Fragments of the Lost asks, “How well do you know someone?”

How well do you know the people you love? When you’re forced to go through a loved one’s belongings after they’ve passed away, what will you discover? There will be items you recognize, some you have fond memories of, but what about those you don’t recognize? When you peel back the layers of a life, will you like what you see?

In Fragments of the Lost by Megan Miranda, Jessa Whitworth is asked by her ex-boyfriend’s mother to clean out his room after his death. After dating Caleb for so long, Jessa can easily pinpoint where most of the items in his room came from and how they relate to her. But while digging through them, she finds things that just don’t belong. She comes to realize that there was a pre-breakup Caleb and a post-breakup Caleb: one friendly, sweet, and loving, the other cold and cruel.

As Jessa sorts and categorizes, she begins to think that maybe she never knew her boyfriend at all. We discover alongside her that there was a part of Caleb that was hidden from the world.

This thrill ride jumps back and forth in time, as we see the entire relationship of Caleb and Jessa, and learn (at least from her perspective) where things went wrong. Listeners will hang on every word as narrator Erin Spencer relates the strange and twisting tale. This story is a great young adult crossover story and will make you wonder, what if everything you thought you knew about someone was a lie?
