Description

“Are you really a thief?”
That’s the question that has haunted fourteen-year-old Ezekiel Blast all his life. But he’s not a thief, he just has a talent for finding things. Not a superpower—a micropower. Because what good is finding lost bicycles and hair scrunchies, especially when you return them to their owners and everyone thinks you must have stolen them in the first place? If only there were some way to use Ezekiel’s micropower for good, to turn a curse into a blessing. His friend Beth thinks there must be, and so does a police detective investigating the disappearance of a little girl. When tragedy strikes, it’s up to Ezekiel to use his talent to find what matters most.
Master storyteller Orson Scott Card delivers a touching and funny, compelling and smart novel about growing up, harnessing your potential, and finding your place in the world, no matter how old you are.

    This is a great book. Mr. Card is an excellent author. I’m 64 and have literally probably read millions of books of all genres. This is one of the best and now one of my favorites.

    Good books are like good friends. When you meet with them, you enjoy the time you spend together. I consider Lost and Found to be a good friend.
  • Average story with writing that lacks realism

    Lost and Found sets up an intriguing story that can be quite a page turner at times. However, it is extremely uneven and is plagued with some chapters that add very little to the main story, while others breeze through it. Card barely spends time exploring Ezekiel and Beth’s friendship, something which turns out to be integral part of the story. Conversations between characters lack authenticity, and Ezekiel sounds overly adult and most certainly not a high schooler. Beth on the other hand, sounds unduly critical resulting in characters that are not exactly likeable. Overall, a narrative that is just about average and writing that lacks realism.

    For decades, though he’s unaware, I’ve been close as brothers to Orson Scott Card. He’s allowed me to go out into deep space. Taught me, in a different way, to love my enemies, & to ruthlessly tell the truth with loving insight. After all these years, this book, “Lost And Found” has taken us as deep into the complexities of human relationships as his ships of space tossed us into the universe. This is the book I’d most wish to be able to write. Ezekiel Blast and Beth have a relationship that is, at the same time, revealing, flippant, and the joy that comes from knowing that another has your back and cares for your heart.
