Lost Days - $1.00
For as long as she can remember, Hayley Wilkes has been oddly fascinated by her uncle Crew, the one everyone else in the family says is a bit “touched.” After her parents’ divorce, fifteen-year-old Hayley moves with her mom and brother into her grandparents’ house, where Uncle Crew lives in a room over the garage. It’s there she learns the source of her uncle’s trauma: when he was just four years old, Crew was lost in the woods of Lake Roosevelt, Washington, for over a year. He’s tormented by those lost days, and so Hayley makes it her mission to find out the truth about what happened to him so many years before. Delving into Crew’s past forges a fragile bond between the girl and her uncle and unexpectedly brings her face-to-face with a legendary creature whose very existence has long been a source of worldwide debate. Filled with quirky characters, Lost Days is an endearing coming-of-age novel about a loveable young girl who discovers that being different isn’t so bad after all.
