Max's parents are missing. They are actors, and thus unpredictable, but sailing away, leaving Max with only a cryptic note, is unusual even for them. Did theyintend to leave him behind? Have they been kidnapped? 

Until he can figure it out, Max feels it's safer to keep a low profile. Hiding out is no problem for a child of the theater. Max has played many roles, he can be whoever he needs to be to blend in. But finding a job is tricky, no matter what costume he dons.

Ironically, it turns out Max has a talent for finding things. He finds a runaway child, a stray dog, a missing heirloom, a lost love. . . . So is he a finder? A detective? No, it's more. Max finds a way to solve people's problems—he engineers better outcomes for them. He becomes Mister Max, Solutioneer.  
Now if only he could find a solution to his own problems . . .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs a faster beginning but otherwise ended well *A copy was provided by the publisher for review* The Book of Lost Things is a middle grade novel about a kid named Max. His parents had gone mysteriously missing on their trip to India and it's up to Max to earn money for a living while they're gone while solving his parents' possible kidnappings at the same time. This book took a while for me to get into. The beginning didn't really grab at my attention but during the middle, things started to get more exciting. I enjoyed reading about the different cases solved but it was really chance that helped Max solved it. Things were definitely always interesting with Max and he is always thinking about new possibilities. Overall, The Book of Lost Things is a mediocore middle grade book that was enjoyable for me to read about. Its mysteries and the everyday life of Mister Max was very intriguing, indeed.
