Overview

Grief brought Finley to Ireland. Love will lead her home.

Finley Sinclair is not your typical eighteen-year-old. She s witty, tough, and driven. With an upcoming interview at the Manhattan music conservatory, Finley needs to compose her audition piece. But her creativity disappeared with the death of her older brother, Will.

She decides to study abroad in Ireland so she can follow Will s travel journal. It s the place he felt closest to God, and she s hopeful being there will help her make peace over losing him. So she agrees to an exchange program and boards the plane.

Beckett Rush, teen heartthrob and Hollywood bad boy, is flying to Ireland to finish filming his latest vampire movie. On the flight, he meets Finley. She s the one girl who seems immune to his charm. Undeterred, Beckett convinces her to be his assistant in exchange for his help as a tour guide.

Once in Ireland, Finley starts to break down. The loss of her brother and the pressure of school, her audition, and whatever it is that is happening between her and Beckett, leads her to a new and dangerous vice. When is God going to show up for her in this emerald paradise?

Then she experiences something that radically changes her perspective on life. Could it be God convincing her that everything she s been looking for has been with her all along?

Finley Sinclair is many things: an heiress, an accomplished musician, a reformed wild child, and a grieving sister. In an attempt to feel close to both God and her brother, who was killed in a terrorist bombing, Finley becomes an exchange student in the same Irish village her brother visited several years earlier. Finley becomes fast friends with her host family and strikes up an uneasy relationship with a Robert Pattinson–like movie star who is in Ireland filming his latest vampire flick. While this has all the makings of an earnest YA Christian romance novel, Jones (A Charmed Life series) throws readers a curve by very gradually revealing that Finley has an eating disorder. While this novel has some similarities to Laurie Halse Anderson’s Wintergirls—another YA novel about an anorexic teenager—Jones’s decision to leave Finley’s “issues” unnamed until the very last pages of the novel is troubling. Finley has problems, but her life is also glamorous. The novel strikes dissonant tones, unsuccessfully combining sprightly teen romance with life-or-death topics. From the very beginning, Finley is counting calories and denying herself food, but no one takes note until the final third of the novel. And even then, the eating disorder is described as “the beginning of anorexia” brought on by grief and stress. For young readers, the mixed messages this novel sends about a very serious condition may be problematic. Ages 14–up. (Oct.)
