Watch the EXCLUSIVE Behind the Scenes Video of the Song Featured in I HAVE LOST MY WAY

SHARE

If you’ve read Gayle Forman’s newest book, I Have Lost My Way, you may remember Freya’s song “Little White Dress,” which she comes back to throughout the book. If you haven’t read it, this isn’t a spoiler, it’s just a really good song (and you can listen to it in the audiobook!). Gayle had the idea to record the song mentioned in the book, and with a little help from none other than another YA queen, Libba Bray, and an amazing thirteen-year-old singer, Sasha Abner, we all made it happen. Watch the behind the scenes video where Gayle discusses the creation of the song, and then listen to the clip below!

 

 

 

 

 

 

About the book:

New from the #1 bestselling author of If I Stay

“A beautifully written love song to every young person who has ever moved through fear and found themselves on the other side.” – Jacqueline Woodson, bestselling author of Brown Girl Dreaming

Around the time that Freya loses her voice while recording her debut album, Harun is making plans to run away from everyone he has ever loved, and Nathaniel is arriving in New York City with a backpack, a desperate plan, and nothing left to lose. When a fateful accident draws these three strangers together, their secrets start to unravel as they begin to understand that the way out of their own loss might just lie in help­ing the others out of theirs.

An emotionally cathartic story of losing love, finding love, and discovering the person you are meant to be, I Have Lost My Way is best­selling author Gayle Forman at her finest.
