Book Review: Before They Find Us

Before They Find Us
Before They Find Us by Michelle A. Hansen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

Rebecca Hales is a 17 year old with a disturbing past. Through no fault of her own, she is witness to a crime when she was younger and it made things very difficult for her. Because she testified and helped to put a very popular boy away, people now stay away from her and her life has become isolated. To make matters worse, her friend Ryan moved away.

All of a sudden, there are mysterious texts on her phone. At first she tries to ignore them. But soon, her friend Ryan finds himself a suspect in a terrorist-type attack. Ryan tries to hide and Rebecca tries her best to help him. However, it is clear that they cannot keep hiding and both decide to run to Las Vegas where they feel no one will be able to find them. The FBI is on their trail and they do not have much time. They need to find out who is setting them up and do it fast. But what can two kids do against the might of the mighty FBI and determined bad guys?

Ryan and Rebecca tries to find people who can help them but just how much can they trust others? Especially since it is clear that a policeman Rebecca thought was a friend is clearly ratting out on her.

Before They Find Us is an exciting YA suspense thriller that will keep a reader engrossed. There are also exciting twists and turns which make the story much more interesting as it develops. However, there are just some parts that have gone a wee bit over being "believable" but then it is a work of fiction. All in all, a good read.
