    Beautifully written

    Have you ever lost your way? I have. I don't mean those times when I needed to stop and ask for directions when I was trying to find a location although I have certainly been that kind of lost. I am referring to the kind of lost where your life has hit a point and you can't think of what to do next. Those times that you have no idea where you can even go from where you are. I have lost my way. More than once. I am happy to say that each time I have been lost, I have been able to eventually find a new direction to go. I have very little in common with the characters in this book but I was still able to relate to them. I understood Harun's need to please his family and his fear of losing their love if he shows them who he really is. I also understood Freya's fear of losing the one thing that is such an important part of her identity. I understood Nathaniel's need to not be a bother to anyone while living his life under the radar because "it's all good" anyway. I haven't been in the situations that Freya, Harun, and Nathaniel find themselves in during this story but I found each of their characters very easy to like and I really wanted to see them find what they needed in life. I really did enjoy reading this book. This is the first of Gayle Forman's books that I have had the chance to read so I wasn't really sure what to expect when I started. I have to tell you that I loved her writing style. I sat down to read just a chapter of this book because I had things around the house and the next thing I knew it was 200 pages later. I was drawn in by the words and the images that they painted of these characters. I really liked that the story was hopeful. These three characters are all at a low point in their lives and meet through a chance encounter. It turns out that meeting each other is exactly what they needed. I enjoyed watching them come alive and reach out to each other. Their bond developed very quickly but it felt completely authentic. I knew that they would be able to find their way together. I would recommend this book to others. This is a pretty quick read that packs a punch. I wanted to know exactly what brought them to the point where they feel lost and cheered them as they started to connect with each other. I can't wait to read more of this talented author's work in the future. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Viking Books for Young Readers via Bookish First.

    A beautiful beginning

    Thank you to ayle Forman, PENGUIN GROUP, Penguin Young Readers Group, and NetGalley for the advanced reviewer copy of “I Have Lost My Way” in return for an honest review. I love Gayle Forman. I love, love, love Gayle Forman. I have read almost every single one of her books in less than twenty four hours, because I have so deeply loved and been moved by her books (bested brightest favorites If I Stay and For Just One Day). This book is another departure from the topics she was writing earlier, and it’s another new foray of writing type. I feel a little sad this sample was only a sniper, but I am very interested in where it is going so far and quite inclined to pick up the full copy and continue on where this one stopped.

    I fell in love with Gayle Forman's writing in 2009 when I first read If I Stay. The writing is heartbreakingly beautiful and it's easy to forget that the events of the story are taking place in a such a short period of time. I Have Lost My Way addresses a topic that every single person in the world experiences in some way: loss. Loss can be a powerful binding factor for people who need to know that they're not alone. These three characters have experienced different kinds of loss but the connection they share because of their experiences is insanely powerful. This book broke my heart, put it back together, then broke it again. I was invested in Freya, Harun, and Nathaniel from the first word and couldn't stop reading this book until I finished in one sitting. The end of this book was perfect but I selfishly hope that like If I Stay and Just One Day, there will be a follow up so we can check in with these characters again. *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*
