Advance Praise for SORRY YOU'RE LOST

Sorry You’re Lost is that most rare of books:  it is honest.  Oh, I could go on and on about the amazing voice of Donuts Murphy, and the astonishing cast of characters, and the hilarious plot Donuts embarks upon.  But it is the honesty of the book that stops us short:  Truth #1:  that the world is not fair.  Truth #2: that bad things happen.  And Truth #3: that we must make our way even if Truth #1 and Truth #2 have smacked us in the face.  But this story does not stop with that.  There's Truth #4, and this is the truth that this novel, with humor and sadness and healing and reality and sweetness, wonderfully proclaims:  that life is flabbergasting.”

-Gary D. Schmidt, two-time Newbury Honor-winning author of The Wednesday Wars and Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy.

Sorry You’re Lost spins candy straws into gold, delivering an up-close and original look at a boy coming to terms with loss.  Through funny scenes, sad scenes, and candy schemes, from antics and avoidance to awareness and acceptance, readers take the journey with Denny.”

-Michael Northrop, author of Trapped and Plunked

"Sorry You're Lost is overflowing with emotion, energy and voice.  It's all at once surprisingly funny, yet sad, uncomfortably open and honest, and ultimately endearing.  It will likely be one of the best books you read this year."

-Chris Rylander, author of The Fourth Stall
