Описание

With the same heightened suspense and intrigue that made her Shadow Children books—including Among the Hidden—best-sellers, acclaimed young adult author Margaret Peterson Haddix presents the first entry in a thrilling new series.

Thirteen years ago, a plane materialized out of thin air with 36 babies on board and no one at the controls. Jonah and Chip, passengers of that mysterious vessel, are now caught in the middle of a deadly struggle between the FBI and a sinister, unseen force.

Об авторе

Margaret Peterson Haddix grew up on a farm in Ohio. As a kid, she knew two girls who had the exact same first, middle, and last names and shared the same birthday—only one year apart—and she always thought that was bizarre. As an adult, Haddix worked as a newspaper reporter and copy editor in Indiana before her first book, Running Out of Time, was published. She has since written more than forty books for kids and teens, including the Greystone Secrets series, the Shadow Children series, the Missing series, the Children of Exile series, and lots of stand-alones. Haddix and her husband, Doug, now live in Columbus, Ohio, where they raised their two kids. You can learn more about her at www.haddixbooks.com.

    A plane arrives at an airline gate unnoticed by radar and most personnel. There are no flight attendants, no pilot, in fact no adults at all, but there are 36 passengers-each seat is inhabited by an infant. Thirteen years later in Ohio, teenage adoptees Jonah and his friend Chip begin receiving ominous messages declaring that they are among "the missing" and that someone is coming to find them. Frightened yet intrigued, the boys begin a search for their real identities with the help of Jonah's younger sister. Their search leads them to a discovery that strains credulity and leads them into danger greater than they ever imagined possible. The story is driven by an exciting plot rather than extensive character development, and the teens act independently of the adults, who appear as "bad guys" or are basically useless.

    I have read many books by Margaret Peterson Haddix, so I was looking forward to starting The Missing series. Found intrigued me and I was interested in the mystery. It was fun trying to figure out everything on my own and the story moved at a quick pace. I think this book will appeal to kids in fourth grade and up who like books that involve science fiction and suspense. The three main characters are different enough that they have their own unique personalities, but close enough in age that kids will easily be able to relate to them. This book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I know I'll have to get the second book to see what happens. Luckily, I think most of the series is out now so if there are any more cliffhangers I won't have to wait long before I find the answers! A book that will definitely keep readers turning the pages!

    Jonah Skidmore is adopted and thirteen years old. He's always been comfortable with this, and finds his sister Katherine, one year younger and not adopted, no more irritating than most boys his age find their sisters.

    Then Jonah and his friend Chip, who is also adopted, get mysterious and vaguely threatening letters, telling them that they are among the "missing," and that someone is coming to get them back.

    They start asking questions about their adoptions, and Jonah's father contacts the agency Jonah came from. He's given a name, James Reardon, who may have more information about where Jonah came from.

    He's with the FBI.

    On a visit to his office with their parents, Jonah and Katherine get a list of other names of children adopted at the same time they were. They have to sneak; Reardon apparently had nothing he wanted to tell them, but only to make clear to the Skidmores that any questions could result in Jonah being deported.

    What is going on?

    As more and more strange events surround Jonah and Chip, and they learn that other children on the mysterious list are getting letters, too,

    The story is fast-paced, clever, and deals honestly with the feelings and frustrations of adopted children.

    It should also be noted that this is the first of a series, and while there is a resolution of a sort at the end, it's also the beginning of the longer, larger story.

    A strong opening to a series.

    I bought this book.

    Good ending - makes me want to read the rest of the series!

    Oh dear. I had more fun reading this than I expected, or even desired. Normally I don't like adventures, page turners or series... but I got sucked in to this world and now I have to find time to find out what happens next to these delightfully smart and nice kids.

    Also: Cincinatti chili - chili served on spaghetti, with chopped onions (I assume yellow) & shredded cheese (I assume cheddar) as garnish.

    The book has a great beginning and end. The author started losing my attention in the middle due to it being a bit slow and wanting to spell things out. There were some good suspenseful moments though. The ending was great though. It seemed like the whole book was just a really long introduction into the series.

