Book Review: The Lost by Natasha Preston
The Lost by Natasha Preston opens in a small town where teenagers keep disappearing, and everyone assumes they’re just a bunch of runaways. But when another person disappears, Piper and her best friend, who are around the age of 17 and 18, Hazel, know that something more sinister is going on.
Convinced that something is not right in their small town, Piper and Hazel are determined to learn the truth about the “runaways.” The girls begin a search for the missing people and find not only the lost teenagers, but also their captors. Unable to escape, Piper and Hazel find themselves locked in a building in a privately owned forest where no one will come looking for them. Unfortunately, the building where they are trapped is not simply a prison, but the rooms are a series of tests designed to see if they can make it out alive. The book is really good. I recommend reading The Lost if you are interested in drama and suspense. The author, Natasha Preston has a couple different series and these other books are good as well. Like You will be mine is really good, that was the first book that I ever read. If you want to be up on your feet, then I recommend reading this book. Even when you don’t like reading this book, you will want to read more and more of it. The two main characters are Piper and Hazel. They are the best of friends that go everywhere together and do everything together. Their friendship is tested, but tests designed to break them apart, only bring them closer together. One last note, the kids that go missing in the beginning, end up being found but not somewhere; where you would least expect it!
The author Natasha Preston grew up in small villages and towns. She discovered her love for writing when she came across an amateur writing site called “ Wattpad app”. That’s when she had uploaded her first story. She enjoys writing NA romance, thrillers, gritty YA, and the occasional serial killer thriller. The background to her writing the book The Lost was because she liked the idea of young adult villains.
