'Millie Bird is a seven-year-old girl who always wears red wellington boots to match her red, curly hair. But one day, Millie’s mum leaves her alone beneath the Ginormous Women’s underwear rack in a department store, and doesn’t come back.

Agatha Pantha is an eighty-two-year-old woman who hasn’t left her home since her husband died. Instead, she fills the silence by yelling at passers-by, watching loud static on TV, and maintaining a strict daily schedule. Until the day Agatha spies a little girl across the street.

Karl the Touch Typist is eighty-seven years old and once typed love letters with his fingers on to his wife’s skin. He sits in a nursing home, knowing that somehow he must find a way for life to begin again. In a moment of clarity and joy, he escapes.

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.'

I loved this book.

This book was a truly beautiful read. With the mix of multigenerational characters dealing with life and loss, this book really tugs at the readers heartstrings.

I loved the descriptions in this book and the emotions that each character displayed. The characters were quirky and original and I really loved the way they grew with each other and bonded, it was a wonderful thing to see.

While the individual story lines were at times sad, the connection that Brooke Davis created between the characters meant that when they came together the story had some genuine laugh out loud moments.

Brooke Davis has created a heartwarming yet bittersweet story, with great characters that you will fall in love with. I honestly can't think of another book like this.

Lost & Found by Brooke Davis is a whimsical story that will stay with you long after the final page.
