I Have Lost My Way

I Have Lost My Wayย byย Gayle Forman


Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from everyone he has ever loved, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City with a backpack, a desperate plan, and nothing left to lose. When a fateful accident draws these three strangers together, their secrets start to unravel as they begin to understand that the way out of their own loss might just lie in helping the others out of theirs.

This was a book filled with amazing characters….Freya meets Nathaniel after falling off a bridge and landing on top of him…Harun is a witness to the fall and so the friendship between the three of them begins… I realize this seems like an unlikely way to meet, but it really worked in this book….

Freya is an emerging singer who has lost her voice….Harun is gay and more than just a little afraid to come out to his parents…. Nathaniel is just a lost boy who will break your heart…. I really was drawn to each of these characters, I found them all so raw and real…. I also found the bond and friendship they formed in such a short time quite realistic… given the circumstances and the fact that they all really needed one another….

The only problem I had with this book was it was very short…. it was almost like a tease… you are given these amazing characters, who are very well-developed, and then that was it…. I just felt as though there was so much to be discussed and so much room for growth, and yet we didnโ€™t get to see that part…. however I do have to say I do like how one of the situations was resolved, it was very sweet…. and on the audiobook you get an additional treat of singing๐Ÿ’•

Strongly recommend to fans of books with some pretty darn amazing characters!

Have a lovely weekend! Berit ๐Ÿ’›
