Jessa Whitworth knew she didn't belong in her ex-boyfriend Caleb's room. But she couldn't deny that she was everywhere - in his photos, his neatly folded T-shirts, even the butterfly necklace in his jeans pocket... the one she gave him for safe keeping on that day.
His mother asked her to pack up his things - even though she blames Jesse for his accident. How could she say no? And maybe, just maybe, it will help her work through the guilt she feels about their final moments together.
But as Jessa begins to box up the pieces of Caleb's life, they trigger memories that make Jessa realize their past relationship may not be exactly as she remembered. And she starts to question whether she really knew Caleb at all.
Each fragment of his life reveals a new clue that propels Jessa to search for the truth about Caleb's accident. What really happened on the storm-swept bridge?


Fragments of the Lost took me completely by surprise. I was expecting a thriller, but what I got was something so much more. There wasn't just a thrilling, suspenseful story; there was also characters that I started to care about and a story that went deeper than it initially let on. I'll be recommending this one often.

What initially surprised me was the writing. It flowed so well, and I couldn't stop reading. The whole feel and essence of the story was really captured well with the writing. I loved the structure of the story-telling. The story is told as our main character, Jessa, packs up her ex-boyfriend, Caleb's, room. The story goes between present day and flashbacks as she finds items that are tied to memories of her and Caleb. There wasn't any confusion here, it was clear what was a flashback and what was present memory. This style compared with the writing fit so well.

I really enjoyed getting to know the characters. I didn't expect to care so much for them. I loved how the story had me getting to know the characters little by little in a way that made them seem real. There were real feelings, real worries and parts that completely surprised me. My only complaint is some things about the ending, but that's all I will say to avoid spoilers.

If you're looking for a solid thriller with a unique story and characters that feel more like real people, then I highly recommend picking this one up! I know that I'll be recommending this one when someone is looking for a good thriller. I haven't stopped thinking about it since I finished it, and that's always a great sign of a good book. :)
