Callum has a family secret. Yasmine wants to know it. Juliette thinks nobody knows hers. All Ruby wants is to reinvent herself. They are brought together by circumstance, torn apart by misunderstanding. As new relationships are forged and confidences are broken, each person’s version of events is colored by their background, beliefs, and prejudices. And so the ingredients are in place for a year shaped by lust, betrayal, and violence. Sometimes growing up is seeing someone else’s side of the story.

Lost in Static was a clever and just a little bit different take on a multiple viewpoint drama as we follow a group of friends heading towards a major event.

Ruby, Callum, Juliette and Yasmine are our main protagonists and as the story unfolds it is highly intriguing to see their different interpretations of the same event. Moving through university, heading towards something terrible and you can just feel the tension building all the way.

I loved the flavour of this one – the author has a beautiful turn of phrase that just immerses you into the tale, it is a realistic and compelling snapshot of university life – often the very first sense of freedom you get as you grow into the adult you become. Lost in Static is a multi-layered and fascinating character study which works very well.

Overall a great read. I was in it all the way and read it in two sittings over one day – one of those novels that draws you back in every time you step away from it. A great debut and definitely recommended.
