The outdoor survival aspect of this YA book is the reason I picked it up. This does not have the depth to it that an adult book has but it's geared towards teens so I expected that. It has a good setting and mystery. Some of the teenage drama and interactions will have adults rolling their eyes. The main character has some snarky/funny inner commentary that lightens the mood a little. Overall, I enjoyed it as a light read between more meaty books. I would recommend for teens who enjoy adventure/mystery.

The contents of the book are fascinating and full of dramatic plots. I think the most remarkable thing of the book is the vividness of the characterization, especially for the psychological descriptions. When I read the book, I just feel that I am experiencing the creepy field trip with the protagonists together. The descriptions not only let us get to know each person’s unique personality but also reveal the complicated humanity in front of the difficulties and threats. It will be easy for us to suspect our companies, and also rely on some of them. But this kind of contradictory emotion finally turns to be a tight and deep feeling which ties them closely after they get out of the dilemma.
Besides, proper descriptions of the environment are also bright points. They work perfectly on exaggerating atmosphere and often make me feel intense and curious.
However the motivation of Ms. Brighton makes me feel a little confused. Because I think reincarnation seems a little be out of the fundamental key and is unrealistic as the intention. But I can accept it as the mental problems of Ms. Brighton.
Overall, it’s a novel story which worth to be read. Thanks so much for giving me the chance to enjoy it!

One Was Lost is a fast-paced thriller perfect for fans of the classic thrillers of the 90s. While on a class camping trip a group of high school students are stranded, drugged, and fighting to survive a mysterious enemy. As the strange events continue, it soon becomes clear that currents events are being staged to re-create events from the past. Recommended for anyone that enjoys a classic tale of survival.
