Wonderful

The Beautiful Lost was an amazing, emotional and wonderful novel.

The main character, Maia has struggled with depression ever since her mother left her. Maia was really close to her mother and remembered everything she thought her. They also share a love for whales.

She decides to set off on a road trip in search of her mother hoping that might make her feel like her old, happy self again. And her crush, Billy decides to tag along.

Maia and Billy set off on a journey of self discovery. As they go along, they start to discover they have a lot in common. They also start to understand each other a lot better.

The Beautiful Lost explores the issues of depression. Luanne Rice has written a beautiful novel of self discovery and learning to cope with depression.

I really enjoyed reading this novel and joining Maia and Billy on this journey. This was a very heartfelt novel that I recommend everyone should read.
