Review: Lost in Tokyo by Jenny Lynne
Nineteen - year - old Erin is hoping that her visit to Japan with her best friend, Adam, will be life - changing. Fifteen years ago, Erin's mother mysteriously vanished. The only clue she left behind is a handwritten itinerary for a dream trip to Japan, a rip that Erin doesn't know if her mother ever had the chance to take. Erin has decided to carry out this itinerary, believing that it might help her find her mother.
But her trip won't be going according to plan.
Just hours after Erin and Adam arrive in Tokyo, in a jet - lagged fog, they end up in bed together. While struggling with the tension that now dominates their once innocent friendship, Erin and Adam visit the places on her mother's list. As they explore the wonders of Japan, Erin finds herself haunted by strange "memories" that seem to belong to her mother. Could these memories be real? If so, perhaps her mother can be found.
Lost in Tokyo is a young adult / new adult contemporary romance novel that will appeal to readers. The book gives us a travel guide of wonderful things to see and do while on vacation in Japan ( featuring attractions in Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Nikko, and Kamakura) wrapped in a story of healing, and hope, with an unexpected, but satisfying, ending.
I thought this was a really great book. It is full of twists and turns and surprises. I also found the story to be a bit complicated at times. Did Erin get her miracle...to find out the answer you have to pick up this book and read it. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves contemporary romance and young adult / new adult books.
