It’s a hot, hot summer, and in the depths of the Toronto Transit Authority’s Lost and Found, seventeen-year-old Duncan is cataloging lost things and sifting through accumulated junk. And between Jacob, the cranky old man who runs the place, and the endless dusty boxes overflowing with stuff no one will ever claim, Duncan's just about had enough. Then he finds a little leather book. It’s a diary filled with the dark and dirty secrets of a twisted mind, a serial killer stalking his prey in the subway. And Duncan can’t make himself stop reading.

What would you do with a book like that? How far would you go to catch a madman? And what if time was running out?

    " The book I read was Acceleration by Graham McNamee. I really liked this book because it is a mystery and I am a fan of most mystery books. This book is about a kid who works in a train station lost and found. One day he is just sitting around because there is nothing going on at that time, so he spends his free time looking around at what kind of items are in the lost and found. He comes around a brown book or diary and starts reading it. When he is reading it he finds some disturbing stuff like a person writing about killing animals and more... But it only gets worse as he reads deaper into the book. As he reads on he finds out what the whole diary is about, it is about one wierd person that is stocking a girl he calls Red Head and his plan is to kill her. When Duncan(the kid reading it) reads this he wants to try and stop the killer from the red head. I really liked this book and I would recomend this book to pretty much everyone becuase I think anyone would like this book. "

    " I liked this book but what I didnt like was that it was told from first person point of view. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimei | 1/21/2014

    " I loved this book! Lost and Found worker finds a serial killer's diary. He tries to find the guy and wants to save his next victim. Graham Mcnamee is really a fantastic thriller writer! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie McBrair | 1/20/2014

    " I wish I had found more books like this. It's an easy read, with a plot I can kind of relate to, which is what I look for in books. I could see this being a movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy | 1/7/2014

    " Decent action/suspense mystery. I can see the appeal and I'll probably add it to my booktalks list, but it's not my favorite thing I've read (or listened to). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 1/3/2014

    " Suspenseful! Great for kids who like suspense! Very much the same kind of book as Shattering Glass by Gail Giles. It has a cheesy element, but it's still a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 12/26/2013

    " I became deeply immersed, intrigued, and hypnotized by this book. It made me feel excited, scared, sad, happy, and kept me on the edge of my seat right till the very end. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes to read or just likes action, adventure, and mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 12/15/2013

    " This was a really formulaic book, but really engaging. It'll appeal teenagers who like suspense but who may not to be up to reading adult suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronique castillo | 12/6/2013

    " This was a great book to get lost in after six weeks of summer school. It got pretty tense there for a while, which was kind of exciting. I really liked Duncan and his friends. They seemed especially real after I read McNamee's interview at the back of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anneke | 10/31/2013

    " Love it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 7/19/2013

    " A great one to booktalk--the main character gets into trouble, which gives some kids an affinity for him, but then solves a very realistic mystery. You're also never sure what race he is so anyone can identify with him. The villain is truly scary. Could lead to discussions of right and wrong. "

    " I forgot about this book after two days, if that says anything about the quality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clint Heitz | 5/28/2013

    " The plot was suspenseful and creative, but the author definitely asks the reader to ignore some key conflicts in logic. Nevertheless, it kept my interest and the climax of the novel made my heart beat a little bit faster. "

    " An entertaining page-turner, this book was as disturbing as could be, without getting graphic. It provided a fascinating look into a criminal mind, as well as the lengths that guilt will drive us to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise Jukniewicz | 2/10/2013
