"[A] touching and quirky novel...a quick page-turner about bizarre 'supernatural' abilities, missing people, and it handles some real issues facing teenagers and families."-- "The Nerd Daily"
"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."-- "San Francisco Book Review"
"An intriguing premise...This story raises provocative questions about family, friendship, and the value of individual abilities."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Only a few authors have the ability to create characters that seem like real friends by the end of a book. Prepare to meet several in this absorbing and heartwarming coming-of-age story by master storyteller Orson Scott Card."-- "Nicholas Sansbury Smith, New York Times bestselling author of the Hell Divers series"
"The pacing of the multilayered mystery enables a buildup of dread leading to the revelation of how incredibly dark the crime story really is. The story's psychological elements--both traumatic fallout and beautiful interpersonal relationships--are given breathing space in a satisfying denouement...A winning combination of wit, a twisted crime drama, and a fresh take on teens with powers."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Unputdownable, unmissable. Classic Card character depth that goes to the center of the earth, and secrets that slowly unfold until the breathtaking, heart-lurching ending."-- "Mette Ivie Harrison, author of New York Times Notable Book The Bishop's Wife and Vampires in the Temple"
"When you read a few hundred novels a year, you learn to tell from page one who's got the storyteller gene. Or at least the storycrafter skill. Orson Scott Card has both, and here in his latest novel he lets 'em roll...On the surface, it's a young adult coming-of-age mystery with powerful plot compulsion that makes it entertaining reading. Underneath, there's a lot of important moral and character-crisis material that leaves a sense of 'wow' and 'but of course.' Emotionally gratifying whether you're fourteen or forty or seventy-four."-- "New York Journal of Books"
