Lost. It’s not just a state of being, but an actual place, as Lauren Chase discovers when she drives into the dinky town after being all but consumed by a dust storm. Lauren also quickly realizes that Lost is not a normal place. There are abandoned houses everywhere, and children running rampant through the streets. When Lauren attempts to leave, she finds herself going in circles in the dust storm that seems to continually surround the town. Determined to escape, Lauren goes to the local diner to try and get some answers. She is told that only the Missing Man can send her home once she finds what she has lost. Confused and frustrated, Lauren must figure out how to survive in this town full of misfits and broken and discarded items. How will she make it home if she doesn’t even know what to look for? In her highly imaginative and jarring adult debut, YA star Durst (Vessel, 2012) pushes readers out of their comfort zones and into a slow-brewing, increasingly exciting, and deeply provocative fantasy world. --Patricia Smith
"It's a thriller, a fairy tale nightmare, and a romance all in one, unlike anything else and impossible to predict. I could not stop reading!"
-New York Times bestselling author Laini Taylor on Conjured
"Told in a descriptive style that perfectly captures the changing settings, Durst's novel is a page-turner."
-Booklist on Ice

In the middle of the book and then some I did start to get a little bored because the beginning was so full of content and learning. Then next thing you know we're putzing around Lost for what felt like too long. And then the action/information picked up. I was back at attention. I like all parts of this book, except for the middle. The characters, the setting, the story arc, it took hold of me. Lauren, the main character is believable but not extraordinary. So many books surround an extra-ordinary character - Which works most of the time - so it felt good and unique that Lauren is not. She's likeable. Every step you're wondering where could this be going. I like books I can't easily figure out. It's not thrilling per se and it's not am action packed book by any means, but it's so interesting. Psychologically it's interesting. It's subtle but strange. I think it's everything good books are.
I say, read the blurb. If it sounds interesting to you, get the book. Cheers!
gh the movie. I do realize that it's normal to have a cliff hanger, but 2 years is a long time and there's no mention of the next book coming out soon.
