This one was alright. Wasn't what I was expecting it to be and I think that is what ruined it for me, was me thinking it was going to go somewhere else. It's not really the books fault.

I bought this solely on the cover art. Go me! ( )

Backstory: I picked this book up at a used bookstore and fell in love with the cover. It was a hardcover though, so it was a little out of my price range for random book purchases. Fast forward maybe a year. I find it at Goodwill for twenty five cents. I do a happy dance, take it home, and immediately start reading it, hoping against hope that for once that the inside will be just as great as the cover.

I really really really loved it. I love the Littles. I love TJ. I love how both Elizabeth and TJ grow. Sure, TJ makes some questionable choices throughout the story, and it really is amazing it all worked out, but still. And I'm not sure why the sections from Elizabeth's point of view were in present tense and first person, while the entire rest of the book was past tense third person. It kind of jolted me out of the story a little bit.

But really, aside from those few things, I loved every minute of it. ( )

really enjoyable! the 'little' in the title is because the character is actually little, as in 6 tall; its like a modern version of The Borrowers." ( )

I had high hopes for this book, because THE BLUE GIRL was one of my favorite reads a few years back and this looked to be more of the same. And on many levels it was: there are plenty of cool characters, lots of the little details that make the Newford setting so vivid, and De Lint's delightful prose. I liked both the main characters, and was interested in seeing them pursue their goals.

And yet, when I was done, I felt as if it didn't add up to the whole experience I was hoping for. I felt as if I'd gone on a pleasant trip, but that I'd ended up right back where I started.

I would recommend this to fans of De Lint, but for those looking to try out his writing for the first time I would suggest starting elsewhere (say, with THE BLUE GIRL).

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670061441, Hardcover)

When fourteen-year-old TJ and her family are forced to move from their farm to the suburbs, she has to give up her beloved horse, Red—but she makes a surprising new friend. Elizabeth is a "Little," a six-inch-high punked-out teen with an attitude, who has run away from home to make her way in the world. TJ and Elizabeth—the Big and the Little—soon become friends, but each quickly finds herself in a truly life-threatening situation, and they are unable to help each other. Little (Grrl) Lost is a delightful combination of realism, magic, humor, and hope, and is sure to win Charles de Lint many new teen and adult fans.
