Lost and Found
“Are you really a thief?”
That’s the question that has haunted fourteen-year-old Ezekiel Blast all his life. But he is not a thief. He just has a talent for finding things. It is not a superpower but a micropower, because what good is finding lost bikes and hair scrunchies, especially when you return them to their owners, and everyone thinks you have stolen them in the first place? However, when tragedy strikes and a little girl goes missing, Ezekiel’s micropower may be seen as a blessing, instead of an unfortunate curse.
I have to say that Lost and Found was an amazing, heartwarming novel, and I was really impressed with Card’s writing. From the well-rounded and fleshed out characters, to the way that the character-driven plot unraveled, I was left speechless. The author has done a fantastic job. However, while my praises for Lost and Found are numerous, there seems to be one minor thing that didn’t seem to stick with me. The pace of the first fifty pages or so was particularly slow. Although this didn’t last long, as I was soon buckled into the rollercoaster that is Lost and Found.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
