Sent (The Missing #2)
I really adored the first book in this series, but when I...more

Jonah, Katherine, Chip, and Alex arrive in 1483 in a small, dark, room. They soon find out that Chip and Alex were the king and prince of England yanked out of history and brought to the twenty-first century. The four friends set out to save history and themse...more
I try to read all the Lovelace nominees in both divisions so I can speak knowledgeably about them and help students when they are selecting one for their own reading pleasure. For me, Found was a lightning-fast read. I was hooked from...more
I took a little break between this book and the first book and this book, and when I came back to read this book it was less satisfactory than the first book. The key word here is less; it was by no means an unsatisfactory book for an elementary school student like I was. The thing is that this book introduced a new and interesting setting as can be expected with time travel books, especially those of real historical situations. That added a lot of depth and incentive for me to read the book.
It helps to have a knowledge of history when reading this simply because it helps the Reader appreciate the way Margaret Peterson Haddix puts the story of Edward V and his brother, Richard, together. Every fan of history's mysteries (such as the odd...more
I never understood.
But Haddix thinks it's important--at least, replacing the missing children is the premise of her book Sent. The collected princes in Richard III's tower are sent back to the moment of their deaths, with only their friends to save them. But what are the friends saving them from? What are they supposed to do, or...more
So I spent the next 2 days wrestling my 7 year old for her book. Actually, I really did try to let her have it whenever she wanted it - just stealing it off her side table when she was asleep for the night :)
Found picks up exactly where Sent left off, with Jonah, Katherine, Chip and Alex hurtling through a time warp toward 1483, where Chip and Alex were stolen from time. In their original lives, Chip and Alex were (re...more
I liked that it was based on a real historical mystery, but I'm not big on English rule and all, so I wasn't that sure if it was real or not until I looked it up. Tracers were something new, and I liked them. The idea was really neat; I'd rather have them than not...more
They have been sent back in time to the 1400's. They find out that Chip is King Edward. Alex is his cousin. They need to fix time so that Chips uncle doesn't kill him.
I liked t...more
Haddix does eventually setup her rules of time travel, but they are late in coming. Perh...more
Haddix seemed to attempt to discuss the "butterfly effect", i.e. everything impacting everything else in even minute ways, enough to change the outcome of everything, but I think she fell short.
I found the historical part of...more
However, once I picked up the book I was pleasantly surprised to see how it went. There was enough leeway in the part of history they knew and the structure of her universe to give them boundaries to manage. JB is a resource they don...more
Sent is the second in the Missing series. In this book Jonah, Katherine, Chip, and there new friend Alex travel back in time to 1483 and discover that Chip's true identity is England's Edward V, and that Alex is his younger brother!

I kind of dislike this book more than the first book so I gave...more
