By Karen Rought | Edited by Brandi Delhagen

We can pretty much guarantee you haven’t read a book quite like Find Me I’m Yours by Hillary Carlip. It’s more than just a story; it’s an experience.

Find Me I'm Yours Cover

Find Me I’m Yours by Hillary Carlip is a “click-lit” novel. It begins with a simple statement: “If you believe in destiny like I do, and you think there’s even a remote possibility we’re meant to be together, then find me I’m yours.”

The story is about Mags, a down-on-her-luck kind of girl who’s been having a spot of trouble lately. With her boyfriend. Her job. Her mom. Her brother. Basically her entire life. But there’s one bright spot on the horizon: Mr. WTF.

On a whim, Mags buys a camcorder from Craigslist and her entire life changes. Mr. WTF offers up a treasure hunt to find him, and Mags can’t give up the possibility of finding the love of her life. That is, if she can solve all the clues before the deadline!

‘Find Me I’m Yours’ book review

Find Me I’m Yours is a truly unique experience. The first thing you’ll notice when you dive into this novel is that Mags’ voice is loud and proud and in your face. She is a product of our generation: she’s quirky, artsy, and knows how to make a couple bucks last for an entire day, even in the middle of L.A. And even though she might employ more abbreviations in her every day speech than whole words, there’s an honesty to her that makes her completely relateable, even if you’re certain you’ll never find yourself moving to California to be a starving artist.

Mags’ journey takes center stage, and although the potential for romance is always at the forefront of her thoughts, Mags finds out a lot about herself along the way. And it’s not all good. But it’s what she does with the truth of her character that makes this adventure all worth it. Love is important, but so is believing in yourself.

The true genius of this book, however, is the fact that it is completely interactive. While you’re reading it on the device of your choosing, you can watch videos from Mr. WTF, visit 33 real and completely original websites, and even have opportunities to take polls, follow Mags on Instagram, and share your own content. With every chapter, the lines between fiction and reality will blur, and you’ll find yourself rooting for Mags harder than ever before.

Find Me I’m Yours is available now. There are a million ways to read this book, so visit the website and poke around. Watch the book trailer and see how far Mr. WTF is willing to go to find his soul mate. And read the book to discover if Mags finds hers.
