Publisher's Summary

After her mother’s death, 18-year-old Katie finds herself in a town she never thought she'd see again. Lost in turmoil and sadness, a ray of hope shines brightly when she comes face to face with Julian for the first time in years.

However, he isn’t the same boy she left behind. Reserved and covered in bruises, everyone in River Valley avoids him. Rumors of his activities run rampant.

Despite his cold attitude toward her and her own sadness, Katie can’t keep her thoughts from straying to her childhood friend.

Julian is barely keeping it together. He’s the sole provider for his family after his dad leaves. His dreams to go to college are ruined. Even his relationship with his older brother leaves its mark.

But, Katie’s back in town and is stirring feelings in him he thought were lost forever.

Can they find hope and love in each other, or will the struggle to survive their desperate situations prove too much?

a sweet story

Julian and Katie were friends since childhood!. when Katies parents divorced and she moved with her mom from Idaho to Florida . Katies mom passed away when she was 18 right after her high school graduation. Being depressed all the time, Katies grandma tells her she need to reconnect with her estranged father. This is a story of learning to trust, self discovery, making new friends and reconnecting with old one, especially Julian. I really enjoyed thjs story. I cant wait to see what happens in the next edition. i received a code in exchange for an honest review!

Love, Loss, & Rediscovering Yourself

This was a really great story about love and loss. Eighteen year old Katie just lost her mom to cancer and can’t seem to move on with her life. She moves back to her hometown, River Valley, with her estranged father to try fix their relationship. Julian’s father has abandoned him and his family and his older brother abuses him. Katie and Julian used to be best friends before her parents divorce and they have both changed since then. Both characters have so much growth throughout the story and it was an amazing journey for both of them to learn how to trust, let people in, stand up for themselves, forgiveness, and figuring out what they wanted in life. I loved that Kayla wrote these characters realistically, had both POVs, and ended the story with a HEA.
Katie did a really good job with this narration! She did different voices for each character and her male voices were done well. I felt that she really portrayed all of the emotions of the characters in her performance.

I really liked it.

I really liked this book. The narrator did a good job. I Actually didn't laugh when she was doing the male voices and the grandmas voice. It was clear and easily understood. The story starts sad. Unfortunately life is full of bad things and this book expresses one of them. The death of a parent. I enjoyed the character development and growth. The book flowed and was surprised when it was over. I was very much engrossed. But i'm off to enjoy book 2. Hopefully everyone will give this a chance, because you will be like me. Running for book 2.

Wonderful YA Romance Story

Kayla Tirrell did a wonderful job with this young adult romance. In the story, Katie has just lost her mother at the age of 18. At the encouragement of her grandmother, she makes an extended trip to her father's home in River Valley where she grew up. She is reunited with Julian, who was someone she had a crush on. The two find that they are different people than when they were in high school and both are battling issues. Julian is seen as the "bad boy" in town, leaving him with few friends and no love in his life.

I have enjoyed other Tirrell stories and the way she develops characters. The story is one that leaves you yearning for the characters to get together, find love, and help each other heal. It is a story I think many of younger (and some older) adults will find enjoyable and will relate to. The last line of the story is one of the greatest lines I have ever heard in a romance book.

"Lost" is the first in the River Valley Lost & Found series and it sets up characters for the next books in the series.

All the Things We Lost

Returning to her hometown after the death of her mother, Katie tries to come to grips with her loss. She needs to move on with her life... starting over is never easy, but maybe there’s a second chance with Julian.

A sweet YA book dealing with loss and love. Both the author and narrator did a great job with this story.

Broken but not unlovable

Not a huge fan of YA but this one was really well done, discussing issues that some young people have to go through and the different paths they choose to cope.

The narrator really brought this story to life and made it a joy to listen too
