I first judge a book by its first chapter – does it capture and keep my interest? In this case – a strong: YES! I give this book five stars because it contained all my likes, different universes, chakras, stones, believable characters and magic talismans. Once you read this, it will strike a chord within you that will resonate all the way to your soul. A conductor goes on a search to find the chosen few, each with their own special talents who set out to save ALL the universes! I was captured by her descriptions of the many planets of the many different universes; my favorite was Jandra with flying carpets! One of my favorite lines: “Whatever. And monkeys will fly out my butt” He shook his head and gave an odd little laugh. Maxian stared at the other young man in wonder, “You can conjure monkeys from your body orifices? Truly you must be a wizard of great power!” Best quote summed up the best for all children on the spectrum came from Miss Bryony “Bee” Warrick : “I welcome life. I belong.” Each child gave their all in this quest, especially our Bee who will steal your heart. I am sure many of the readers will know someone like Bee who excels in the world better than we do. Their uniqueness makes us all think how highly intelligent they can be with the right guidance and support. I work along many students on the spectrum for the past three years, it is amazing to see how they process tasks and complete them in their own unique way. Each own special talent they excel at, like Bee. The Lost Chord was a very hard book to put down and stop reading, I had to read it all in one day!! I’ve read many books from this wonderful and talented author, I challenge you to find everything she has written and leap into her words and see why she is so enjoyable to read!
