Review: Before They Find Us by Michelle A. Hansen

Before They Find Us cover I’m going to make you wish you were dead.

In the grand scheme of things, a random text doesn’t seem like that big a deal to Beck. It was probably just a wrong number. But the texts keep coming, and when her best friend is framed for bombing his school, Beck realizes that whoever is texting her isn’t just after her–they’re after Ryan, too.

Now Beck and Ryan are on the run, trying to figure out who set up the bombing and planted all the evidence to point to Ryan. And why would someone even want to? How is this related to the crime Beck witnessed when she was eleven? And why is a dead man sending her Facebook messages?

The search for the truth will take Beck and Ryan from Wyoming to Las Vegas, from seedy motels in bad neighborhoods to the glamour of the Vegas Strip. It will bring them closer than ever, test their friendship to the limits, and force them to finally admit the way they feel about each other. And it will force Beck to finally face the demons that have haunted her for the past six years.

Before They Find Us is a tightly-plotted mystery that will appeal to fans of shows like CSI or Criminal Minds, even though the protagonists are ordinary teens.

Recommended for grades 9 and up – sexual humor, depiction of rape and murder, references to rape, swearing, etc.
