We watched our only semblance of a home burn and crumble, turning to ash from my parents disgusting habit. We've been in foster care for nine years now and with each battered home we receive a new scar to replace the previous one. Now we are on our last frontier, a shot in the dark, that this home will be our last. The thing is I don't know if I can do it anymore, the constant barrage of false words and broken homes.
My demons call to me, they eat away at the grey matter of my brain and call for oblivion. What I wasn't anticipating was a change in the game, a chance at this whole living thing. I was a lost boy desperately seeking my proverbial Neverland.
That is until I met her.
This tale is one of love and sacrifice.
The Things We Lost had my emotions all over the map. I was happy, sad, mostly angry, and I was in love. Meg also gets you emotionally invested in each of her characters. You want Troy to be happy, you want Wendy to be healthy, for Jessie to be safe and for his foster family to live happily together. I can’t tell you whether or not this all comes true; you have to read if yourself to find out! I rate this book 5 stars!
