Overview

Mariah Mccoy's family is moving. Again. A new military base to get used to; a new high school for her senior year. Another struggle to make new friends; to fit in. She convinced her parents to let her spend one last summer with friends at their old base, but knowing she'll be moving, already she's withdrawn from them. So when her stepbrother Mike, who's always been her friend and protector, calls begging her help in taking care of his children while his wife is in the hospital, she's glad to rush to his rescue. Mike lives in the small mountain town of Morrell Creek, in a big old house he rented from a distant relative. A small town, where everyone knows everybody else; where people put down roots. The kind of town Mariah wishes she could live in. But small towns also hold secrets--secrets Mariah is determined to find out. But such curiosity can be dangerous, as Mariah discovers when she must run for her life after learning one of those secrets is murder!

Editorial Reviews

Christa Reviewer
This book was great! My class read, and loved it. Some of the less advanced readers had trouble, but overall it was a huge success. Since many of my students have military families, they could sympathize with Mariah. The suspenseful story and wonderful writing definitely made it a hit. I try steering away from books with one main character, as boys don't like 'girl books' and vice versa, but even my most picky readers enjoyed this story. Thanks! I didn't want to put it down. great!
Anonymous Reviewer
Finding Mariah will make you chuckle even as it pulls on your heartstrings. The interaction between Mariah and her niece and nephews is well developed while the boy-girl relationships are definitely G-rated. The book is a quick read (a mere 103 pages) with short, cliff-hanging chapters. Mariah's resourcefulness, as well as her mistakes, make her a heroine most young readers will enjoy. 4 Stars!
Carrie S. Masek
Finding Mariah is a total delight. The mystery is fast paced and compelling, the characters memorable. The best thing about this book is the way Ms. Barton draws the relationships between her characters. Finding Mariah blends romance, suspense, and some serious issues into a completely satisfying quick summer read. I give it my highest recommendation.
