Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Given the news headlines these days, I walk away with some philosophical messages from I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman. No matter how different we are from each other, more unites us than divides us. Emotions are universal as the young people in this book learn. Although the circumstances of each are completely different, they see reflected their own sadness and loneliness in each other. It is that recognition that says to them that no matter how bad things may seem, you are not alone.
