The conspiracy theories, romance, and compelling "What if?" questions of the So Close to You series build to a satisfying end, making Find Me Where the Water Ends the perfect fit for teen fans of light science fiction like The Time Traveler's Wife.
It's Lydia's last chance to stop the Montauk Project . . . or else be lost in time forever. Lydia has been trained into a person she might have once feared: focused, fierce, deadly. Although she never wanted the life of a Montauk Project recruit, the Project has captured someone she loves—someone she'll do anything to save. Then Lydia glimpses a world in which the Montauk Project never existed. The Project has taken so much from Lydia already, but she knows that she will sacrifice everything to make her vision of a world without the Project a reality.

4.5 stars Oh wow. What a wonderful ending. Lydia has become someone she never wanted to be. But she made due and it did end up helping her in the long run. There was so many revelations as to her role with the Project. That was some craziness! Traveling to the future is mind boggling. To go there to stop something that hasn’t even happened yet. Wowzers. Being in that time period made things interesting when trying not to be noticed. To top that off seeing and learning some things from people you don’t ever expected seeing again. It did make Lydia’s choice of what needs to done easier. That itself was a crazy idea. That last time jump had me happy, excited. surprised, anxious, crying sad tears, crying happy tears, and an all around good feeling when I got to the last page.
Find Me Where the Water Ends is that type of book that not only perfectly ties together Lydia's character arc from beginning to end, it's also the type of book that provides important (and occasionally difficult) life lessons on adulthood, and what it means to adjust to what life throws at you. The Lydia of this book has ambitions and life goals that are very different from the Lydia of the first book, but Carter makes it very clear how Lydia has grown and evolved to this point. There is never the sense that Lydia has lost her dreams, more that she has adjusted her expectations as time has progressed - something that is not only fitting given Lydia's involvement with the Montauk Project, but also a thoughtful idea for readers to mull over. I highly recommend this book for fans of the trilogy (obviously), but also for fans who are looking to dip their toe into science fiction. Carter does a fantastic job of delving readers into a science fiction world, without overwhelming them with ideas and facts. Also, on a personal note: I read So Close to You the day it was released, and have read every book in the trilogy the same way. I've loved seeing how Rachel Carter's writing has evolved over time, and it's abundantly clear in Find Me Where the Water Ends that Rachel is definitely someone who will remain a strong voice in the YA and literary world. *Tips hat to Rachel*
