A perfect gift for a family member....

Twelve-year-old Tillie Green, injured in an automobile accident at age eight, compensates for her limp with her photographer's eye, taking pictures of classmates and family members. She earns a reputation as her middle school's "Lost and Found" by solving mysteries through careful examinations of her pictures. Yet some puzzles prove more challenging than others, and when Jake Hausmann asks for help locating his missing father, the pair find themselves embroi

I absolutely loved this #mglit mystery, a DEBUT novel from #BrigitYoung. 5 book for me!

Here's why:
The characters
Tillie is honest and observant. I loved seeing her grow and come from behind her camera. I love seeing her discover that her classmates aren't as bad as she thought.
Jake is HILARIOUS, kind and funny. Wait, did I sa

3.5 stars! This is a charming little story, and I liked how it focused on both understand one’s self and shifting your perspective on what you really see about yourself and the world.

okay but like why did this make me shed a single tear? kids books are so frickin' sad sometimes :(

3 1/2 stars because the dialogue was kinda cringey at points and I struggled for the majority of the beginning to connect with the main character, but it did get an emotional response from me in a non-emotionally manipulative way, so kudos on that.

read for class!

I loved this middle grade novel exploring guilt, friendship, and family issues! Very complex characters, and interesting dialogue in this one. Highly recommend!

Such a wonderful book! This has a perfect blend of mystery and heart, with interesting, endearing characters. I couldn't put it down!

Middle-grade books are very hit or miss for me. I mean, I'm an adult, so that's probably to be expected, but I've found that while most children's books and most YA hold up perfectly fine, middle-grade often hits a very particular level of "this is how the world works" that really only works below a certain age. But the few books that don't do that tend to be very good, and this is one of them. It was surprisingly deep for a middle-grade novel, without being overwhelmingly negative or intense. W ...more

Thank you to the author and to @kidlitexchange for sharing a review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

This story of family, friendship and a strong girl’s courage is a memorable one. Tillie was severely injured in an auto accident four years ago when her father was driving faster a bit faster on icy roads than he probably should have been. After many surgeries and countless doctor and physical therapist visits, Tillie still walks with a limp and faces almost constant pain. As a result,

Tillie Green's nickname is Lost and Found because she takes a lot of pictures, notices details and can find stuff that you've lost. This time, a boy named Jake has asked her for help finding his dad. She usually only finds stuff, but he is desperate. They start trying to solve this adult mystery and it works out about how you would think.

What made this story interesting to me is Tillie's leg. It's permanently damaged from a car accident that happened 2 years ago when her father was driving and t

I'd give this one a 3.5. I liked the idea behind the book, but was able to solve the mystery pretty quickly. I enjoyed reading this book and found it easy to like the protagonist, twelve-year-old Tillie Green. After she was injured in a car wreck, Tillie has had to endure considerable physical pain and finds it hard to walk as quickly or as smoothly as her classmates. But she's earned a tiny bit of fame through her ability to solve mysteries through the use of her camera. In fact, she's even kno ...more

If you are looking for an empathy building book, then stop right here. Tillie’s life changes dramatically when she is in a car accident with her father. Her grandfather’s gift of a camera gives her a new interest that leads her to find lost items for her classmates. When Jake asks Tillie to help him find his missing dad, Tillie learns that finding honest answers is not always painless and that friendship can lead to changes she had not foreseen.
Thanks so much to author Brigit Young for choosing

This is the first middle grade novel that I have ever read that illustrated the importance off catharsis from the eyes of a young adolensce. Tillie doesn't realize how dramatic real life can be until an actual crisis arrives at her locker, begging for help. I'm not going to say much else to save you from spoilers, but I think this novel does a beautiful job of showing grown up problems through the lens of minors who, above all, want to be kept in the know about what goes on in the world of grown ...more

I loved this story about friendship and acceptance that includes an interesting mystery. The photography angle as a means to solve little mysteries - and eventually the big one - was clever. A more grown up Cam Jansen without the photographic memory.

I would say this is for older middle grade readers (10-14) because I found the solution to the mystery to be a little more mature than I would choose for an 8 or 9 year old. Of course, readers of any age come in a variety of maturity levels, but it

I was lucky enough to receive this ARC and am sure middle graders will zoom right through it. Not only was it a good story that keeps you wondering what is around the corner, but the characters are believable and engaging. The author did a beautiful job of weaving in the MC's injury and her relationship with her father and friendship with Jake. I hope the author is working on her next book because she will definitely get a following when this book comes out. Highly recommended.
Kerri Jones
Tillie is good with a camera, so good that out of the many photos she takes she can use them for detective work to find lost items at school. She takes this to a new level when her new friend Jake, loses his dad! Some detection work leads to some astounding results, but does every picture tell the right story? A surprising look at what is true including the friends you make.

This refreshing novel was a page turner. I got sucked in immediately and had to know how the mystery ended. The lovable characters were well-developed. I recommend this to both young readers and adults.
Samantha Clark
A wonderful book with fantastic characters I just want to hug. This is a friendship story that feels almost accidental, although it's not at all. Brigit Young has created a world and characters that I love.

I read it before my 10 year old son did. He hasn't read it yet, I'll update this review when he finishes it and share his opinions.

I would have loved this book as a girl. (I really enjoyed it as an adult) How could you not want to be a middle school detective with a camera? 📸 There were so heavy topics, but I felt like they were well handled.

Brigit Young is the author of the middle grade books WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS and THE PRETTIEST.

She was raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she got through many a cold winter by reading all the books on her house's shelves. Her first story, written at age six, told the tale of a monster who wanted a human friend. It ended on a cliffhanger. In elementary school, her mom introduced her to Shakespeare
