Together, Millie, Agatha and Karl set out to find Millie’s mum. Along the way, they will discover that the young can be wise, that old age is not the same as death, and that breaking the rules once in a while might just be the key to a happy life.

Review:

" Uproarious and affecting… eccentric and sympatheticLost & Found could be ginormous" ( Independent)

" Offbeat and funnypainfully, tenderly observant... [as] three lonely grief-stricken misfits find one another" ( The Times)

" The same feel-good word of mouth as last year’s bestseller, The Rosie Project." ( Sydney Morning Herald)

" Both hilarious and devastating. This is a story of loss and hope with one of the most vivid casts of characters I’ve come across. In particular, it is red wellied, seven-year-old Millie our heart weeps and soars for. A great read with ballsy, brilliant writing. A joy." (Matt Haig, author of The Humans)

" Here is a mercurial talent... completely authentic and real... Seven-year-old Millie doesn't just tug at the heart strings, she rips them right out... A rich and distinctive debut" ( We Love This Book)

"Thought-provoking and eloquent. Millie, especially, is a divinely brilliant little thing… A very special book that will stay in your heart long after reading." ( Heat)

"An unexpectedly uplifting book about death, grief and growing old… Lost & Found is an off-kilter glimpse of Australia that builds to a life-affirming climax." ( Sunday Express)

"Whimsy and wisdom... If you liked Rachel Joyce's The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, you'll like this" ( Metro)

"A Wizard of Oz-esque journey... there's a lot of warmth, wisdom and humour here." ( Daily Mail)

" Heartbreaking and funny and brilliant" ( Herald Sun (Australia))