    WOW! This is AMAZING! It's definitely unique and creative! Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix definitely exceeded my expectations with it's quick pace, suspense, and exceptional writing! I am definitely impressed with this sci-fi series-starter!

    To start: the praises...which in this case are many! Let me just say that the plot of Found is awesome! It's got everything: originality, uniqueness, and overall great writing. It starts off with a BANG! in the prologue, and continues just like that until the very last page. (Speaking of the last page, the end was SUPER cliffhanger!) I must say that I quite like Haddix's writing style, and how suspenseful her books are. She has a way with words! The pacing in Found is also quite good; I felt like it was never too slow or too fast.

    Additionally, the characters were well-developed and very realistic. I quite liked the characters in Found; they were really realistic and very well thought-out. They each had their own personalities (Katherine was the source of sass, Jonah was always - and rightly so - skeptical, and Chip was the "book clown"). And even better the relationships between the characters was also realistic as well.

    All in all, I will definitely be continuing the series! I can't wait to see what Haddix has in store for Jonah, Chip, and Katherine! I'd recommend this story to readers who enjoy adventure and sci-fi. Haddix definitely is a writer to watch!

    Jonah discovers that he is a survivor of something...he just doesn't know what. When mysterious letters begin to show up at his door and his friend's, he follows the clues, which lead him on a mysterious adventure in time travel. This is the first book in the series. Students can read this book to study how an author uses science fiction to create a story that is unrealistic but still appealing to readers. Incorporating the rules of what makes a good science fiction would be fun.

    Deals with some adoption issues and the human want to change the past to rectify situations.

    Found is the first in the Missing Series by Margaret Peterson. It was a very quick read and was paced fairly well. The story is told through Jonah's eyes and often times his voice comes off a little fake. Kids might have a hard time relating to the already dated slang and technology.

    Science fiction story with time traveling teens. This is the first book in the series and sets the foundation and explains the reasons behind the characters ability to travel in time.

    This starts out as a typical MG novel, then turns into a mystery, then into a full out sci-fi. The twist towards the end is amazing, and props to Haddix for thinking of it.
  • (3/5)
    Fans of what I call Haddix's "conspiracy fiction" will enjoy this contemporary-set science fiction novel about time travel. It reads breezily quick but the cave scene gets a little too Scooby-Doo for me ("if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!"). But still, a promising start for a new series.

    A quick, suspenseful read. Time travel that I can actually handle! Woo-hoo!

    this book is about a kid named chip and how he keeps getting strange letters that says You are one of the missing and they find out that chip was adopted. Then chip gets a letter that says they are coming back to get you so his dad sets a appointment with someone and it was a guy that was on the phone when chip picked it up. So he secretly looks through the guys files and finds a document that says survivors on it and one that said beware. Then later on they go to a conference and they hiked to a cave where they had to put there hand on a rock witch was a hand scanner and they get trapped when a door behind them closes and they where told that they where suppose to help fix the twenty first century and they find out that the cave was a time travel device but it was too late they where already in the twenty first century.I like this book because its about time travel.

    When two friends realize they are both adopted and get cryptic letters in the mail, they begin to realize that there are many questions about their identities and that they are in the middle of a struggle from two different groups from the future.
  • (3/5)
    Not as "timeless" as her "Among" series - too many already-dated references - but otherwise okay. However, much of the plot depends on having kids do something they KNOW is stupid. This is bad when adult characters do it, and requires great finesse by the author to make it work, but the author has no excuse for inflicting children with this flaw. At least they have the excuse that they might not know it's stupid, but that has to also be set up properly.
  • (4/5)
    The first in a new series where the children are once again being manipulated by the adults - this time via time travel sure to be popular although it is longer and a bit rambling at times.

