A Helpful Guide May 16, 2007
As a high school teacher who had the young man profiled in this book, I found it to be very enlightening into the dangers too many people fail to see, both in education and outside education. Mrs. Crandell, with the help of Cynthia Cutts, bares her soul and reveals intimate details in order to sound the clarion for others. Her personal anecdotes are illuminating, but the more substantive portion of the book is the concrete advice regularly sprinkled through these anecdotes in the form of "I wish I'd known..." information boxes. These, combined with the "Drug Charts & FAQs" at the back of the book, make this a helpful guide to add to a parent's arsenal.

The story is so enthralling because it could so easily happen to any average teenager. This is a must-read for all parents and adults who work with youth. The book is packed with useful information, and the author's writing style makes it a captivating page-turner, easy to read in just a few hours.
Lost & Found May 5, 2007
This book is a must read for all parents. It is well written, compelling to read and very infomative. Don't make the mistake of thinking your children are too young to worry about drug use or that it won't happen to your family. I could completely relate to the author and saw many similarities in our families. This book is full of information on early warning signs, resources, and how to prevent drug abuse with your own children.
Lost & Found Is For Every Parent May 4, 2007
You'll want to read Lost & Found in one sitting because it captures you from the beginning. This book is both heart-breaking and uplifting since Christy shares the story of her son, Ryan, and how they hope his experience will help other teens and parents. It is a sobering look at teen drug use and how most adults are unaware of how many teens are involved. My favorite part of the book is the "I wish I'd Known.." sections that give facts, resources, answers and advice for parents of all teens. I definitely recommend Lost & found to all parents and people who work with teens.
