Everything We Lost

My thanks to @williammorrowbooks for this free copy for review. This title released 8/22. 📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖 Interestingly, I recently came across an article that said that Myrtle Beach (where our beach house is, and this picture was taken) is one of the top spots for UFO sightings! I decided it was a sign that I should read this book, even though I have absolutely no belief in such things. While I enjoyed the part of the story where Lucy is looking for evidence of what happened to her brother, the spaceship stuff was just beyond my interest. There was quite a lot going on in this story, but suspending my feelings about UFO's kind of took away from my enjoyment of the subplots. I also think this was a bit too long, for me it kind of dragged in places. ⭐️⭐️💫/5 While this was not really for me, if this world (or out of this world) is of interest to you, definitely give it a try. 📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖📖 Lucy Durant was only fourteen-years-old when she lost her older brother. First to his paranoid delusions as he became increasingly obsessed with UFOs and government conspiracies. Then, permanently, when he walked into the desert outside Bishop, California, and never returned. Now on the tenth anniversary of Nolan's mysterious disappearance, Lucy is still struggling with guilt and confusion--her memories from that period are blurry and obscured by time, distance, and alcohol. Now an adult, she's stuck in a holding pattern, hiding out at her father's house, avoiding people, and doing whatever she can to keep herself from thinking about Nolan. But when a series of unsettling events leads Lucy back to Bishop, she is forced to reconcile with her estranged mother and come to terms with the tangled memories of her past to discover what really happened to her brother all those years ago. Told in Lucy and Nolan's alternating voices, Everything We Lost is a psychological mystery exploring family, beliefs, obsessions, the nature of memory, and fear of the unknown--a haunting, compelling story that will resonate with readers long after the last page is turned. #everythingwelost #valeriegeary #williammorrow #bookblogger #bookreview #ondbookshelf
