A powerful display of empathy and friendship from the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of If I Stay. Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from home to find the boy that he loves, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City after a family tragedy leaves him isolated on the outskirts of Washington state. After the three of them collide in Central Park, they slowly reveal the parts of their past that they haven’t been able to confront, and together, they find their way back to who they’re supposed to be. Told over the course of a single day from three different perspectives, Gayle Forman’s newest novel about the power of friendship and being true to who you are is filled with the elegant prose that her fans have come to know and love.
I Have Lost My Way is a remarkable story about three very different people living very different lives. Teens all going through their own problems and how that brings them together as unlikely friends. Gayle Forman is phenomenal at writing the meaningful, deep, and powerful stories for young adults. I have loved everything of hers I have read. She has a way of making you care about her characters and feel close to them. I Have Lost My Way is no different.
You feel for Freya, Harun, and Nathaniel as they struggle lost on their current paths alone. As they collide (literally) you get to see the power friendship can hold and find their way back together. It’s a beautiful and incredible story that you don’t have to be a teen to appreciate. Gayle Forman has created another great read.
