another miracle, by getting all the survivors to safetyWhen We Were Lost, featuring elements of Lost and Lord of the Flies, is a novel of survival, of teenagers thrust into a hostile environment It s

a good job of picking out and supporting some good YA adventures.This is a good book It s a very exciting YA survival story While there are certainly deaths, I thought they were a littlefew and gentle for the situation they were in I get that this is YA, but YA readers can take a littleedge and realism.That being said, the adventure was still an exciting one and I loved most of our characters Our main character is very different his personality isn t your normal YA guy and should appeal to readers who feel just a little on the outside of the school social scene.All in all a good book that

Kevin Wignall kevinwignall REVIEWThejungle, not the website is one of the most dangerous places on earth on second thought, maybe it is the website.Everything wants to kill you Imagine your plane crashing here You and a scattering of others survive Oh, and you re 17, and dislike people in general Tom, our reluctant hero, is a keep to himself kind of guy He avoids others they avoid him But, amid this chaos, Tom slides into the role of leader because he s a natural at it Granted, their is opposition, I m talking to you, Joel, creating unnecessary strife and division among the survivors If you chose the wrong leader, can you safely switch sides As they trek through the deadlylooking for help, tension builds, lines are drawn, hope diminishes, and not everyone survives Tom, Joel and the remaining survivors face themselves they grow and change in unexpected ways Some will do unimaginable things Who remains calm and collected Who runs rampant with stupidity Do they find salvation or death I loved this story for its action, drama, mystery and heart Tom is a thoughtfully written character who develops exponentially Joel is the perfect nemesis I didn t completely hate him, but I wanted to I won t name everyone, but each character had a bit of individuality, and it s good to read an author who doesn t generalize age groups, especially teens I read this in a day because I had to know if they made it out of that jungle The butterfly effect, particularly at the end, is brilliant It s an idea present throughout the story, as we see how different choices can lead to innumerable outcomes That s the hard part just choose and hope for the best, as Tom and Joel did It s amazing how one little thing causes so many waves The survivors choices ultimately lead wherever they are supposed to be, at least in this scenario When We Were Lost is an enthralling, sharp, intelligent read for teens and adults that s a must read I read this fast, a really compelling YA adventure, completely perfect for its target audience and just as perfect for adults like me who are trying very hard not to be Adult that is Seriously this is a fantastic read from Kevin Wignall

trying very hard not to be Adult that is Seriously this is a fantastic read from Kevin Wignall here, utterly gripping from the first page as a plane crashes in theleaving a motley group of teenagers battling the elements, the terrain, the wildlife and often each other in order to make it out alive..Our anchor for this erratic and riveting journey is the quietly deep and observant Tom Calloway, a really engaging protagonist whose tendency towards solitude becomes slowly erroded by the unusual circumstance, creating a growing group dynamic character drama within the wider thriller narrative.The author has a genuinely fine eye for human nature, a clever and intuitive sense of how to immerse the reader into a story and as well as all that there are snakes and storms, beasts and burdens, fire and fury I mean what else do you really need Loved it My youngest child has now nabbed it and he s already talking out loud to the characters within which is probably the biggest clue that this is one to watch..Fun, adventure and classic character study Go get it.Recommended This was a fast read The character development wasn t as thorough as it could have been There was plenty of action, though It was a solid story about survival after a plane crash. 4.75 starsTom and classmates are on their way to a remote location for a school trip when their plan goes down They find themselves in a remote jungle with only a handful of survivors This book grips you from the first page It was so fast paced and I quickly came to love Tom and the other characters, minus Joel I didn t want to put the book down and found myself thinking about it, trying to find ways to sneak in time to read.The only reason I am not counting it as perfect to me is just be 4.75 starsTom and classmates are on their way to

a couple of nerdy kidsand the rest, they just want someone to lead them It was sort of like The Breakfast Club meets the first few episodes of Lost with a South American jungle setting The audio is

in your face I wish I hadbackground to the reasoning of the plane crash HOWEVER, for simplicity sake and for the butterfly effect reasoning behind everything, I let that wash At the end of the day, this survival story surrounding these kids is an easy read and very entertaining I won this ARC copy through a Goodreads Giveaway Thanks to JIMMY Patterson Books Little, Brown and Company Hachette

year olds It seemed to be at a junior high level at best There is plenty of tension whether it is with nature or with personalities There is considerable character growth in the main character Overall, it is entertaining and interesting It drew me in and had me rooting for the students Kevin Wignall also writes thrillers crime fiction for adults and I will definitely give those a try When

friendship, acceptance, forgiveness, and the meaning of life There are snakes, dangerous animals, high temperatures, rough waters, enemies and a bit of romance I really liked the premise of this novel as I haven t read anything like it in a long time The line on the cover that says who becomes a killer threw me off a bit, as I was expecting an additional thriller murder plot line, but that s not what it means at all Overall there was something lacking in the story for me I think it was the characters I found that I didn t get to know them well enough, other than their names, so I wasn t invested in their relationships or even whether they survived really Despite this, it was an entertaining read and there were a few suspenseful moments and times that had me hooked I wanted a bitfrom the endingon the repercussions of certain events, or Tom s relationship with his caregiver I appreciate the research that went into all of the South American jungle facts, and there are some useful survival tips in here that I hope I never have to use Thank you to Hachette Book Group Canada for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review
