Welcome to the Shop Where the Lost Things Go.

If you ever lost a sock, you’ll find it here.
If you ever wondered about favorite toy from childhood… it’s probably sitting on a shelf in the back.
And the headphones that you swore that this time you’d keep safe? You guessed it….

Antoinette has lost her father. Metaphorically. He’s not in the shop, and she’ll never see him again. But when Antsy finds herself lost (literally, this time), she finds that however many doors open for her, leaving the Shop for good might not be as simple as it sounds.

And stepping through those doors exacts a price.

Lost in the Moment and Found tells us that childhood and innocence, once lost, can never be found.

I feel like I say this with every installment in this series, but I think this one is probably my favorite so far! These books have always touched on some pretty tough topics, and this one is no different. I highly recommend reading the author’s note at the beginning of the book so you know what you’re getting into with this one.

That said, I loved Antsy and her story despite the fact that it’s a pretty sad story. In fact, I had tears in my eyes for a good chunk of this book. I think a lot of people will be able to relate to Antsy and the loss of her childhood and innocence. Even when Antsy thinks she’s found a place in the world where she’s safe, she finds that she’s not quite there yet.

I love that we learned a little bit more about the Doors, and I found this particular world to be really interesting. I also enjoyed the few little cameos that we got and the ties to other books in the series, although this one could potentially be read as a standalone or as an entry point for the series.

I love this entire series and am so grateful to Tor that I’ve been able to read a good majority of them early to review!
