Reviews

Praise for If You Find This: A Booklist Top Ten 2015 Debut Novel
An Edgar Award Nominee for Best Juvenile Mystery

"This unique book is both a ripping adventure and a piercing portrait of an extraordinary boy. You've never heard a tale told like this... For that, and many other reasons, it demands to be read and discussed."--Adam Gidwitz, New York Times bestselling author of A Tale Dark and Grimm
"Lively, entertaining and satisfying."--Kirkus
* "Reminiscent of Louis Sachar's Holes, this is a rich, captivating tale about family and redemption that redefines the meaning of treasure."--Booklist,

"Smugglers caves, graveyards, ghost houses, seances, and...maps come together to make an intriguing mystery for the group to solve as the characters wrestle with their past selves in hopes of a better future. The story is enhanced with musical and mathematical notations (terms like "forte" and "piano" appear as subscript throughout, modifying actions and dialogue), giving readers a glimpse into Nicholas's impressive brain and adding an unusual layer of interest and beauty to debut author Baker's storytelling."--Publishers Weekly
