A classic middle-grade novel about a little free library guarded by a cat and a boy who takes on the mystery it keeps by New York Times–bestselling authors Rebecca Stead and Wendy Mass.

When a mysterious little free library (guarded by a large orange cat) appears overnight, eleven-year-old Evan plucks two books from its shelves, never suspecting that his life is about to change. Evan and his best friend Rafe discover a link between one of the books and a long-ago event. The two boys start asking questions whose answers will transform not only their own futures, but the town itself.

Told in turn by a ghost librarian named Al, an aging (but beautiful) cat named Mortimer, and Evan himself, The Lost Library is a timeless story from award-winning authors Rebecca Stead and Wendy Mass. It’s about owning your truth, choosing the life you want, and the power of a good book (and, of course, the librarian who gave it to you).

Rebecca Stead is the New York Times–bestselling author of When You Reach Me, Liar & Spy, First Light, Goodbye Stranger, and The List of Things That Will Not Change. Her books have been awarded the Newbery Medal, the Boston Globe/Horn Book Award for Fiction, and the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize. Rebecca lives in New York City, where she is always on the lookout for her next story idea.

Wendy Mass is the New York Times–bestselling author of the Willow Falls and Candymakers series and thirty more novels. Her first was the Schneider Family Book Award winner A Mango-Shaped Space and her latest is Lo and Behold.. She and her family live in New Jersey.

Together Rebecca and Wendy wrote Bob, which took them seven years but they loved every minute of it.
