Okay, okay, I give you a little more on why you should read this book. But really, the above statement should be all you need.

Gayle Forman has been an auto-buy author of mine since I read If I Stay when it was first released. Her writing paired with diverse characters hooked me, and she has continued to keep it that way since. I snatched up I Have Lost my Way the moment it was released and I couldn't wait to dive into it. 

I usually love to savour books. I'm not one that usually finishes a book in one day because I actually like to give myself time to enjoy the reading experience. However, that was impossible for this book. I couldn't put it down even if my life depended on it! I devoured it, happily, without guilt, in one sitting. I got completely immersed in the lives of Freya, Harun and Nathaniel. Forman's ability to craft such in-depth characters is really a magical thing. She can take you from wherever you are in the world, wherever you a reading, and place you right into the lives of the characters and their world. Her story telling is masterful. Giving your heart a tug on one page, while making you chuckle through your tears on another. She is a fine artist in this literary world.

I Have Lost My Way is the story of 3 teenagers that are lost. Their lives are at a stand still and their options barely visible. A series of events brings these 3 characters into each other's lives. The span of their time together is only 1 day; but Forman has taught us that a lot can happen in one day. 

I adored every single second of this novel. It just proved to me even further why I love Gayle Forman. Another win for the books...see what I did there....

 “They may be complete strangers, with different lives and different problems, but there in that examination room they are measuring sadness the same way. They are measuring it in loss.”
