Description

Miles has spent her whole life in the shadow of her cousin Laura. Laura is the golden one--smart, gorgeous, rich, and popular--while Miles considers herself the unwanted one--an unattractive, underachieving social outcast. As far as Miles is concerned, Laura has the perfect life...until Laura commits suicide, leaving Miles lost the wake of the event. Losing Laura shatters Miles and sets her on a dangerous downward spiral. When she hits rock bottom, Miles must make a choice: She can escape from it all, just like Laura did, or she can look for strength in herself and in those she didn't believe cared about her, and try to find a reason to live.


Praise For You Know Where to Find Me

* "What results isn't just a story about overcoming sorrow, but rather one of a girl raging against the world and herself, waiting for someone to help her make sense of it all."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review


* "Cohn once again excels at crafting a multidimensional, in-the-moment teenage world, this time without recourse to her usual witty style. There is a bleakness to her language that superbly suits this sad, somber tale. Her work is heartbreaking...but rings with authenticity...The tragedy of teen suicide has been the subject of countless novels, yet rarely has it been discussed withsucj gritty realism."--Publishers Weekly, starred review



"The story's evolving relationships keep it compelling enough to propel readers through to its dramatic conclusion."--School Library Journal



"Teens will be riveted by Miles--intelligent, cynical, overweight, talented, and wholly authentic--and her harrowing path through grief and addiction."--Booklist
