I Have Lost My Way
Gayle Forman

After reading some heavy stuff as in emotionally draining fiction and some serious self help stuff, I wanted to read something light. Picked up this one from the bookshelf. This is a light story with simple narration but thoroughly engaging. Ok

There are three main characters in the book. Freya, who is a rising singing sensation. She belongs to a migrant family of four. Her Dad is passionate about music. Both he and Freya love singing. But once her Dad goes back to his homeland not to return, Freya rekindles the bond with her sister Sabrina. From here starts their music. Their mother acts as their manager and handles the social media postings etc. By luck they get connected with Haydin who is a gru among celebrities. Hence starts a whirlpool of media management.


Freya loses the bond she had with her sister. All is going well when one day while recording she loses her voice. Her singing that was her tool to connect with people is no more. She is devastated, feels alone and lost.

Harun is a young man who is burried under the burden of a secret that he cannot share with anyone. He is living a life of pretending. Trying to be an ideal son but in doing so he is losing the person that he loves. He feels alone and lost.<br>Nathaniel is feeling lost and alone after the death of his father. When his mother left his father he decided to stay back and take care of him. In this house Nathaniel is the adult while his father is the child.

A fateful accident draws these three strangers together. Their secrets start to unravel and they begin to understand that the way out of their own loss might just be in helping the others out of theirs.
