“Losing Gabriel” is such a great story! It’s been so hit and miss on contemporary, but this was a hit! This book tells the story of three very different characters. Each telling is told alone then they intertwine into one great story! Each character deals with love, loss, endings and then new beginnings. This really is a must read YA novel! The pacing in this book was fabulous. It’s not too fast nor too slow. You get drawn into the story one page at a time and it doesn’t let you go until the last page. Through the story each character grows. I really loved each one in their own way.
“Losing Gabriel” has a great story along with a wonderful ending. Along the journey the author will make you feel each character's turmoil and triumphs!
