Around The World ARC Tours Presents an Early Review of The Lost & Found by Katrina Leno


A charming and imaginative new novel about getting lost before you can be found.


Frannie and Louis met in an online support group when they were both younger. They have never met face-to-face. They don’t even know each other’s real names. All they know is that they both have a mysterious tendency to lose things. Well, not lose them, exactly. Things just seem to…disappear. 


They each receive news in the mail that sets them off on a road trip to Austin, Texas, looking for answers—and each other. Along the way, each one begins to find, as if by magic, important things the other has lost. And by the time they finally meet in person, they realize that the things you lose might be things you weren’t meant to have at all, and that you never know what you might find if you just take a chance.

The Lost & Found is a bighearted novel about connections (missed and found), family (the kind you’re born with and the kind you make for yourself), and unexpected journeys (on the road, and of the heart), from an author who Publishers Weekly called “a fierce new presence.”



This is an amazing story. I laughed, I cried and read this book in two nights because I could not put it down.

This is a story of two teens who meet online and build a friendship. They have one thing in common and that is they lose everything they get. Well it just disappears and they can't seem to find things. Then one day they each receive mail that will send them on a road trip to Texas. 

As they take off on this road trip each one finds things the other has lost. When they finally meet they realize they never knew what they lost until they took a chance on each other.
