Sabotage picks up where Sent ended. Basically Jonah and Katherine are bringing those kids snagged out of their time periods to fulfill their destiny in their proper time periods. They can then bring them back to live their lives as they were NOW and all of time and space will not be changed because the paradox. Does that make sense?! Time travel is complicated, don’t believe me ask the Doctor!

Turns out that Andrea, is Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the new world on the infamous R...more

I sort of felt like this was weaker then the previous books in the series, and the ending was a bit anticlimactic. The new characters were a bit boring, and didn't contribute so much, in my opinion. The end provided many new directions in which the story can progress, and I'd like to see where it goes, and hope it gets better.
So I was pretty bummed out by the third installment of The Missing series after I had been soooooooooo excited to finally get it from the library. What started off as something fun and interesting in the first two books, left me bored and apathetic in this one. I really didn't care for Andrea's character and it seemed like Haddix was reaching to give us a story to continue her sereies. I'll probably still read the next one when it comes out, but I won't be holding my breath.
I finished reading this book:( In this book Jonah, Kathrine and Andrea go into the 1600s to fix that time period because Andrea is really Virgina Dare. When travling through time, they lose the elucidator. They soon also realise that they are being sabotaged a person that goes by the name " Second " Will they get back to the 21st century alive? Read this book and the rest of the series to find out!
I still love the concept behind this series, although I found this book to be less captivating than the first two.

This time, Haddix's time traveling series takes us to early America where Andrea learns that she is actually Virginia Dare. However, immediately upon arriving, the kids find themselves in lots of trouble. They've lost the Elucidator (which allows them to communicate with the time-travelling adults who are helping them) and it seems that someone out there is trying to sabotage their m...more
Don't ask me why I read this book. I didn't really like "Sent." I liked this one more than #2, but that's really no excuse as to why I picked it up in the first place. I didn't like "Sent" because the science fiction seemed all off and it suddenly went historical fiction (though kudos for tricking all those kids into reading about history), and that's still true in "Sabotaged." What's also true in this one, only seemed even worse, is that the kids take forever to figure things out. I know they'r...more
I would actually give this a 2 1/2 stars, but rounded down because it took me so long to finish it--not really pointing to a great book.

Jonah and his sister Katherine must do it again. They must go back in time and save another lost child from history. After saving Chip and Alex from the 15th century, they are now asked to take Andrea, who just so happens to be Virginia Dare-first English child born in America, back to the 1600s. However, even though last time was hard, this time around everythi...more

I am always intrigued with Margaret Peterson Haddix's plot ideas, but her writing is pretty annoying after awhile. This is the third installment in her Missing series, which started with the book Found. It was a really intriguing story, so I have hung with the next two.
But the details get convoluted. It is based on time travel, and there are lots of hard-to-follow rules of time to keep up with, plus a lot of overly emotional tweens and teens. The story is told from the point of view of Jonah, a...more
Another Dare-ing adventure through time with JB, Katherine, and Jonah. Our time traveling trio will try to solve the history mystery of the Roanoke Colony.

Haddix has found a way to mix science fiction and social studies education together in a neat package with “The Missing” series. Many kids aren’t that interested in history itself, but what happens if you time travel and get dropped into the middle of history? Now that is interesting! I commend Haddix because she researches her history well an...more

When I started reading Margaret Peterson Haddix’s, I wasn’t expecting it to turn out being as great as it was. It takes place in Colonial America. The main characters, Jonah, Kathryn, and Andrea, aka Virginia Dare, the first English child to be born in America. The book is being told in third person view. The series is about time travel and a group of kids who were stolen from the past, so they could be adopted by parents in the future. The kids are trying to go back in time and fix what was do...more

This is the third book in "The Missing" series. The main characters in this story travel through time to Roanoke Colony, the "lost colony" to return one of the missing to her time. However, the trip is sabotaged and this threatens the ability of the time travelers to return to modern times. They must figure out who has sabotaged the trip and why before it is too late.

