Reading the first few pages of The Lost Girls by, well, The Lost Girls, was a little eerie. The book is about the adventures of three friends, Jennifer, Holly and Amanda, and their “unconventional detour around the world” but it was a little haunting how parallel their lives were to mine before they became The Lost Girls.
It was as if I had written the book, or at least the first few pages, and had no recollection of it. The Lost Girls worked in same city, the same industry and even with the same clients as I did. They asked the same questions I’ve asked myself a thousand times.
“Is this it? Is this life? Is life working a 9-7, getting married, buying a house with a white picket fence and having 2.5 kids? Is this the norm? Should I follow the norm? Why should I follow the norm?”
These girls took this journey to gain perspective and to find the answers to questions they never even asked. In the beginning pages of their book, I see myself as the younger version of them. I haven’t read past the prologue yet (the NY Times crossword took precedence) but I’m curious to see if my around-the-world adventure will be anything like theirs.
