You Know Where To Find Me
Rachel Cohn
Miles has spent almost her entire life in the shadow of her first cousin Laura. Laura is completely overprivileged--smart, gorgeous, and a student at a prep school outside of D.C. Miles is overweight, anti-social, and lives with her mom in the carriage house on her uncle's property. As far as Miles is concerned, Laura has the perfect life--until she commits suicide, leaving her dad Jim and Miles lost in the wake of the event. Miles already feels like she has no future--she was planning to drop out of school--and now she has no one. Her best friend, Jamal, is dating Bex, one of Laura's annoying friends, and Miles's mother jets off to London for the summer, leaving her with her virtual-stranger dad, Buddy. When Miles finds out that her mother isn't planning to return and Jamal tells Miles that he and Bex are planning to move to NYC, Miles hits rock bottom and overdoses on drugs. She almost dies--just like Laura did. But with the help of Jim, Buddy, Jamal, and even Bex, Miles gains the strength to face her situation and accept help. This is a forceful, emotional story about finding love and cobbling together a family.

Profile Picture

Miles always felt second best to her cousin, Laura. Laura's the skinny, pretty one, the popular girl with a doting father and more wealth than she can ask for, while Miles is the failure, overweight and underachieving. The two may not be as close as they were in their childhood, but Miles thought that she knew Laura, at least well enough to predict and prevent her cousin's suicide. Now, with her best friend gone, Miles is left alone, stranded on earth to deal with the consequences of Laura's death.
