I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman
Genre: Teen Fiction
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
Author: Gayle Forman
Release Date: March 27, 2018
Just a note that the publisher offered a sneak peek through Netgalley. While I got to read a few chapters, I did not read the entire book. This review is based on this sneak peek.
In just one moment, three young adults are drawn together. Freya is a YouTube sensation who loses her voice while recording her debut album. Harun's situation feels bleak, and he feels running away from his family is the only solution. Nathaniel is in New York City after spending essentially his entire life caring for his father. All three feel they have lost their way. Uniting may be the key to helping them find it.
So far, this book is touching on major issues teens and even adults face. Depression, loneliness, feelings of abandonment, and so much more. I think most teens will find a part of themselves in one of these characters.
I Have Lost My Way seems to be just as touching and emotional as If I Stay. I loved If I Stay, both movie and book, and highly recommend that as well as Gayle Forman's new book. Of all the stories, each is gripping, but it was Harun that I really wanted to see how things turned out. I was rooting for him.
