The story is about Marley, a 14 year old girl who runs away from home to join her boyfriend who she met online. That's an interesting plotline and it could have been good except its way too drawn out and focuses more on the mother's thoughts and feelings than on Marley's. That also could have been good if it were not done is such a tedious manner. Every little thought and doubt is expressed repeatedly to the point you just want to gag.
The book is promoted as revealing all the families deep dark secrets as their ordeal unfolds; however, their secrets are really pretty minor and are typical of most families. Also, Marley's reason for running away is not much of an issue.
I know many teenagers are gullible, but its really hard to be believe someone is that stupid as her thought process unfolds.
I barely got through listening to this one.

What disappointed you about Don't Try to Find Me?
It wasn't a mystery story like I thought it would be. It was rather boring.
Has Don't Try to Find Me turned you off from other books in this genre?
No. I was recommended this book based on my love of Gillian Flynn books. This does not compare at all.
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
The narrators, I think there was more than one, did a fine job.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
It was boring and I was glad when it was over.
