I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman: Book Tour with Review

I was sent this book from the publisher as part of a blog tour.  My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review. 

"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.

An emotionally cathartic story of losing love, finding love, and discovering the person you are meant to be, I Have Lost My Way is best­selling author Gayle Forman at her finest."

My Rating: 4 Stars
Format: Paperback
Source: Penguin Young Readers
Release Date: March 27, 2018

From this moment this showed up at my door, I knew I was going to love it!  I put the book I was reading down, and dove into this one!  The thing I love about Gayle Forman is that she knows how to pack a punch without having to make a novel 300/400 pages.  This, like some of her other work, is only around 250 pages. 

This tells the story of three different characters.  You get to learn about each of their stories alone, and then how the characters collide.  I will say this started off a little slow for me, and I was a little confused at first.  I did not read what this was about, I just knew I wanted to read it based on enjoying the author.  I had to stop and read the synopsis as I started to read as I was thinking, “what is happening.”  Once I knew a little more about it, I speed through the rest of the story.

I liked learning about all three characters and how each had “Lost their way.”  Each were suffering from a different type of loss. 

I ended up finishing this, and decided I wanted to read it again.  But, this time I wanted to check out the audiobook.  I wanted to see the story come alive, and I am so glad I picked it up again.  Where I really enjoyed the book, I loved the audiobook.

Overall, I still really enjoyed this one.  It is not my favorite read from the author, but still really good.
