The Department of Lost & Found by Allison Winn Scotch ($1.99) – Natalie Miller, a driven 30-year-old senior aideto a woman senator from New York, is having a rough time: just days after she’s diagnosed with breast cancer, her cheating live-in boyfriend ditches her. She’s feeling gloomy, then, when she begins chemo. (Her hunky and sweet gynecologist, Zach, is a mitigating factor.) Though the election is six weeks away, Natalie is ordered to stay home, where she writes in her diary (excerpts appear throughout) and becomes addicted to The Price Is Right while an ambitious junior aide takes over her job. Natalie battles through rounds of chemo and a mastectomy until, out of the blue, an old love, up-and-coming rocker Jake, comes back to take care of her. He seems intent on making things work, but Natalie’s long-simmering (and seemingly requited) attraction to Zach only intensifies. Meanwhile, Natalie’s journalist friend Sally lands her first big story: an exposé of Natalie’s boss. Her loyalties on the line and her cancer on the wane, Natalie makes some tough choices about the postcancer person she wants to be. Character development is secondary to the affirmative message in this bonbon of a cancer book.
