9780062231208: The Lost & Found

An imaginative and unconventional YA novel that “crackles with wit, humor, and enormous love” (Booklist, starred review).

Frannie and Louis met online when they were both little and have been pen pals ever since. They have never met face-to-face, and they don’t know each other’s real names. All they know is that they both have a mysterious tendency to lose things. Well, not lose them really. Things just seem to mysteriously disappear.

When they each receive surprising news in the mail, they set off on a road trip to Austin, Texas, looking for answers—and each other. Along the way, each one begins to find, as if by magic, important things the other has lost. And by the time they finally meet in person, they realize that the things you lose might be things you weren’t meant to have at all, and that you never know what—or who—you might find if you just take a chance.


“The characters and the road trip alone are a winning combination. The premise is where the magic happens.”
   — Adi Alsaid, author of Let's Get Lost and Never Always Sometimes

“A rich, romantic story about two thoughtful teenagers on a quest for meaning.”
   — Publishers Weekly

“A beautiful exploration of loss. An emotional journey that’s well worth the ride.”
   — School Library Journal

“Crackles with wit, humor, and enormous love. Savvy readers will know the real “lost and found” refers to the fascinating characters in this riveting tale, who, after enough loss, struggle to find themselves and make each other whole.” (Booklist (starred review))
