What would you do…

…if your best friend were plotting the annihilation of a small, furry neighborhood poodle? Or if your parents up and moved to an Outward Bound-type survival camp in the middle of the desert? How about if your grandmother bought you new bras and underwear — and you actually thought they were a teensy bit, umm, sexy?

Most people would not react well.

Tess Whistle’s junior year of high school is off to a fairly bizarre start. One might even say her life is spiraling out of control. But with her sense of humor firmly intact and her first real boyfriend on her arm, Tess is dealing with the ridiculous twists quite well, thankyouverymuch.

Just wait until her shoes explode.

Lost It is a lot more than losing your virginity. Tess loses Ben Easter who she lost her v-card to. While Tess deals with that, her best friend is losing her sanity due to her parent’s divorce. Tess’s own parents have gone to a survival camp to rediscover/reinvent themselves. She remains in the middle of all these, lost herself trying to find herself and pull her act together without the help of them. Lies, diseases, love, and friendships buildup to something unimaginably difficult to handle for Tess.

Tess’s story uniquely stands out as a lost girl whose trying to find a way to get herself together after paying for her lies, rather stay in scattered pieces. She has her awkward moments throughout the story, while there was quite a few laugh out loud moments during reading this book.
