"For Those Who Are Lost is riddled with secrets and sins for the sake of survival . . . a poignant and compelling read." -Leah Weiss, bestselling author of If The Creek Don't Rise and All the Little Hopes

Inspired by true events, For Those Who Are Lost begins on the eve of the Nazi invasion of the island of Guernsey, when terrified parents have a choice to make: send their children alone to England, or keep the family together and risk whatever may come to their villages.

Ava and Joseph Simon reluctantly put their 9-year-old son, Henry, and four-year-old daughter, Catherine, in the care of their son's teacher, who will escort them on a boat to mainland England. Just as the ferry is about to leave, the teacher's sister, Lily appears. The two trade places: Helen doesn't want to leave Guernsey, and Lily is desperate for a fresh start.

Lily is the one who accompanies the children to England, and Lily is the one who lets Henry get on a train by himself, deciding in a split second to take Catherine with her and walk the other way. That split-second decision lingers long after the war ends, impacting the rest of their lives.

Perfect for readers of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, For Those Who Are Lost is at once heartbreaking, thought-provoking, and uplifting.

Writing as JULIA THOMAS, she is the author of The English Boys, a Library Journal Debut of the Month novel, and Penhale Wood, which earned starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews and Library Journal. She lives in Oklahoma.
