Review; Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
Description from GoodreadsThe highly anticipated new book from the acclaimed author of The Accident Season is a gorgeous, twisty story about things gone missing, things returned from the past, and a group of teenagers, connected in ways they could never have imagined.
One stormy Irish summer night, Olive and her best friend, Rose, begin to lose things. It starts with simple items like hairclips and jewelry, but soon it's clear that Rose has lost something much bigger, something she won't talk about, and Olive thinks her best friend is slipping away.
Then seductive diary pages written by a girl named Laurel begin to appear all over town. And Olive meets three mysterious strangers: Ivy, Hazel, and her twin brother, Rowan, secretly squatting in an abandoned housing estate. The trio are wild and alluring, but they seem lost too--and like Rose, they're holding tight to painful secrets.
When they discover the spellbook, it changes everything. Damp, tattered and ancient, it's full of hand-inked charms to conjure back things that have been lost. And it just might be their chance to find what they each need to set everything back to rights.
Unless it's leading them toward things that were never meant to be found...
My Thoughts on the Book
While it can be a bit confusing getting into Spellbook of the Lost and Found due to the many characters and different perspective, but it gets better when one gets into the book to keep track of them all. The plot and storyline was fascinating and I really liked the writing style of the author. I also liked several of the characters and I felt they were well developed.
Overall it was a fun and engaging book that's worth the read.
