Emily Murdoch is a writer and poet. She is passionate about animal welfare and offers sanctuary to abused and abandoned horses on her family ranch in rural Arizona. If You Find Me is her first novel.
Debut author Emily Murdoch tells a deeply moving spellbinding story of a young girl’s courage and survival in a darkly observed contemporary America. Carey’s childhood is hard; she lives in the woods with her mother and her younger sister. There’s little comfort and not much to eat. Often her mother disappears for several days on end; when that happens, Carey has been told to be sure to keep herself and her younger sister hidden. But then strangers do come by. Carey’s life is about to change forever. She doesn’t seem to have any choice and she doesn’t know what choice to make.

What happens in the woods, stays in the woods. . . Carey is keeping a terrible secret. If she tells, it could destroy her future. If she doesn't, will she ever be free? For almost as long as she can remember, Carey has lived in a camper van in the heart of the woods with her drug-addicted mother and six-year-old sister, Jenessa. Her mother routinely disappears for weeks at a time, leaving the girls to cope alone. Survival is Carey's only priority - until strangers arrive and everything changes . . . Jenny Downham, author of BEFORE I DIE, says that IF YOU FIND ME is a beautiful book about survival, identity, family, love and so much more.
