Back to Books

The Missing is a fairly new kids book series from Margaret Peterson Haddix that has become quite popular among middle school age kids. As of writing this article three of the books have been released and four more are planned.


Jonah and his sister Katherine are adopted children. They think they are normal until they start receiving strange messages. Their adopted friend Chip is getting the same messages. They soon find out that they are "missing" children from past history. As they start to dig into who they are they discover all sorts of mysteries and adventures. They need to go back in time, discover who they really are, and fix what has happened. However, there are others who don't want them to succeed….

In each book of the series we learn more and more about the missing children; who their real identities are, where they are from, and why they were missing. JB of the Time Police assists them in going back in time and fixing history. The challenge for the children is can they go back in time, fix history, and still survive to return to the 20th century and the only lives they've know.
