We Weren't Looking to Be Found
Author: Stephanie Kuehn
From award-winning author Stephanie Kuehn comes a breathtaking tale of friendship and healing. Both poignant and timely, We Weren’t Looking to Be Found is a complex, hopeful, and heartbreaking mystery about finding your people in the most unexpected places.
Dani comes from the richest, most famous Black family in Texas and has everything a girl could want. So why does she keep using drugs and resorting to self-destruction?
Camila’s Colombian American family doesn’t have much, but she knows exactly what she wants out of life and works her ass off to get it. So why does she keep failing, and why does she self-harm every time she does?
When Dani and Camila find themselves rooming together at Peach Tree Hills, a treatment facility in beautiful rural Georgia, they initially think they’ll never get along — and they’ll never get better. But then they find a mysterious music box filled with letters from a former resident of PTH, they set out to solve the mystery of who this girl was . . . and who she’s become.
"We Weren't Looking to Be Found tells a story of mental health and girlhood with tenderness, nuance, and above all, raw honesty. Nobody hurts, heals, and surprises like Stephanie Kuehn."—Dahlia Adler, author of Cool for the Summer