I have enjoyed the first two books in this series, and think the premise of these books is very interesting, but this is the weak...more

Sabatoged is about Jonah and his sister Katherine and Andrea Crowell, a missing child from 1465 who get thrown back into history to try and reunite Andrea with her original self. When the three teens are left stranded with no food, shelter or any way to communicate with anyone from modern times not even their parents, tempers flair and they get so frustrated they can't think straight. I rated this book two out of five stars because of the confusion and the concept of the history tracers. I recom...more

I really enjoyed this one more than either of the first two (which were also quite good). The historical reference was well buried in the story so that many kids might not even realize they were learning without completely obscuring the facts and information used to make the story accurate. Of course, the author backs up the information she used with references and thoughtful retrospection. I would recommend this book to people of all ages, although the kids in the story are young, the writing i...more
Mar 29, 2010 Robin marked it as to-read  ·  review of another edition
This was the last galley on the publisher's table and I had to wrestle it out of another librarian's hands--well, not quite that bad, but she did pick it up just as I was going to reach for it. Then she looked at my puppy dog pleading eyes and decided to give it to me instead. This is the sequel to The Missing series, which are terrific time-travel stories for kids.
This third book in Haddix's latest series went on far too long for me. I like the premise and enjoyed the historical information, but too little is known about the vanished Roanoke Colony to sustain the story over so many pages. Here's hoping the editor holds the following volumes in the Missing series to a shorter length, or else this is one reader who will be missing, too.
Another great book in Margaret Peterson Haddix's series "The Missing!" I have always been fascinated with the mystery of Virginia Dare and the others from Roanoake Island, so I really enjoyed this book. The "Author's Note" at the end of the book (make sure you read these in all of the books in this series, by the way) were especially intriguing. I had seen the outdoor play "Strike at the Wind" several years ago, so I knew that the Lumbee Indians believe that many of the Roanoake survivors are th...more
The main reason I loved this book is because the lost child from history is Viginia Dare, the 1st English childborn in the new land. As i learned in Social Studies which is probably my favorite class because i love learning about the American Revolution. :)
A little harder for me to get into than the first two.
Intense. Read it in one evening. Go Jonah!
This book was the worst book in the missing sires in my opinion. It had nothing that made me want to read the next page. The only reason I read it was because I wanted to know who Jonah was. The book was about them trying to find Andrea's real time and where she was supposed to be. Throughout the book they start to mess time up by letting people see them. As they go they start to make new friends. The People they meet help them throughout the book finding new clues and miseries endings to the si...more
Sabotaged is book number 3 in the missing series and, this book kinda disappointed me because I thought that this book was going to tell what famous kid from history Jonah was but it was'nt. It's about this girl Andrea that is a famous missing kid from history that came in to the story in the second book (Sent). They travel to the 1600's to find Andrea's tracer ( read the first book to figure out what a tracer is if you don't know ) on the islands of Croaton and in the Roanoke Colony. Yes, these...more

Things I Liked:
I'm always up for fun time travel adventures that help me learn more about history. This series is pretty entertaining with a unique premise that keeps you invested in the characters. I definitely knew next to nothing about the Roanoke colony, so this was really interesting to learn more about. In fact, I think reading anything about such a strange historical mystery would be interesting. The ending will definitely leave you dying to know what happens next. The narrator, Chris Sor...more

Jonah, Katherine, and a girl named Andrea are in JBs' hideout where they find out that Andrea is Virginia Dare, the first baby born to the New England colonists. While they are traveling through time they loose the Elucinator. (A future gun/computer.) And they have no idea what time period they are in. While they are walking along a beach, they see a drowning man. They manage to save him and pull him ashore. Then they follow the man’s and two Indian’s tracers ( What time would be like if time tr...more
I enjoyed this book, as I said with Sentthe book before this. Starting with Found this series is about famous children through time, who we kidnapped to be sold to the people of the future. In Found they found out what happened and what they where. In Sent Jonah and Katherine helped Alex and Chip fix their history as princes of England. Now in Sabotaged they are helping Andrea (Who is Virginia Dare in history) to fix history.

This one was interesting because at least to me, it made you think abou...more
First off, I'm very behind on reviews. Even more behind than I was when I this summer when I was on vacation for over a week without internet access other than my iPod. So this will be a short review, for which I apologize in advance.

For such an action-packed book, Sabotaged somehow managed to remain largely without plot. Yes, there was an issue throughout the story, but it felt to me like not much was happening. The characters spent huge amounts of time trying to figure out what was going on,...more
This book was really good! Haddix again proved to us that her writing skills are supreme!
This time, Jonah and Katherine help Andrea, who's really Virginia Dare, get back to her time. It's supposed to be simple, but things go wrong once they lose the Elucidator and find themselves in a different time period then the one they were supposed to be. As they try to figure out what happened to the Roanoke colonists, they realize that there's an even bigger mystery they have to solve - who sent them her...more
