How To Be Lost by Amanda Eyre Ward
The Winters family in How To Be Lost is a wealthy New York family living behind a happy facade. The father is a successful stockbroker who drinks too much, and the mother is an ex-beauty queen who withdraws from the rest of them. The three girls plan to run away together, when the youngest, 5-year old Ellie, disappears and is never seen again. Caroline becomes the only one of the girls to proceed to runaway, and now at the age of 31 she's a cocktail waitress in New Orleans. A photograph of a Montana woman in People Magazine looks like her missing sister might as an adult, so she sets off in search of Ellie in hopes of putting back what's left of her family. Amanda Eyre Ward's novel has received positive reviews with the Denver Post saying, "How To Be Lost is an affecting, if not brilliant, read, but one that sustains suspense to the very end and brings a tear to the eye.
