If you ever lost a sock, you’ll find it here.
If you ever wondered about favorite toy from childhood… it’s probably sitting on a shelf in the back.
And the headphones that you swore that this time you’d keep safe? You guessed it….
Antoinette has lost her father. Metaphorically. He’s not in the shop, and she’ll never see him again. But when Antsy finds herself lost (literally, this time), she finds that however many doors open for her, leaving the Shop for good might not be as simple as it sounds.
The first thing Antoinette Ricci ever lost was her father, but she was so young when it happened that she never really felt like she could be held responsible.
* Thanks to NetGalley and Tordotcom for an eARC of this book. The following review is my honest reflection on the text provided. *
solid, good read:
I’m feeling pretty melancholic after finishing Lost in the Moment and Found. Most of the books in the Wayward Children series have an edge of horror or sadness to them, but Lost in the Moment and Found really drags you down. There are a few glimmers of hope, but it continually keeps you submerged in the depression.
From the first page, Antsy is everything little girls should be: wild and free with no threat of adulthood and no sense of fear or apprehension. But it drastically changes so quickly and then continues to get worse from there.
I don’t usually look to McGuire for uplifting or happy books, but I wasn’t quite prepared to end feeling so sorry for Antsy and her lost childhood. On top of the sadness I feel for Antsy, after reading eight books in the Wayward Children series, I can’t believe there isn’t a next book to reach for. It looks like there should be another two books coming out in the next few years, and I can only hope there are even more to come so I can once again escape into this incredible world.
