I heard about Caught The Missing: But after listening to her speak about writing and her stories I was captivated and eager to learn more about her work. The general premise of the books are that in the future when time travel has been invented wealthy people are able to hire time travelers to go back through time and steal the children of famous people. Jonah, the protagonist, of the series is one of those missing children, but his true origins are secret.
Due to the laws of time travel, the children that are taken are unable to return to their original timelines and are thus left to carry on new lives in the 20 th Century. Overall this is a very good book, so good in fact that it only took me two times to finish the book.
Haddix provides well developed characters, setting, and plot along with a fast paced mystery adventure. The cover art promises an adventure with otherworldly encounters and the story succeeds in fulfilling its promise.
The Missing (novel series)
For petdrson this book was a wonderful surprise because it combines science and history. The science fiction of the story is time travel. What Haddix provides are broad strokes that hit the high points for children and for the adult reader there is enough information to know that the writer has developed a science for time travel.
While I love science and math it always comes down to the characters because characters are the make or break in a series. While I really wanted Jonah and Katherine to be extraordinary, I later found myself happy that they were just normal kids in extraordinary circumstances. Haddix could have taken the relationship between Jonah and Katherine in many directions, but the fact that they are partners and best-friends adds something special to each character.

They are personable with a lot of room for growth, which is good to have. In their adventures they are often accompanied by another missing child and JB, a time travel agent who has helped Jonah and Katherine to rescue and relocate missing children.
Unfortunately in this book, the relationship between JB and Jonah is not at the forefront, but there is some dialogue at the end which shows a brotherly relationship between the two. Should I read it or Not? You are commenting using your WordPress.
