    1. Fifteen-year-old Raymond Dunne is famous in his high school, but not for the reasons he would like. He is known as a fainter, a sneezer and a bleeder, and is often referred to (and not with particular affection) as “Speed Bump.” Raymond’s only solace is his responsibilities around the school, and especially his job managing the lost and found. Desperate to be noticed, and to increase his importance, he hatches a scheme with popular but troubled senior Jack Alexander, who helps him begin th [...]

    2. Reviewed by JodiG. for TeensReadTooMeet Raymond J. Dunne. Raymond is one of the more popular students at Hargrave High. Unfortunately, he is known for being a sneezer, a fainter, and he is prone to fainting spells. While he may be well-known, Raymond is definitely not one of the cool kids. In addition to his afflictions, Raymond is also dealing with the fact that his mother has moved away and started a new life that he doesn't fit into. His father, who is financially strained, has a new, undergr [...]

    3. I gotta say, I wasn't looking forward to much since we bought it off of the "We don't want these books anymore" shelf at the library. It was not bad but also made it in the "nice" catagorey. Which is just what I expected. The characters are very interesting. I think that it would've been better with more contact with Janice and details on how awkward he is and then also a bit more information about his "fainting buddy" because I feel like there could be more depth. Maybe even have him visit his [...]

    4. You can’t be more uncool than the fainter Raymond Dunne. As a matter of fact, he’s the school’s celebrity nerd that everyone knows to avoid. But when, the star basketball player, Jack Alexander, befriends Raymond, together they are able to teach the school that people are more than just a reputation. John Lekich has delivered a humorous and touching story as Raymond and Jack develop from two contrasting stereotypes into realistic and dynamic characters. The charming nature of their give an [...]

    6. What kind of kid is Raymond J. Dunne? He's a fainter, a bleeder, and a sneezer, the kind of person destined to be uncool. But he is also an optimist, a leader, and a bit of a rebel. Told from the first person point of view, King of the Lost and Found gives the reader a peek into Raymond's quirky and wonderful mind. His voice is strong and interesting, comforting and funny. I can't wait to recommend this to my 7th grade students!

    7. Raymond J. Dunne is short, a sneezer, prone to nosebleeds, a fainter, and about the least cool kid in his high school. Add to this the fact that he's only in Grade Ten and is a bit obsessive and you wonder how he becomes friends and business partners with the coolest transfer student the school has ever had - oh yeah - and learns how to drive and meets a cool older girl and. well you'll have to read it to believe it.

    8. I wanted to like this book, but the truth is I could barely get into it. I stopped 80 pages in and had to put it down when I realized that this book was giving me nothing. It was a slog, the plot kept getting sidelined with details and side-events that I just couldn't bear it any longer. That's what I get for blindly picking a book off of the library shelf. I'm giving it 2 stars because I'm not a total meanie.

    9. This was a pretty enoyable book. The characters of Jack and Raymond and were interesting, and they had real flaws and really developed. However, there was very little setting description and the beginning dragged on and on. Once the book hit a certain spot, it really picked up and I became more interested.

    10. hmmm,, not quite sure to make of this book i do not read lot of teen fiction so i do not have a lot to compare this book to i think if i were in high school right now, i may have found this book more amusing. i would recommend this book to a teenager (8th or 9th grade) who is a tad "left of center" or at least feels like they are.

    11. A terrific book about - I loved Raymond and Jack- their underground social club and blossoming friendship were funny all the time! I am booktalking it to my 10th and 11th graders and they are enjoying it immensely!

    12. The first part of the book has lots of sidetracked stuff that probably could be more organized, but once you get past that the story as well as the characters Raymond and Jack are hilarious and heart-warming. I loved it!

    13. Okay young adult book. Predictable, though in terms of the underdog unpopular guy wanting to be included in the "in" crowd and having a crush on the popular girl. Stretches credulity in parts, for sure.

    14. Charming and humorous. I wonder if it has been optioned? I really enjoyed this but my brain is too mushified to write anything coherent. I'd say age 13 and up.

    15. Hilariously funny. One can identify with the protagonist, amazingly even if the two have nothing in common.

    16. One of the best pieces of kids fiction that I have ever read. Sure to be a classic, King of the Lost and Found by John Lekich is hilarious, moving and a book that truly sticks with you.
