“Trust me.” Wick Tate’s never heard these words so much in her life. And with all her secrets, who can she really trust? There’s Milo, her new hacker boyfriend, who’s keeping a dark secret of his own. Griff, the ex who’s always had her best interests at heart but who mostly wants to stay out of Wick’s mess. There’s Looking Glass, an organization that can supposedly offer Wick protection…and a future. And then there’s her family. They should be easy to trust, right? Not if you’re Wick. Not when “family” means so many different things, including a criminal father who may not stay locked up for long. Wick is used to relying on herself…and only herself. But she’s going to have to learn to trust someone if she’s going to finally escape her demons...

What I Loved:

Like its predecessors, Trust Me is as readable as crack is addictive and your sympathies always stay with Wick. She does some reprehensible things and acknowledges it, but compared to the people who have used and abused her tech skills, she’s on the lighter side of gray morality. Her inability to hear the words “trust me” and do just that cause all the problems you imagine, but that wariness is also what keeps her alive. The sheer amount of fight left in her is astounding and reminds me why she’s one of my favorite female characters in YA. I just want to wrap her up in my arms and make everything better.

Don’t worry, Wick gets justice for everything she’s been through. The previous books hardly came murder-free, but the body count in Trust Me reaches Game of Thrones levels and more than a few of the dead are people Wick was wronged by in the past. Some of the deaths are deeply horrifying–like, say, a man being shoved into a crawl space while he bleeds out after a major beating–but also deeply therapeutic. As the song goes, they had it comin’ all along…

What Left Me Wanting:

Toward the middle of the book, the twists start kicking in. BAM–the therapist is the boss. BAM–the therapist boss is evil (and I rather dislike this twist because therapists aren’t shadowy people with their own agenda). BAM–there’s an inside agent. Just BAM BAM BAM one after another. With so many new twists coming at you so quickly and the playing field being redrawn accordingly, it’s hard to keep your feet on the ground and fully understand what’s going on.

I wasn’t a fan of the romantic angle in the first book and my opinion of the now-love triangle hasn’t improved. The question of who Wick will keep in her life and who she’ll leave behind is easy to answer long before the ending. Though Milo is her boyfriend now, she doesn’t have many scenes with him and none at all that leave a positive impact and make you think he’ll stick around. (It’s not a spoiler when it’s obvious!)

Honestly, Wick should give them both the finger as she runs off into the sunset with her sister Lily and her adoptive mother Bren. If she never re-learns to trust anyone outside her two-person support network, it’s hard to blame her. She’s been through that much!

Final Verdict:

In my review for Remember Me over a year ago, I said I wanted Wick to have a good-enough ending if she was in too deep to get a happy ending. That’s what I got. The Find Me series will forever boast one of the most troubled, complex female characters in YA and I highly recommend these books, especially if you’re a fan of the Prep School Confidential books by Kara Taylor. They’re the lighthearted, tech-light version of these books and just as intricate, readable, and flat-out binge-able!
Good Points
*intensely readable
*Wick remains a strong, sympathetic character
*everyone who wronged Wick gets what's coming to them
*so many twists your head will spin
