TJ is a fourteen-year-old girl who's having some difficulties fitting in at her new school and adjusting to her new life in the city. TJ's a farm girl, but financial difficulties forced her family to sell the farm and move to a suburb where all the houses are identical. TJ, however, discovers that her typical suburban house, however, is home to something not so typical: a family of Littles. Six-inch- high people who live in the walls. She thinks they're mice at first--but then she meets Elizabeth, a girl a couple of years older than TJ who's running away from her family. Elizabeth and TJ have a lot in common-but Elizabeth is small enough to worry about being hunted by TJ's pet cat!


Little (Grrl) Lost is the second of Charles de Lint's books that I've read. I adored The Blue Girl, so this book had a lot to live up to! While I think that in the end, The Blue Girl was a little better, but this book still did not disappoint. It's a wonderfully creative fantasy adventure, quite fast-paced and enjoyable. I preferred Elizabeth's chapters, but both TJ and Elizabeth, as well as the supporting cast of characters, were fantastic! Little (Grrl) Lost is well worth reading, and is so fast-paced and absorbing that it can be easily read in an afternoon.
