Fate has brought them together. But will it also keep them apart?

Having moved to a strange town, sixteen-year-old Joey Gray is feeling a little lost, until she meets a cute, mysterious boy near her new home.

But Tristan Halloway is not what he seems. And there's a very good reason why he's always to be found roaming between the gravestones in the local cemetery...

My Review:

I have completely become a fan of The Lost Boys. Lilian Carmine did a great job with story and the characters. I absolutely loved them all, every single character has it's own story and personality that made me want to keep reading. When sixteen-year-old Joey Gray moves to a new town with her mom, she wasn't expecting to meet a mysterious yet old fashioned boy, Tristan, and that their connection would lead them to an unforgettable adventure. 

When Joey arrives to her new home, she meets Tristan Halloway at the cemetery. At first Tristan is taken back when Joey talks to him, but soon he warms up to her presence and the two become really close. Joey goes back to meet Tristan at the cemetery everyday and soon she starts to feel more for him than just a friendship. On New Year's Eve, Tristan asks Joey to meet him at the cemetery when the unthinkable happens; not only does Joey find out that Tristan is really a ghost, but accidentally she has brings him back to being human again. No one knows how that happened, but now that Tristan's secret has been revealed he'll have to face this new time. 

Both of them start the year at a new school where their real adventure really begins. They start new friendships and that's when they come together with their friends to form a band, The Lost Boys. But magic comes with a price and both Tristan and Joey will have to face it if they don't want to get hurt. Joey will have to find a way to keep Tristan or let him die/disappear all over again.

I have to say that the story itself was very well executed, all the plot twists and turns helped the story by bringing it to a unique level. When I first read the title I wasn't expecting it to be an actual band, I thought it was going to be something else. Needless to say, I was pleased with the idea and it captured what the rest of the book was about. The beginning of the book focused on building up a foundation for the rest of the story that was full of twists and amazing characters. The ending was sweet, I would have liked to see a little bit more, but it all worked out in the end. I would recommend this book to those that are looking for a sweet romantic story with a twist.
