“You are one of the missing,” reads the letter addressed to Jonah. What could this mean? Find out in Found by Margaret Paterson Haddix.

Author: Margaret Paterson Haddix

Jonah has always known he was adopted. So when he started receiving creepy letters that read “You are one of the missing” and “Beware! They’re coming back to get you,” Jonah thought some school kids were pulling a prank. But then his friend Chip receives the same letter and confronts his parents, only to discover that he was adopted too! How could some random pranksters know that both Jonah and Chip were adopted?


Searching for Answers

Enlisting the help of Jonah’s sister Katherine, Chip and Jonah investigate their adoptions. What were their adoption agencies names? What country were they from? Who were their birth parents? But oddly, the answers were limited.


Names of the Missing

Jonah and Katherine seek out Mr. Reardon, an FBI agent connected to their adoption. During their meeting, Katherine secretly takes pictures of a file on Mr. Reardon’s desk containing names and contact information, including Jonah and Chip. Later, they call the numbers and discover that most refuse to talk about a strange incident that occurred the year that Jonah and Chip were adopted.


The Airplane Incident

One woman saw the truth with her own eyes. While working at the airport, an unscheduled airplane landed—or rather appeared—on the runway. When no passengers unloaded, she went to investigate the problem. She stepped on the plane and found no crew, no pilotonly 36 babies!


The Bottom Line

Margaret Paterson Haddix has delivered more than a mystery with this new series. The Missing: Found is an action-packed, time-warping, heart-pumping adventure! If you like her acclaimed Shadow Children series, then you’ll love The Missing.

    In some states, you can work in a lot of places like fast food restaurants. Or after you ask your parents, see if you can do odd jobs for your neighbors like mowing lawns, cleaning, painting. If you live close to an amusement park, they are usually hiring. Maybe your parents can help you find work.
