The lost girl is a Teen Fantasy Fiction, completely different from my expectation and imagination when I chose this book to read.
Eva is an echo, a creation made by weavers. Her life is not her own. She lives for Amarra, a girl her age whom she is supposed to replace, if she ever dies.
She is not yet prepared even after fifteen years of learning and copying everything about Amarra. But her time has come. Amarra dies in a car accident and now Eva has to leave her guardian and Sean, whom she admires deeply and live with Amarra's family and friends. She has to pretend that SHE is Amarra!
The lost girl is an interesting journey of Eva. Her difficulties and discomfort while treating Amarra's family and friends and Ray, Amarra's boyfriend, like her own. Her emotions towards Sean. And her unexpected battle of survival!
This book is very well written. Language is clean and crisp and the story managed to grip my attention though I'm not very interested in young adult fiction. Some situations are really engaging but I found the end a bit lengthy and I was eager to know the end just by flipping some last pages.
The author has crafted the characters well. I liked the character of Sean. He always managed to generate emotion despite being less expressive. I particularly liked the portion when Eva leaves and Sean comes to see her off and when he calls Eva on her birthday. Overall, for me it was a nice, different and interesting read!
