Publisher Comments:

Thirteen-year-old Jonah has always known that he was adopted, and he's never thought it was any big deal. Then he and a new friend, Chip, who's also adoped, begin receiving mysterious letters. The first one says, "You are one of the missing." The second one says, "Beware! They're coming back to get you."

Jonah, Chip, and Jonah's sister, Katherine, are plunged into a mystery that involves the FBI, a vast smuggling operation, an airplane that appeared out of nowhere — and people who seem to appear and disappear at will. The kids discover they are caught in a battle between two opposing forces that want very different things for Jonah and Chip's lives.

Do Jonah and Chip have any choice in the matter? And what should they choose when both alternatives are horrifying?

With Found, Margaret Peterson Haddix begins a new series that promises to be every bit as suspenseful as her Shadow Children series — which has sold more than 41/2 million copies — and proves her, once again, to be a master of the page-turner.

Synopsis:

One night a plane appears out of nowhere, the only passengers aboard: 36 babies. As soon as they are taken off the plane, they vanish. Now, 13 years later, two of those children are receiving sinister messages, and they begin to investigate their past.

Synopsis:

Veronika. Caroline. Isobel. Eleanor. One blond, one brunette, one redhead, one with hair black as tar. Four otherwise identical girls who spend their days in sync, tasked to learn. But when May, a very different kind of girl—the lone survivor of a recent shipwreck—suddenly and mysteriously arrives on the island, an unsettling mirror is about to be held up to the life the girls have never before questioned.

Sly and unsettling, Gordon Dahlquists timeless and evocative storytelling blurs the lines between contemporary and sci-fi with a story that is sure to linger in readers minds long after the final page has been turned.

 

Synopsis:

Adventure is in Tory Brennan's blood. After all, she’s the grandniece of world-famous forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. Always up for a challenge, Tory and her science-geek friends spend their time exploring the marshlands of Loggerhead Island, home to the very off-limits Loggerhead Island Research Institute, where something strange is going on. After rescuing a stray wolfdog pup from a top-secret lab, Tory and her friends are exposed to a rare strain of canine parvovirus, changing them--and their DNA--forever. Now they are more than friends. They are a pack. They are Virals. And they're dangerous to the core. But are they unstoppable enough to catch a cold-blooded murderer?

Found By: Margret Peterson Haddix
In Found by Haddix, Jonah and his friend Chip both know they are adopted, and when they begin receiving mysterious letters that say, “You are one of the missing,” and, “Beware! They are coming back to get you,” things become difficult. Jonah and Chip start to question their past and their heritage, as well as their future. When strange things continue happening to both of the boys, Jonah and Chip wonder if the occurrences are really about their birth parents, or something more. The book’s plot is like no other, it is intricate and well thought out, which is my favorite characteristic of the author. However, during some parts of this book, I would hold off on reading because it got very uninteresting. I found myself wanting to stop reading all together. It was lacking in word choice and suspense at times, and I do not think it was intended for older teens. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing; younger children could have easily enjoyed the story. The only parts that I liked were the fight scenes at the end, because these provided the most entertainment, and it wasn’t enough of a cliff hanger to make me keep reading the series. I wish I had read this book sooner because I love the author’s other work, but I was disappointed that this was for a lower level age group. I would definitely recommend Found to nine and ten-year-olds, and any of Haddix’s other books to everyone.

"I wonder if thee are good turkey legs in 1805?" Found is written by Margret Peterson Haddix. This book is terribly exciting when the main characters are taken and outside of time. A fight broke out in the cave and everyone was scared. When I was reading this I felt tension along with excitement and fear because a powerful and dangerous weapon is shot into the ceiling. The gun was described as shooting out lightning, Which really caught my eye! I think the author wrote this book for teens and really young adults because the characters seem to cuss a lot. I loved this book because of the excitement and comedy and I have and will continue to recommend this book to any of my friends.
