FOUND (first in series: The Missing) by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Lost in time?  Or space?

Lost in time? Or space?

BOOK 2: “SENT” is now available in the Wester Library!

 

Flashback:  thirteen years ago, a plane appears from nowhere at an airport terminal.  It wasn’t on anyone’s radar, no one was expecting it:  but suddenly, there it was.  When someone goes to help the passengers, they find an entire planeload … of babies.  As soon as the babies are unloaded, the plane disappears.  Where did it come from?  Where did it GO?

 

Flash forward: have you ever wondered if you were adopted?  What if you found out when someone sent you an anonymous note?  Would you believe it?  Chip can’t.

 

Jonah knows he’s adopted – it’s never been a secret.  The mystery is who could have sent him a letter that tells him, “You are one of the missing.”

 

Chip, Jonah, and Kate want to find out – and they find more than they bargained for: the FBI is involved, along with smugglers and even time travelers, in this cool series starter.  If you liked Haddix’s Among the Hidden series, this is a great choice for you!
