    Well friends, I think this book just about broke me. Jessi Kirby never fails to deliver on emotive stories about grief, growing up and love. The Other Side of Lost was another wonderful and heartwrenching story from her that absolutely moved me. At the center of The Other Side of ...

    I received this book as a review copy from the publisher. "I still don't know what the other side of lost looks like. And right now, it doesn't seem like I'll ever find out." I have come to realize over the years that Jessi Kirby can do no wrong. Every single one of her books are...

    ?The Other Side of Lost? is a beautiful and emotional story about finding yourself, about challenges, regrets and second chances, about friendship and nature and survival and a lot more. And yes, there is a bit of sweet love squeezed in there as well, to make your heart skip a...

    3.5 Stars This book made me nostalgic for the summer I lived in Yosemite and the very few miles that I hiked on the John Muir Trail. Since my time there I've always imagined what it would be like to hike all 211 miles of the John Muir Trail. I loved the descriptions of the hiking and s...

    Initial thoughts: I really don?t know how to feel about this book. On one hand it was such a fast read and unputdownable. But on the other, it was very unrealistic. Full review: The Other Side Of Lost was a quick and engaging read! I?ve read every Jessi Kirby book and I ha...

    4.5 stars! I?ve never imagined myself going on a hike, but after reading this book (even with all of stressful things that happen), I?m feeling inspired to go on even a little one of my own. Also, this was just so well-written and it made me very emotional at certain points! ...

    I absolutely loved this book, and wanted so badly to give it 5 stars, but the ending fell short of where I wanted it to go so I've knocked a star off. Mari's story is a familiar one. A young girl obsessed with her online profile, appearing as one person, but in reality someone tota...

    Diese Rezension enthält Spoiler. Offline ist es nass, wenn?s regnet von Jessi Kirby hat mich ganz unvermittelt getroffen ? und zwar mitten ins Herz. Nicht nur die Autorin, sondern auch das Buch waren mir vollends neu, hatte ich noch nie davon gehört. Die Überraschungspost au...

    Stopped reading as I could see that this one was just not going to work for me. (Aside: I am a huge fan of the author, and will absolutely try her next book.) The Other Side of Lost is about a teen Instagram star, who, after the sudden death of her cousin, decides to take her cousin...

    The first half of this book was phenomenal. I was ready to add it to my favourites shelf and preach about it forevermore. I really enjoyed it and recommend it (especially for people who struggle with social media and/or like nature!) but it missed the mark slightly for me by introducin...

    Jessi Kirby is no stranger to writing heartfelt stories that touch on grief and strength in the face of it, and she does it again so expertly in The Other Side of Lost. Grief, loneliness, the cost of false facades and things you can?t undo are combined with the beauty of nature, the ...

    4,5 Sterne Sehr berührend, ein bisschen mit Weisheiten um sich werfend, aber dafür ist die Liebesgeschichte nicht so schmalzig wie befürchtet. Meinen Kindern könnte das Buch auch gefallen. Mal sehen. Und hier die vollständige Rezension wie immer auf dem Blog https://tintenhai...

    I?m definitely a fan of Jessi Kirby and her words, so I?m always in for a new book and I don?t care what it?s about. I loved Mari so much. It was easy to relate to her obsession with social media and how she struggled with what she was showing. Her inner monologue is uncert...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 2.5* I was so, so certain that I was going to love this book. Survival components, feels, finding oneself, I love all those things! But at the end of the day, some of ...

    I received this book through Goodreads First Reads. I don't have much to say about this one. I thought the author did a good job with the writing and describing the hiking scenes. Overall, it was a nice story even though I felt it was a bit predictable. ...

    The one thing I hate the most is when I am reading a book on my Kindle, I'm at 93% which means there are still some pages left, but the book decides to end there and I am absolutely not ready for it. That's what happened with The Other Side of Lost and I was just expecting more of a re...

    I liked this book. The plot, the setting, the group of people Mari ends up hiking with. But the ending felt rushed and incomplete to me and the romance was underdeveloped, although it wasn't supposed to be a big part of the story, so that's probably why. ...

    Mari had spent so many years curating her life, that she forgot to actually live it. Following her cousin's death, she felt adrift, lost, and she hoped following in Bri's footsteps would lead her back to herself. ? Pro: My emotions! My emotions! There were so many tears during thi...

    If you have a love/hate relationship with social media, if you love hiking, being outside, stories about finding yourself, AND you want to ugly cry at 1am on a weeknight, this book is for you. What a surprise - I really enjoyed it and did not feel like YA at all. Maybe a bit in the flu...

    This was my kind of a book. If I were to place an order, that is exactly what I would get delivered. I don't think it will sweep everyone off their feet, I can totally see how it may seem a bit pretentious and kind of naive. But it touches on many topics I often ponder - connecting t...

    Great summer read! Quite thought provoking in multiple ways, especially if you?re dealing with grief. And a fantastic group of friends that I would love to meet in real life. :) ...

    see this review and others at arctic books! I believe this is my first Jessi Kirby novel, and it was sweet, short, and emotional. This novel follows Mari as she attempts to hike the daunting 211 miles of the John Muir trail. Along the way, she deals with the death of her cousin Bri ...

    RATING: 3.75/5 e-ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Mari Turner?s life is perfect. That is, at least to her thousands of followers who have helped her become an internet starlet. But when she breaks down and confesses she?s been living a lie, it goes v...

    This was really quite lovely. I felt a real connection with the main character, trying to find her way in the world and stay true to herself while distancing herself from online negativity and attempting to make genuine connections with people. The idea of presenting a certain persona ...

    Dieses wundervolle Buch habe ich in einem Rutsch gelesen. Ich konnte es einfach nicht mehr aus der Hand legen! Es ist so eine greifbare, emotionale und vor allem aktuelle Geschichte einer jungen Frau, die versucht zu sich selbst zu finden und ich bin glücklich, dass ich durch die Übe...

    I love my YA novels, but I had never read anything from Kirby till now. I absolutely adored this story, its characters, its utter relevance to our technology-addicted world, & our relationship to it... It was all just what I needed. In October, I took my first "social media break" ...

    This book was okay. I really enjoyed the overall story. Especially the beginning of he book, I felt it had very strong start. However I felt the book didn't need the romance. I'm usually a sucker for a bit of romance but I just wasn't really feeling it. Otherwise I enjoyed this boo...

    Gleich vorab: Ich lese nicht viele Bücher dieser Art, sodass mir der Vergleich fehlt. Aber darum lese ich nicht. Mich hat dieses Buch bewegt. SEHR sogar. Noch bevor ich Seite 50 erreichte, liefen mir die ersten Tränen. Man mag darüber diskutieren, wie "realistisch" es ist so eine ge...
