Meet The Lost Girls
In June 2006, we - three friends and media professionals, Jennifer Baggett, Holly Corbett and Amanda Pressner - left our jobs, boyfriends, apartments and everything familiar behind in New York City to embark on a year - long search for adventure and inspiration. Journeying across four continents and more than a dozen countries, we shared our experiences with other aspiring vagabonds on our website, LostGirlsWorld.com. In January 2008, we signed on with HarperCollins to turn our tales into a travel memoir, which hit shelves in May 2010. Find out more about our Book, The Lost Girls: Three Friends. Four Continents. One Unconventional Detour Around the World.
