The Lovely and the Lost is a thrilling and adventurous mystery novel by Jennifer Lyne Barnes. This book is about a girl named Kira, her brother Jude, and her best friend Free. Kira is a victim of child abuse and is a forest survivor; she was found by her foster mother, Cady. When her foster grandfather comes to their house and says something about a missing child, her whole family and her friend Free go to Sierra Glades National Park. When they find the little girl, they find out that Ness, their grandfather's housekeeper, was the one who kidnapped the missing child. They follow Ness's trail to find that she abducted Jude and points a gun at them. Cady explains the purpose of Ness's actions and explains what happened to Ness’s son. I love the way the author spins the story from one thing to another. I recommend this book to anyone who loves action, suspense, and a little bit of humor. That is why I rate The Lovely and the Lost a 5/5.
