Book 1: Lost and Found

 Well, the first book of 2016 is a fact!
And it was one that put a smile on my face, and made me think.

Brooke Davis’ debut: Lost and Found is the story of Millie Bird who travels all across Australia looking for her mum, who left her behind in a department store after the death of her husband.

On her somewhat surrealistic roadtrip, Millie is accompanied by her elderly neighbour Agatha and Karl the typist, each of them struggling with the loss of their loved ones and with life itself.

The story of their journey is told from the perspective of Millie, and of her two elderly companions.
I took this book along from the library, mainly because I fell for the cover, and the brief description on it. I had no idea there was a complete website behind the book (which is where I found this little film too).
If you are looking for a book that will put a (sometimes sad) smile on your face,and will keep you reading, here is one.
What’s the first book you’re reading this year?

  1. This looks really good! I think I am going to get it… Thank you for this!! (At the moment I am trying to finish up with some books I started but somehow but away for some time… For example a collection of early Terry Pratchett stories.) Three cheers for reading!
