You don’t have to be missing to be lost…It’s a hot summer in the city and the nation is gripped by the disappearance of London student Fate Jones.
But 25-year-old Fitz has a different blonde girl on his mind: his beloved girlfriend Saffy is slipping slowly back into the grasp of an eating disorder. Struggling under the weight of her self-doubt and self-hatred, Saffy becomes increasingly lost and Fitz finds himself unable to help. As Saffy’s behaviour grows more dangerous, he does the only thing he can think of – he calls for help and she is taken away.
Petrified at the prospect of another stay in Happy Blossoms, a residential treatment centre, Saffy runs. In London, Fitz realises too late that he is the only one who can help her and sets off in a desperate bid to find her. Meanwhile the media’s obsession with the search for Fate Jones intensifies. Her image is everywhere, her last days suddenly public property. But how much does anyone really know about the girl on the poster? (from HarperCollins)
MY THOUGHTS : Unfortunately, I found this book quite depressing and thought that it lacked a certain depth that, since it is an introspective story, would've been welcome. The book starts out well, with a catchy tone and interesting chapters (that alternate between Fitz and Saffy). But, for me, it quickly became a bit... I don't know... empty? I won't say boring because it's not true, but I just thought that the whole thing led to nowhere. I felt like I was running in circles between both Fitz's and Saffy's utter despair.
Some passages were really moving, especially from Fitz's point of view, but somehow the book didn't have any real effect on me. I really wanted to like it, but it just left me with an almost neutral feeling.
It's the kind of book that I go through without really realizing it, in some kind of aerial way, and that leaves me frustrated and a with feelin of "and then what?"...
SOMEDAY FIND ME unfortunately didn't find ME, but maybe it will find YOU?
