We Are Lost and Found

We Are Lost and Found - Helene Dunbar

We Are Lost and Found


A poignant, heartbreaking, and uplifting story in the tradition of The Perks of Being a Wallflower about three friends coming-of-age in the early 1980s as they struggle to forge their own paths in the face of fear of the unknown.

Michael is content to live in the shadow of his best friends, James and Becky. His brother, Connor, has already been kicked out of the house for being gay and laying low seems to be Michael's best option

To pass the time before graduation, Michael hangs out at The Echo where he can dance and forget about the world around him, including the looming threat of AIDS, a disease that everyone is talking about, but no one understands.

Then he meets Gabriel, a boy who actually sees him. A boy who, unlike seemingly everyone else in New York City, is interested in him and not James. And Michael has to decide what he's willing to risk to finally be himself.

"We Are Lost and Found absolutely sparkles... she so perfectly, so evocatively captures the angst, uncertainty, and shaky self-confidence of adolescence that it might make you wince."--Echo Magazine
