The Lovely and the Lost was a light YA mystery involving trauma recovery a missing persons case and search and rescue dogs in actionBarnes is exceptional at giving her characters depth especially compared to other YA writers There s always a deeper story of trauma affecting the plot which adds a lot of cool dynamics Stuff like that can often make a story feel too heavy but she balances it out with fun characters who are animated and engaging despite their inner demons and there s something deeply compelling about thatI also loved the search and rescue premise of the book especially the dogs It added a bit of fun to an otherwise dramatic story I don t believe there are any seuels planned but I liked it enough to continue the series if there was oneLament I waited impatiently for like five months to get ahold of a copy of this book from my library letting it take up precious space in my holds lineup only to give it half assed attention because you know life Even so I absorbed most of it and it s a decent read But I wasn t as engrossed as I was with her Naturals series and I don t think it was all because of my distractionsThere s an overall mystery to this story but the focus is on the close relationships between characters and the personal issues they re working through I would have preferred a stronger focus on the mystery itself Something to get the characters active and mentally engaged with it I was enjoying the story well enough but I never felt drawn to it to see what would happen next That lack of suspense affected my rating a bit The Naturals was so phenomenal it may have ruined me for mystery YA foreverRecommendations this is a great read if you like highly character driven YA fiction The search and rescue dogs made the story fun and Barnes great writing always delivers a solidly composed story great mysteries However if you re new to this author I d say go straight for her Naturals series and come back to this one later Via The Obsessive Bookseller at wwwNikiHawkescomOther books you might like
