IN LOVE WITH A LOST BOY is a story about a very young couple who is trying to discover where is their place in the world. Ms. Brighton pens a heartfelt tale of young love that is stressed by indecisions, drama and insecurity. This tale flops back and forth between the characters and does not have your traditional fairy tale ending. In fact the ending just abruptly ends. Genevieve’s character really grows throughout this story. She becomes a young woman who makes some really tough decisions. Jack’s character grows a little throughout the book. IN LOVE WITH A LOST BOY took me back to my early 20’s when I really thought I knew what true love was and how things can change so quickly.
