Lost and Found by Brooke Davis

This week’s mini book review is courtesy of the First Tuesday Book Club. ‘Lost and lostbrookeFound’ by Brooke Davis has three main characters: a 7 year-old girl with red, curly hair and gumboots, an 82 year-old widow who stays home and yells at passersby, and an 87 year-old man who escapes from a nursing home. An certain event brings them altogether, and their unusual collaboration has some surprising and poignant effects. The Book Club gave this debut novel 7 out of 10, and found the representation of the different age groups and the way grief is dealt with interesting. All the readers liked the ending, although some found it “a bit over the top” in parts. Not everyone liked the book as a whole, but most did. http://ow.ly/i/vDLG9
