The Lovereading4Kids comment

Full of suspense, this is an edgy fantasy thriller in which a boy has to learn to survive in an alien world when he finds himself reduced to a tiny size and abandoned in the forest. While others forget their past and adapt to their current situation, Rob remains determined to find a way back.

The second part of the Lost trilogy is The Black Room and the concluding part of the Lost trilogy is The Nightmare Game.
