“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.

    Dear Diary,  (2-20-17) So today was crazy after arguing with the fact that i should write this in a real diary but then remembering that my handwriting is terrible.     Okay look, just call me crazy but I saved the new girl in our class. I hate new girls in school. I was one which means I hate myself a couple years ago. That's..actually surprisingly accurate. Not that I'm a bully or anything whatsoever, but she always is automaticlly popular declared by the populist of popular in out class, Victoria. Or Tori for a brief yet still so disgusting I can smell her name from here period. Okay, I think we might be becoming friends after I saved her. You might be thinking, Audrey, just tell us how you saved her! Shut up, okay! I'm getting to that. Anyways, as Victoria is officially awesome, (inflicted by the awesomeness)  she hangs out with another girl which makes Alexei all mad and the whole thing blows up until I'm in the middle. (face palm) And I did some magic talk and problem solved. NOT! Now she says that I'm her friend and I do something crazy for her. She likes a boy in our class, Eddie. He likes Alexei, Alexei likes him. And you guess what i did. MAGIC! Anyways, now she owes me two favors. And that'll be getting me out of my delehma  right now by giving me stomach medicine. Or nose medicine. Either sounds heavenly.

    In my opinion, cutting is not a cry for attention. The person's emotional pain creates some kind of need to feel physical pain, even if this person is not aware of that while doing it. However, on the last couple of years, cutting started to get popular, making some people think that if they cut themselves they will get more attention, which, also in my opinion, is an act of "desperation" and an actual need for attention or friendly advises .   :nerd  :)
