Books On Our Radar: The Art of Losing by Lizzy Mason
The Art of Losing by Lizzy Mason should be on your radar. This book is going to deal with some tough subject matter but I feel like it is needed in the YA world. It is hard to say you are looking forward to the author breaking your heart but it’s true isn’t it? Sometimes I just need a book that makes me sob and then has the words to put me back together. I feel like The Art of Losing will do both. If you enjoy a good moral filled story then I hope you add this one to your TBR to be prepared for the February 19th release.

On one terrible night, 17-year-old Harley Langston’s life changes forever. At a party she discovers her younger sister, Audrey, hooking up with her boyfriend, Mike—and she abandons them both in a rage. When Mike drunkenly attempts to drive Audrey home, he crashes and Audrey ends up in a coma. Now Harley is left with guilt, grief, pain and the undeniable truth that her ex-boyfriend (who is relatively unscathed) has a drinking problem. So it’s a surprise that she finds herself reconnecting with Raf, a neighbor and childhood friend who’s recently out of rehab and still wrestling with his own demons. At first Harley doesn’t want to get too close to him. But as Audrey awakens and slowly recovers, Raf starts to show Harley a path forward that she never would have believed possible—one guided by honesty, forgiveness, and redemption.
