Getting Lost is a gentle story. It's a story about a respite, a lull, a pause from the real world, coming in a totally unexpected way. Reed and Isaiah go for a walk in the woods, a short drive from where they live. When night falls, they can't find their way home, and neither of them mind in the slightest.
It's a story about the importance of friendships with people around whom you can be entirely yourself, and a deepening of one such friendship. It's also a story about the just-out-of-reach magic that seems to lurk in places not shaped by humans.
