Charlotte just finished reading How to be Lost by Amanda Eyre Ward and passed her copy to me. This is Ms. Ward's second book. I am on page 78 and can hardly put the book down. The setting is New Orleans, New York City and Montana. Reviewers are comparing it to Lovely Bones because this novel is also about a family that falls apart due to the loss of a child. In How to be Lost the family members don't know if the youngest child of the family was kidnapped and murdered or kidnapped and alive in some unknown place. Fifteen years later the family is still hurting and tormented by guilt.
