Lost and Found

I just finished What Was Lost, a novel by Catherine O'Flynn. It is billed as a book about a young girl who goes missing, and while the first part of the book is indeed about that, the rest of the book is really about what happens to everyone else as they try to carry on after someone simply vanishes into thin air.

It's a mystery, which makes it hard to discuss without giving too much away. So read the book--it is well-written, and includes some thought-provoking observations about consumerism, work ethic, family dynamics, and social class.
