I Have Lost My Way Gayle Forman
(Simon & Schuster, £7.99) HYBRID Nick Hornby’s A Long Way Down meets Hannah Montana. IN A NUTSHELL On one day, three strangers find each other, just at the moment they feel the most adrift. There’s pop singer Freya, who’s lost her voice, and Harun, who wants to come out to his Muslim parents, while Nathaniel is newly arrived in New York, with just a backpack to his name.
FIRST LINE “I Have Lost My Way. Freya stares at the words she’s typed into her phone.”
READ IT In New York, where it’s set. Or, y’know, in a park surrounded by pigeons. Same thing.
