Book Blurb:
Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find where you truly belong...

Most girls would kill to spend months traveling around Europe after college graduation with no responsibility, no parents, and no-limit credit cards. Kelsey Summers is no exception. She's having the time of her life . . . or that's what she keeps telling herself.

It's a lonely business trying to find out who you are, especially when you're afraid you won't like what you discover. No amount of drinking or dancing can chase away Kelsey's loneliness, but maybe Jackson Hunt can. After a few chance meetings, he convinces her to take a journey of adventure instead of alcohol. With each new city and experience, Kelsey's mind becomes a little clearer and her heart a little less hers. Jackson helps her unravel her own dreams and desires. But the more she learns about herself, the more Kelsey realizes how little she knows about Jackson.

Book Review: 4.5 Stars!!
This book had me turning the pages one right after another. The story flowed so smoothly that I read the whole book in one sitting. This is the first book that I have read like that, both because of time and because it was just pretty darn good.
I really like learning about just picking up and traveling. Something I have always want to do, but have a family now, so that ship has sailed. I felt like I was connected with Kelsey and was seeing and living her travels through her eyes. I learned about Europe, living in hostels and the dangers of both.
Finding it is a book of self-discovery, something that I think most of the population goes through and probably still feels in their lives today.
While reading the book I told my husband that I wish I knew what I was passionate about and what work I would love with a deep connection. I wonder what separates people who know what they want to do from the others of us who just drift, living just to live, smoldering and not burning brightly. Is this something the parents instilled in those, or are people just born knowing? I want to help my child figure out what he burns for instead of feeling like Kelsey and just sort of drifting without purpose.
Cora did a great job with Finding It. Every sentence was brilliantly written, like a melodic symphony. Nothing extra put in for added effect, but hummed with purpose and meaning. Her words flowing down river to an epic waterfall when Kelsey's life comes crashing around her. A beautiful story of a girl's control, taken from her, and her journey to find herself in a most unique way.
