Have you ever wanted to read a good mystery book? This might be the right one for you. This book was overall good. Some parts got very interesting and exciting.

The books setting is mostly in Jamee and her sister Darcy's highschool then switches up to the mountains in the end.This setting is important to the story because this is where most of the exciting events happen and where problems are and solved at. The conflict is person vs fate because Darcy and her mom have fate that Jame

Lost and found, sounds like a title of a little kid story doesn’t it? A little girl lost her favorite toy and she went on a journey to find it and obviously she found it. This story has nothing to do with that, this story is actually about a Girl named Darcy who says that she was being watch by someone she didn’t know, a person was leaving her threatening notes, and the worst thing happened when her sister disappeared. I find this story to be nightmarish, engaging, and very realistic. It’s not a ...more

Lost and found over all was a pretty good book. I give 3 stars out of five. Its about a girl named Darcy who lives with her mother Mattie mae and sister Jamee. They live a pretty good life even though about 5 years ago there father left them to be with another women and live in New York. Because he felt like his life was to boring and he was only in his 40's the longest someone has ever lived in his family. So he felt he had to get away and live his life with excitement before he dies. Darcy was ...more

I like the Bluford series, not only because it's somewhat like Black and White, but also because it talks about real life problems. For example, in the book it talks about a family without a father. People in real life also deal with this kind of situation. I like this book because I get to learn something off of it and not only read because it's an obligation.

The book “Lost And Found” feel like a family book to me and as I read the book, it makes me curious about the next chapter of the book.

What I like about the book is the main character of the book is a good sister and a good daughter. She is someone who would alway care about her family. One signpost that I noticed is contrast and contradictions. At first her father leaves their family to live with another woman, but after many years her father came back to their family. I think this

Personal Response-
I just finished reading Lost and Found. This book was powerful in a lot of ways. I didn't want to put the book down. It was like a big mystery while reading this book, and I feel like that is a big reason why it was so good. The authors that write the Bluford series, definitely do a great job keeping the reader interested.

Imagine being followed by the same car repeatedly, but not knowing who it was. Then fining a threatening not on your desk at school. What would you do?

Have you ever read a realistic fiction book that grabbed your attention in every way? Well my story Lost and Found can do that for you.The genre of my book is realistic fiction.In my opinion I LOVED this book because its juicy and is filled with drama,Anne Scharff should make a movie about this book because its about an everyday struggle in high school and about an affect on how two girls Jamie and Darcy's father that aren't in their life's.

In the book, “Lost and Found” Anne Schraff focused deeply on emotions and feelings to get readers more attached and hooked onto the book.

Darcy has to take action to help her sister and family before it’s too late and more bad things happen.

In this case, i would not change my life to be more like the world of the story because them live in an environment full with problems, fighting, disunity, dishonesty, violence, lack of parental care to their children by overwork, among others.

I think that this book ws good. Not only was it good, I myself can relate to it. I can relate to it because I know that if I was to be in the same situation as Darcy, then I would have did whatever it took to find my little sister. I like the way Darcy used her brain towards the ending, because nobody would have thought to go look in the woods, which was where Jamee's favorite place was to go with her dad when she was younger, before he left her and her family. I think the reason Jamee ran away ...more

This whole series of Bluford High novels has always been popular with my students, and I am finally getting around to reading them myself. I quite liked Lost and Found--the first book of the series--primarily for its thematic content, but not particularly for its plot. With a father who walked out on her family five years ago, a grandmother who suffers from dimentia since having a stroke, a mother who works long hours as a nurse in the hospital's emergency room, a younger sister who has started running wi ...more

Then when she finds out someone is stocking her and see's the mysterious threatening note, her sister turns up missing. She really relizes that she is in big trouble and scared for her life. She see's that she has to save her sister and fragile family before its too late. In the beginning of my book Darcy Wills ...more

I thought the book was good. It talks about two teenage girls growing up in a little town. Their father leaves them to live on their own. Darcy was a smart, 16 year old girl who knew what she was doing and knew what she wanted. Her little sister, Jamee, was a 13 year old girl who was trying to act tough and be a punk like the rest of the teenage girls. Thier father left five years ago and now he is back and Darcy thinks she has a stalker. She finds out that it is no stalker and her father is try ...more
