Summary

"Through this pitch-perfect rom-com, Kristina Forest explores the legacy of family and what it means to be young and full of artistic passion. I was utterly charmed from start to finish." --Maurene Goo, author of Somewhere Only We Know

Now That I've Found You is a YA novel about searching for answers, love, and your eccentric grandma in all the wrong places.

Following in the footsteps of her ├╝berfamous grandma, eighteen-year-old Evie Jones is poised to be Hollywood's next big star. That is until a close friend's betrayal leads to her being blacklisted . . .

Fortunately, Evie knows just the thing to save her floundering career: a public appearance with America's most beloved actress--her grandma Gigi, aka the Evelyn Conaway. The only problem? Gigi is a recluse who's been out of the limelight for almost twenty years. Days before Evie plans to present her grandma with an honorary award in front of Hollywood's elite, Gigi does the unthinkable: she disappears.

With time running out and her comeback on the line, Evie reluctantly enlists the help of the last person to see Gigi before she vanished: Milo Williams, a cute musician Evie isn't sure she can trust. As Evie and Milo conduct a wild manhunt across New York City, romance and adventure abound while Evie makes some surprising discoveries about her grandma--and herself.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Forest's charming rom-com thrillingly features Black teens front and center, offering a fun romp that poignantly demonstrates that Black characters can occupy roles outside of trauma narratives and shine as subjects of swoon-worthy romances. Eighteen-year-old Evie is a Hollywood actress on track to reach mega stardom, like her grandmother Gigi. However, when a scandal leads to Evie being blacklisted, she makes a desperate bid to wiggle her way back into Hollywood's good graces by presenting her beloved celebrity grandmother an honorary award. Unfortunately, Gigi goes missing before Evie can execute her scheme. It's now up to Evie to search New York City to find Gigi and hopefully save her career in the process. This quest becomes a meet-cute after Evie seeks the help of the last person to cross paths with Gigi: a cute delivery boy and aspiring musician. With its light air of mystery and burgeoning romance, this novel delivers authentic teens, a riveting plot, and a lush world that grips readers from beginning to end."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Evie Jones is on the way to stardom, having landed a role in a high-profile film, until her best friend releases a video--of Evie drunkenly impersonating the director--that gets Evie fired. Now the 18-year-old is hoping to get back to work by using her connections to her famous grandparents: Hollywood royalty who appeared in the first big romantic movie with black stars but who no longer speak to one another. Evie's been asked to present her grandmother, Evelyn, with a lifetime achievement award, but after Evelyn takes off, Evie turns to 19-year-old Milo, a musician-on-the-rise and a friend to her grandmother, for help tracking her down. The dash to find her before the awards ceremony gives Forest's (I Wanna Be Where You Are) sophomore novel a madcap quality, and hunky, soulful Milo makes a good love interest, but Evie's privileged attitude--she's sure everyone is trying to use her, and she's too wrapped up in herself to notice what's going on with her grandmother--grows tiresome. Press releases and articles about Evie's grandparents and their on-again, off-again relationship stud the first-person narrative. Ages 12--up. Agent: Sara Crowe, Pippin Properties. (Aug.)"
