Reviews

&quotTeens will appreciate the surprising and satisfying ending. A great addition to libraries looking to add some standalone titles.&quot-- "School Library Journal"
&quotThe story propels readers and gives them insight into the appeal of lives where decisions are made for you.&quot-- "Booklist"
"What sets it apart from much of the teen literature available is its sensitive subject nature…Lost Boy can be used as tool to understanding other ways of life and the practice of polygamy…Themes of poverty, perseverance, new beginnings and family are all overarching themes present in this novel. Recommended"-- "CM: Canadian Review of Materials"
"Jon's voice gives readers the opportunities to explore what it can be like adjusting to a different way of life."-- "Resource Links"
"Hrdlitschka provides a satisfying conclusion that is hopeful yet realistic and leaves readers with no doubt that Jon still has a lot of work ahead of him. Well written and thoroughly researched, Lost Boy offers a brief but thorough look into religious polygamy and cult dynamics in a realistic and matter-of-fact way."-- "Quill & Quire"
