Summary from Goodreads:

A young girl discovers an infinite variety of worlds in this standalone tale in the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Wayward Children series from Seanan McGuire, Lost in the Moment and Found.

Welcome to the Shop Where the Lost Things Go.

If you ever lost a sock, you’ll find it here.
If you ever wondered about favorite toy from childhood... it’s probably sitting on a shelf in the back.
And the headphones that you swore that this time you’d keep safe? You guessed it….

Antoinette has lost her father. Metaphorically. He’s not in the shop, and she’ll never see him again. But when Antsy finds herself lost (literally, this time), she finds that however many doors open for her, leaving the Shop for good might not be as simple as it sounds.

And stepping through those doors exacts a price.

Lost in the Moment and Found tells us that childhood and innocence, once lost, can never be found.


Add on Goodreads



My love for this series grows with every new addition.

Seanan McGuire has a wonderful imagination. Every book follows a new character, in a new world, with a new story, but every book relates to the last. The worlds are colorful and well written and the characters are relatable.

There is always a sadness at the end, when the character realizes how much time they've lost in the end, and I always have this feeling that the characters died before they went into the door and that is why they are lost. Something traumatic happened to them and this is their afterlife we are seeing. Maybe one day McGuire will finally answer my screaming question about this, but until then I keep reading.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
