FIND ME gets a starred review in Booklist, who says: “Van den Berg’s enveloping novel of a plague and a seeker in an endangered world reveals what it feels like to grow up unwanted and unknown in a civilization hell-bent on self-destruction…a beautifully strange, sad, and provocative inquiry into our failure to love, cherish, and protect.”
Publisher’s Weekly weighs in with: “in Joy, van den Berg has created a voice that never feels false, only lost and dreaming of being found.”
