BLOG TOUR - Girl Lost by Nazarea Andrews (Review & Giveaway)

GIRL LOST by Nazarea Andrews
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Publication: May 1st 2014

Northern was supposed to be a fresh start—a place where people didn’t know who I was or how I had spent years in and out of mental institutes. People didn't know about my parents death or the island no one heard of. But when Peter sits next to me in lit class, I can’t stop the memories, and I don’t want to. He looks too much like the boy from the island, and despite my best intentions, coaxes my secrets from me.
He’s gorgeous, irresistible, a little mad, and completely lost—we are a pair of broken cogs in a world neither of us truly fits into. He is somehow gentle and fierce, heartbreaking in his devotion and savage in his defense.
When Belle, his best friend, shows up, pale and lovely and sick, Peter pulls away from me, a startling withdrawal. It’s a relationship that scares and confuses me. She is at times warm and friendly, and other times is violent and unpredictable.
Peter says that he wants me, but refuses to let himself get close. And there are secrets, surrounding both of us, that border on nightmares. As the memories close in, as Belle gets sicker and more violent, I’m torn between what is true and what I believe, and what this magical boy knows about my mysterious past.

This book was fascinating. Andrews has taken a beloved classic and put a fresh and unique spin on it. Peter Pan has always been one of my favourite fairy-tales and so I was excited to see where Andrews would take the story. And I really liked it. I could not put this book down. 
The book is full of mystery and you are left constantly asking yourself if what Gwen experienced on the island actually happened. Very little is revealed throughout the book which made me all the more engaged in the story. I needed to know where the story was gonna go. 
The characters in this book were great. I really liked Gwen. I could really feel for her and her frustration with not knowing if she was crazy or not. And Peter. Andrews got his personality spot on. He is cocky, childish, possessive and a complete jerk most of the times. Basically Peter Pan all grown up. The relationship between these two is raw and a little unstable but I still couldn't help but root for them.
I don't want to say anything about the story-line cause I'm afraid of giving away spoilers. But the one thing that is annoying me? That fricking ending! It just stops! Please tell me there will be another book. I need to know what happens next! You can't just leave it like that!

I really recommend this book. It is a dark and edgy NA spin on a children's classic. A wonderful read.
