Little Boy Lost: Book Three
Brian McAllister’s story continues in San Diego, where he finds so much more than he ever expected: acceptance, friends, encouragement, and an entire world of sexual adventure he’d never dared to imagine back in his small Alabama town. He continues to search for one lost boy in a sea of humanity but slowly begins to realize that maybe dreams really don’t come true.
Encouraged by new friends Mike and Emilio, Brian struggles to find work and keep his spirits up while his hope of finding Jamie starts to falter. But when life comes crashing down, he’s desperate to keep his new life. Can Brian do the unthinkable to remain in California when his money runs out? When Brian meets a beaten and bruised boy no one seems willing to help, he knows that walking away is no longer an option.

Damn You JP Barnaby! Okay, now that we have THAT out of the way.
Vanished is the third installment in JP Barnaby’s Little Boy Lost series. The series follows the lives of two throw away children, Brian McAllister (Schrieber) and Jamie Mayfield as they come to terms with themselves and their place in the world. Vanished picks up where Abandoned leaves off. Brian is making his cross-country trek to San Diego in hopes of finding the love of his life, Jamie Mayfield. He quickly discovers that not everything will be easy.
Vanished is about moving on without giving up. It is about finding yourself while looking for another. It is about love and loyalty.
I will be honest. After I had finished Abandoned, I was not sure I could read Vanished. Abandoned broke me. Abandoned made me bawl like a baby. Vanished didn’t, but it wasn’t any less powerful. If you follow JP Barnaby at all, then you may or may not know that Vanished is actually where Brian and Jamie’s stories started. It is a turning point for Brian. It is where he commits 100% to his chosen path. It is where he breaks.
Stay tuned, I will be starting book 4, Discovered in just a few minutes. I can’t not.
