    This story is told completely through the narrator's voice who is a seven year old girl The first few pages I thought were fun but uickly I wondered if I would be able to tolerate that childish voice for the long haul Ultimately I did and if I overlook the rather strange choice of narrators this was a really beautiful sad emotional and jarring story I wouldn't say it is a suspenseful read but it does pull you along at a rapid speed because while you think you know what is going on you are also very aware that something is definitely not right And the end it really sucker punched me The emotional intelligence of the narrator her relationship with her dollhorse and her spot on instincts were incredibly moving When she says she has a little brave left in her it just struck me as so innocent but also so incredibly mature We should all be so lucky to always have just a little brave left in us Many thanks to the publisher and Goodreads for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review

    A Goodreads giveaway winner What a fantastic book Seven year old Dolly is taken on a road trip by her dad to have an adventure After a few days of driving all day gas station junk food and uestionable motels Dolly isn’t sure this is a good adventure She relies on Clemesta her toy horse for conversation and checking her thoughts Dolly is sure they are going the wrong way after a day at Dollywood where she mentions her name and the staff gets excitedThis is a must read for this year Sacks does a phenomenal job of getting into the mind of a seven year old and translating what she sees there to paper This author is destined to go places A story like this stays with you long after you’ve turned the last page the sign of a very thought provoking story

    This was my first Michelle Sacks book and I loved everything about it The narrator is a 7 year old girl named Dolly Rust who is taken by her father on a long and confusing “adventure” one day As her father’s mood swings from one extreme to another Dolly grapples with accepting the reality of the situation that she’s in and all of the unpleasant feelings that accompany it The style of this is reminiscent of Ginny Moon in that the unreliable narrator in the form of a child is taken to a whole new level Sacks executes this feat flawlessly as Dolly describes what’s going on in her head by her conversations with her toy horse Clemesta This has exceptional character development just the right amount of suspense and a surprising ending 5 well deserved stars Many thanks to Netgalley Little Brown and Company and Michelle Sacks for my complimentary e copy ARC in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own

    All the Lost Things from Michelle Sacks was initially for me a borderline book Pluses and minuses that I couldn't make up my mind about But I couldn't stop thinking about it both the story itself and the writing So I read it again It isn't that a second reading was necessary for the enjoyment of the book but rather that it served as a type of rethinking of what was presented to me the reader and what wasn'tI was not sure I could handle an entire novel with the voice of Dolly but between becoming accustomed to it and the slight change in the cutesy aspect the narration was ultimately a positive feature Additionally the sporadic use of words in all caps was than just random words they were largely important words that she would have picked up from adults with some type of understanding but without a full understanding With this in mind those words tell us much than we first thinkThere are plenty of people comparing this to other novels a couple in particular I tend not to do so and particularly in this case because a comparison might either be misleading we all have different takeaways from novels so a comparison will mean different things to different people or give unnecessary hints at the plot So I will compare this novel to what I was expecting it to be and it compares favorably As the situation became evident the novel remained compelling not because of the mystery but because of wondering how it would ultimately play outI would definitely recommend this and just suggest that anyone initially put off by the narrator voice give it time you will be rewardedReviewed from a copy made available through Goodreads First Reads

    All The Lost Things begins with “the best day ever” for Dolly when her dad takes her on a mystery road trip Dolly has her best friend and twin soul sister along with her a plastic horse named Clemesta While Dolly and her father spend the days driving and nights at different hotels Clemesta begins to get concerned and urges Dolly to remember something It becomes harder for Dolly to believe they are a fun road trip when she is asked not to tell anyone her name and the angry bear inside her father starts to come out This is a heartbreaking story There are ominous dark hints throughout but you won’t know just how sad it is until the endI was initially surprised that the story is told in the voice of a seven year old girl but I found that I got used to it and really enjoyed it This won’t be for everyone but it helped me to connect with her character and for the most part it came off as realistic Though this has thriller elements it is an emotional family drama I loved how the author highlighted the love that still exists in a family that is dealing with so many other issues The characters are complex well developed and will work their way into your heart I could not put this downThank you to Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review

    Thank you Little Brown for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review All opinions are my ownI rate this book a 35 out of 5 StarsI loved Sacks last book “YOU WERE MADE FOR THIS” and devoured that book within hours So when I was presented with the opportunity to choose this book as part of my monthly Ambassador package I was so excitedI loved that this book was fully narrated by a 7 year old and her toy horse I was a bit apprehensive at first that I would enjoy it but I actually really did The only real complaint I had was It would have been nice to have a few chapters of the dads POV I wanted to know what his mindset wasI enjoyed the pacing of this book and Dolly was just such a great little character When I got to then end and everything came to light I really had to fight back the tears I am now adding Michelle Sacks to my list of Auto Buy Authors

    253 This book was an interesting somewhat difficult read since it’s told through the point of view of a 7 year old girl At the same time this gives a uniue perspective experience but the CAPS LOCK is distracting Even tho at some point I struggled to deal with the structure I just had to finish to see how this poor Dolly worked her young brain through this situation A really sad ending too
