Editorial Reviews

Holly Roberts
The novella is very entertaining. There were more twists than I expected, and the characters were memorable. I liked how the story throws immediately into how confusing things are for Fiona. The introduction of James early, also provided the suspense at a good time.
Keary Taylor
Finding Fiona was an emotional roller coaster that will leave readers both satisfied and craving more.

    Extremely Recommended! You NEED to Read!

    Finding Fiona by Emily Ward was a fast paced, exciting, and amazing read. This is one book that I will read again and again just for the simple fact of how AMAZING it was. I can't tell you how many things I liked about it! It is the best book I've read in awhile and it was only a novella.

    First as I said, it was fast paced and I couldn't put it down. I never got bored of it because of how unique the plot was and surprising the twists were.

    Fiona was a strong female character that made me want to read more about her and her relationship with James was simple in its beauty. I liked that romance was just a side note, not the center of the story.

    I loved the bad guys (like I always do) and it was awesome that they weren't bad guys just to be bad guys like they are sometimes. No one is a bad person just for no reason and they weren't murderers for no reason in their mind either.

    This was an epic read and I loved it. Highly recommended to everyone

    I love this book!

    I am not exactly sure how I came across Finding Fiona, but I am so glad I did. I didn't realize how new it was. It's a great novella! Full of action, not overly romantic, the writing is wonderful. I can't seem to find too much more from this author, probably cause she's new or something. I can't wait to read more of her stuff when it comes out!

    This book held my attention the whole weekend. I totally recommend it to young adults looking for something new. It's a novella so it's a little shorter than a regular novel. That's my only complaint. I wish it was longer. I felt like I got done with it too quickly. But I don't know. Maybe that's what the author wanted.

    Great YA Sci-Fi!

    Finding Fiona is a fasted pasted young adult murder mystery with a sci-fi twist. The story opens with Fiona in a hospital after an accident that she can't really remember. Panicking, she has flashes of what happened to her and has the horrible feeling she has lost something, or someone important to her. The story then moves forward a few months when Fiona is living with the woman who found her, Hannah, on that terrible night. She still can not remember anything of her past but it doesn't take long for the pieces to start coming together.
    Before the fire Fiona and her parents were working on a replication device. This machine had the power to completely replicate a person at that exact time in their life....down to their scars and memories. Now that Fiona knows her parents died because of this machine and the people who started the fire are still after her, she must fine out who, before they hurt anyone else she cares about.....only Fiona died in the fire too! The police report found the remains of her parents and their daughter in the fire. Does this mean the replication device actually worked? And if so, is Fiona the replica or the original?
    Using the help of a past boyfriend who she doesn't remember (but would like to), her newly discovered uncle and Hannah, Fiona travels back to the scene of the crime to make sense of this crazy puzzle.
    I Loved (with a capital L) this book. It puts you right in the action, and allows you to figure out the clues right along side Fiona. With just the right twist and turns you won't want to put this book down. I found myself thinking I had figured out what was going to happen and then the author would throw me for a loop again. With emotional loss, bittersweet discoveries and a old romance, this book makes a perfect lazy afternoon read. I really hope to see more by this author!

    more from this reviewer

    Great potential if the story went on a little longer

    Finding Fiona sounds promising – I mean, who doesn’t find human replication fascinating? Not to mention, a big baddie who is willing to kill for this discovery? – and Emily Ann Ward delivers some definitely thrilling moments, but overall I feel that the story still needed a little more oomph to really make it stand out on the shelf. I did not quite buy into how Fiona finds out about her past; the set-up was all too convenient. For example, I don’t know how many teenagers would willingly pick up American Physics on their spare time. The characters had potential, but I wish they had a few more quirks to make them more personable and less perfunctory to the storyline. Fiona and James had a past worth mentioning, but where was all that tension when they have to reconnect and work together? Perhaps I expected too much from this novella, but I think Finding Fiona had great potential to being a stand-out if it turns into something full-length.
