Mister Max

Mister Max: Book of Lost Things
By Cynthia Voigt

(Amazon's summary)
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 they intend 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.

Down Points
If there were any I don't remember them 

My thoughts
An amazing book 12 year old Max puts his acting skills and nondescript (or as the book puts it average) features
to use in interesting ways, by fitting himself with costumes and a personality to match.

I found it interesting that with just a quick change of clothes he could become a University Student, A Dog Catcher, A Police Officer, A Fat Detective, ect ect...
And remember Max is just 12 which makes it even more interesting.

I'm definitely going to buy this book and the sequel when it comes out and I would highly encourage those of you who haven't read it to check it out :D




  1. This is going to sound weird, but I just got an email from YouTube of a YouTube video, and it said I signed up to receive emails from them, but I know I didn't. So the thing is, I think I subscribed or something to a blog, but I thought I unsubscribed myself, and now I can't remember which blog it was. So I'm just wondering if that email had anything to do with that, and if this doesn't apply to you, sorry :(

    1. I don't think it was my blog and I don't have a youtube page, generally when you subscribe to a blog that shouldn't happen, the email probably came from an outside source, just delete them, don't open them because they could be viruses or maybe just spam.

      My little sister Ani also has this problem, and I had a problem like it too, so I understand.

      Hope this helps :)
