Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
“Jennifer, Holly and Amanda have had the adventure of their lives.”
Booklist
“...Jen, Holly and Amanda’s lively accounts make for the ideal armchair journey.”
BookPage
“…the real appeal of the story is the long road they take together, each supporting the others on a soul-searching quest to create a life that matters.”
Franz Wisner
“[P]otentially serious side effects [include] chronic wanderlust; severe allergic reactions to the daily grind; and an incurable desire to toss that Blackberry down a drain….Three cheers to the Lost Girls for showing us, with good humor and graceful prose, the beauty and importance of leading life astray.”
Cathy Alter
“Brave, funny, and deeply moving, THE LOST GIRLS is a real-life fairy tale for anyone who’s ever wanted to chuck it all and see the world with a best friend on each arm.”
David Farley
“For anyone-young or old, female or male-who has ever been tempted to trade in the rat race for the thrill and adventure of long-term global travel. And after reading this book, don’t be surprised if you want to do just that.”
Laura Dave
“The Lost Girls captures the generational struggle so many twentysomethings face as they try to find their way with no clear map. I ... found myself cheering as they discovered more than they could have bargained for.”
Allison Winn Scotch
“A triumphant journey about losing yourself, finding yourself and coming home again. Hitch yourself to their ride: you’ll embark on a transformative journey of your own.”
Peter Greenberg
“...[W]hen it comes to travel (and most other things), a goal is a dream with a deadline, but the Lost Girls have gone one step further….The best travel adventures, the most memorable experiences happen when things don’t go according to plan. That’s why I love this book.”
