Don’t Miss Gayle Forman’s Newest Release–I Have Lost MY Way–Coming 3/27/18!
I have Lost My Way is a powerful and beautifully written novel. It’s a story of three teenagers who over the course of only one day, mature emotionally, and profoundly affect one another’s lives.
Freya, Haran, and Nathaniel were feeling depressed and lost. Although they were all strangers when they met accidentally in NYC, they became fast friends. Each one of the teens, unfortunately, carried deep psychological scars. Together, however, they found a way to help one another survive, heal and change.
I connected with each character in this book, but Nathaniel broke my heart. From a very young age, Nathaniel became the caretaker for his mentally ill father. When he met Freya and Haran in NYC, Nathaniel was at his breaking point. Freya, a famous teen singer, felt love only through her fans. She agonized over what would happen to her when her fans discovered her horrendous secret. Haran is a gay Muslim and ashamed of his sexuality. He’s in love with a male friend, and afraid to tell his Pakistani parents.
I have Lost My Way is a poignant story, yet heartwarming, and sweetened with a dash of romance. It’s a story about love, loss, friendship, and finding the strength to be who you really are.
Thank you, Penguin Publishing Group-Viking Books and Edelweiss, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!
