an unloved household with worthless parents, finding yourself is harder than it looks. She has made bad choices, in trying to find people who will love her. She gives everything away, but gets nothing in return.

She finds herself running into Jackson Hunt on more than one occasion. He intrigues her and she wants him. It was annoying the way she constantly tried to get him to move faster, when he didn’t want to. I felt bad for him. He tried to maintain a hand’s off approach, but that didn’t work out so well.

He convinces her to go on an adventure with him, for a week, and see the what the world has in store. He slowly shows her that she worth more than she thinks, and that she can do whatever she wants.

“People find home in new places, new dreams, new people all the time. Home should feel effortless, like gravity.”

Their adventures were quite fun to read. I wish I was brave enough to do them. But I’m a chicken, so I live through books.

There was a bit of a twist towards the end. I never saw it coming. There’s a side of Jackson that I was shocked to find out. Kelsey was devastated. It destroyed everything she thought was the truth. I was quite mad myself.

But, in the end, she found her place in this world and found herself.

“I didn’t believe you when you told me I would find another place to call home.”

“This feels like home”

I received this ARC for an honest review.