    This second time reading this. I'm reviewing the sequel so I wanted it fresh in mind. Great concept. Lots of page-turning suspense. Kind of like a fun mix of Lost, The Twilight Zone, and X-Files for kids. Reluctant readers should find it appealing.
  • (3/5)
    An enjoyable read. I'll definitely continue reading the series. I found the characters a little bit mouthy, especially when they were talking to a stranger who they were seeking information from, but that could just be my age showing.

    I'd recommend this book to kids in Grade 5 to 7 or 8 who are looking for an interesting mystery.

    Jonah has always known he was adopted, so when he gets the first letter in the mail--you are one of the missing--he's able to tell himself it's just a prank. But when his friend Chip gets one, too, it's less funny. Especially since Chip didn't know that he, too, was adopted. As they both start asking questions, they learn that the circumstances of their adoptions were even more mysterious than they'd ever dreamed...

    Intriguing and engrossing, the kind of book you fight off sleep for. The denouement is a little muddled into an action sequence with bits of exposition sprinkled through, but it had to end somewhere, I guess. I'm not as blown away by it as I was the first book of her Shadow Children series, and this is more obviously setting up sequels, but I'll keep reading it for a while.

    An interesting twist on time travel. It really leaves you hanging at the end and I'm glad I waited to read the series so I can read on quickly. Fans of the author's Shadow Children series might like this one too.

    This book is about a boy who is confused about people vanishing into thin air and has a strange part in being one of the "Missing".
  • (4/5)
    An easy, and mostly enjoyable read, Haddix's _Found_ explores the story of two adopted boys, coming to learn about their unique past, though not really getting many of their questions answered. While I understand a series was planned from the start, not allowing the first book of a series to stand on its own, does not typically sit well with me. Such is this book, as the final paragraphs only made this reader roll her eyes and snarl a bit, when nothing is wrapped up, everything is left open, and the characters are left in a complete mess.However, Haddix was able to create young tweens and teens that I *mostly* believed, and the story was certainly a unique time-traveler's dilemma. I have book 2 waiting for me, and I'll likely pick it up after a bit, but it will not be the next thing I read.

    This book tells the story of Jonah, Chip, and Katherine and their adventures to try to solve the mystery behind the boys' adoptions. When both boys receive mysterious letters, they team up together and enlist the help of Jonah's sister Katherine to discover the connection of the letters to the boys' mysterious adoptions. They soon come to find out that they are actually from the past and were taken by people in the future to be adopted and "saved". With time being damaged because of their appearance in the 21st century, they must now decide to either live in the future or go back to the past.Genre: Science FictionCritique: This book is a good example of science fiction because it deals with the discussion of time travel, Haddix provides explanation and reasoning that make her imaginative speculation credible. The story also involves Jonah and Chip's personal experiences and how these play into the idea of time travel.Critique of Plot:This book involves multiple types of conflict, but most importantly is person vs. self. Struggling with the concept of identity and adoption, Jonah is having a battle within himself to define who he is. The author is very effective in her use of person vs. self conflict by paralleling Jonah's inward adventure to find himself with his actual journey of discovering his past.Media: n/a

    Part mystery, part science fiction, you'll be kept on high alert as clues are slowly given to Jonah, Katherine, and Chip about where Jonah and Chip came from. Both were adopted as babies and are trying to find out their true identities, and Katherwine's wits are there to help them fill in the pieces. Go along for the ride on this exciting series.

    "Found" by Margaret Peterson was an OK book to me. It wasn't what i had expected. It also isn't my type of book. I like more of the romance/drama books (which explains all the Nicholas Sparks) so this book wasn't really that great for me.

    Listened to this on audio and it definitely kept my attention! Will be checking out book two for sure=)

    I'll admit, I wasn't expecting this book to be what it was when I first got it. I thought that it would be some cheesy time traveling book that had a bunch of cliche quotes in it. Well, I was wrong. It was a lot better than I expected it to be. It was actually a high-paced action thriller with few flaws in it. The main plot focused on a boy that was orphaned at a young age. He eventually finds out that his best friend was also adopted at the same time he was, but it gets wierder.
