A brilliant YA contemporary from bestselling author Gayle Forman. 

I Have Lost My Way Summary

I Have Lost My Way Review

I really enjoyed this quick, simple but powerful novel by Gayle Forman. Set across one single day, it’s incredible how much I connected with each character, even when parts of their personalities and complex lives were withheld for much of the story.

Perspective is split between the three main characters but I found their voices completely distinct from one another, so I had no trouble at all following who was narrating at any given time.

Freya, Harun and Nathaniel have such different lives but their peculiar and coincidental meeting leads to a bond that is a joy to read about. It’s emotional, it’s deep and it’s thought-provoking, but I came away from this novel feeling hopeful and satisfied despite how little closure we really get. A brilliant YA contemporary.
