Wishlist Wednesday #33

Hosted by Pen to Paper
Lost your way? Your dreams?

Yourself?

Welcome to Lost.

It was supposed to be a small escape. A few hours driving before turning around and heading home. But once you arrive in Lost...well, it's a place you really can't leave. Not until you're Found. Only the Missing Man can send you home. And he took one look at Lauren Chase and disappeared.

So Lauren is now trapped in the town where all lost things go-luggage, keys, dreams, lives-where nothing is permanent, where the locals go feral and where the only people who don't want to kill her are a handsome wild man called the Finder and a knife-wielding six-year-old girl. The only road out of town is engulfed by an impassable dust storm, and escape is impossible....

Until Lauren decides nothing-and no one-is going to keep her here anymore. 
I have no idea what's going on. I don't really know what Lost is or where it is. I don't know if this book is fantasy, dystopian, magical realism, or something else entirely. And I don't care. What I do know is that I want to know what Lost is and what it looks like and how it works. I want to know how Lauren Chase got there, and why the Missing Man (whoever he is) won't send her home. I want to know who the six-year-old girl with the knife is and how to become her friend, because she sounds awesome. And I want to know what kind of crazy book Sarah Beth Durst has written now, because after Vessel, I would follow her anywhere.

What do you think of Lost? And what are you wishing for this Wednesday?
