Synopsis of book»

For the first time in my thirteen years, I have a story of my own to tell and I am the one who will tell it.

It is only at The Lavenders, his mother’s unusual bakery, that twelve-year-old Walter Lavender feels at home. There meringues scud through displays like clouds, marzipan dragons breathe actual fire, and the airy angel-food cake can make customers pounds lighter.

But when the magical Book at the heart of the shop vanishes and the landlord threatens closure, it is up to Walter to find the Book and save the shop. Despite—or because of—a communication disorder that renders him speechless, Walter has a special ability to find lost things. Accompanied by Milton, his overweight golden retriever, Walter’s quest will take him around and under New York City, into the subway and soaring over Central Park. Along the way he will discover his voice and learn what it means to truly be found.

What Critics Have Said»

"Keller's style is simple and often beautiful, and she infuses the novel with flashes of subtle humor and mouthwatering descriptions of sugary confections"Kirkus Reviews
