In this new release by bestselling authors Rebecca Stead and Wendy Mass, the main character, Evan, knows that two things are a big deal: books and starting middle school. He’s navigating his final days
of fifth grade—and his anxiety about starting middle school—when a Little Free Library appears overnight in the town square. Evan takes two books and suddenly finds he has a mystery on his hands. He and his best friend, Rafe, set out to solve it.
The Lost Library has it all: town secrets, friendly ghosts, a six-toed cat named Mortimer and the perfect mix of humorous and poignant moments. It’s a love letter to Little Free Libraries, librarians and how books can forge connections. This beautiful middle grade fiction will steal the hearts of children and adults alike.
