Lucy Durant was only fourteen-years-old when she lost her older brother. First to his paranoid delusions as he became increasingly obsessed with UFOs and government conspiracies. Then, permanently, when he walked into the desert outside Bishop, California, and never returned. Now on the tenth anniversary of Nolan's mysterious disappearance, Lucy is still struggling with guilt and confusion-her memories from that period are blurry and obscured by time, distance, and alcohol. Now an adult, she's stuck in a holding pattern, hiding out at her father's house, avoiding people, and doing whatever she can to keep herself from thinking about Nolan. But when a series of unsettling events leads Lucy back to Bishop, she is forced to reconcile with her estranged mother and come to terms with the tangled memories of her past to discover what really happened to her brother all those years ago. Told in Lucy and Nolan's alternating voices, Everything We Lost is a psychological mystery exploring family, beliefs, obsessions, the nature of memory, and fear of the unknown-a haunting, compelling story that will resonate with readers long after the last page is turned.

The synopsis got me so excited! Lost siblings, aliens, conspiracy theories. Yes! But the story itself meandered, bogged down by weak writing. I like crisp writing that smacks of rhythm and pulses with details. I want to feel where the characters are and in the absence of feeling the setting, I want to really know the characters. This book did none of that. I read about halfway thinking it would improve, but when the story hadn't budged by 50%, I was done. Boring to the max. Bye.
