I was SO excited! I really love this series. This book is part of a series. If you have not read Found, Sent and Sabotaged, read on at your own risk!
Jonah and Katherine have been hurled through time yet again, and they have no idea where or when they are at first. They soon discover that they are on Henry Hudsons ship, Discovery, and a mutiny is afoot. Jonah must disguise After a tip from the author on her facebook page, I put my name in, and I got an advanced copy of this book! Jonah and Katherine are thrust from one life-threatening situation to another in this fast paced tale. In the past their missions have been to set history back on course, so that is what they set out to do once again, but they soon discover that someone is working against them.
Time is very near collapsing, causing the end of all things past, present, and future. Will Jonah and Katherine be able to stop it? I love the idea of this series: Missing children stolen from the point in time before they were lost, brought to the future and raised by foster parents as modern day kids. Just unraveling the mystery which sets up the rest of the series kept me completely enthralled. Several characters go back in time to England during the War of the Roses in the second book, Sent.
I love this period of history, and again, I was very entertained and captivated by the story. In book three, Sabotaged, the characters travel back to the site of the Roanoke colony, but another element is introduced to the series as well.
A villain from the future named Second, who is on a mission to make his own version of history, steps in to really complicate things. The real mystery is actually very interesting. Jonah and Katherine enter another version of history very early on in the book because Second makes changes and sets history on a new course. So Torn was lacking one of the things I love about the series, a way to learn about an actual historical event. The events in Torn were mostly created by Haddix.
And the facts and tidbits that were true were things that I already knew. I will say, however, that I think most middle grade readers could learn something of history by reading this book. Younger readers have probably not read the amount of historical fiction I have or taken the advanced history classes that I have for that matter. Her characters are very distinct and likable.
That is not the case in The Missing series. Although there are times when I question how much these kids remember about their social studies classes. They must have awesome teachers at that school! The pacing of the story is also excellent. It keeps moving at a fast clip. So far every book in this series has kept me guessing about what will happen right up until the very end.
I have become a very analytical reader. This series should not be read out of order. So hopefully anyone reading Torn will have already read books one through three.
The people reading this book are probably already fans, and if you are a fan of the Missing series, you will appreciate Torn for what it is: another fast paced adventure, another chance to get to spend some time with Jonah and Katherine, and a vehicle that keeps the series moving on! Yes, there are three more books in this series, and I am very glad for that. I just hope the next one happens in a more interesting time and place.

Found[ edit ] A thirteen-year-old boy named Jonah had always known that he was adopted and had never thought much of it until he began receiving strange letters sent to his house. They end up in the middle of FBI investigation, people appearing and disappearing, and a strange tale from a woman named Angela DuPre, who saw a plane appear and later disappear from nowhere, and discovered 36 babies on board, minus pilot and copilot. The three come to realize that Jonah and Chip are important missing children from history who were transported to the 21st century by baby smuggling time travelers, whose names are Gary and Hodge. Later, they are unknowingly lured into a cave, known as a time hollow, with all but one of the other 36 missing children in an attempt by the smugglers to take them to the future. After they have defeated the smugglers, another time traveler from the future known to them as JB Janitor Boy decides to send Chip and another boy, Alex Curtis, back to the s, where they were originally taken from. While trying to stop him, Jonah and Katherine are accidentally taken along for the trip as well, leaving it up to them to save their friends and return to the 21st century. This sets the plot and the title for the following book in the series, "Sent".
