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

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
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

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
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

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
Brooke Cheesman
Sabotaged was an awesome book. Sabotaged had great detail and great rising actions and everything! Some parts were great then others. Some parts of the book could of been a little bit better then they were. But I absolutely, positively recommend this book. But, make sure you read the books before it. The books before it are: 1 Found 2 Sent and then the book Sabotaged. So who ever reads this book Sabotaged, I hope like it or even love it!

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

Again, this is NOT a complicated book. This is a book for young adults.

That being said, I liked it.

The story includes Jonah and Katherine again as they get sent back to the 16th century to help Andrea - one of the girls that had been kidnapped from time and sent to the future - go back and find her "normal" life again and save her and fix time. This would be a very short book if things had gone according to plan...luckily, for us, it didn't. They go back and right from the start things are goin

Sabotaged, The missing: Book 3

This is a story about a Thirteen-year-old Jonah Skidmore feels like an average kid, and always complete with an intelligent but slightly annoying younger sister named Katherine, a mom and dad who constantly reassure their children that they are special and well loved, and a quiet home in the suburbs of Ohio. The fact that Jonah is adopted has never been a big deal for him, maybe because his parents have always been so open and reassuring about it. To Jonah, life fe

Jonah and Katherine Skidmore have been sent back to their normal time, but then are immediately asked back to return another missing child. However, this time around there's a bit of a twist to restoring time. Andrea, the missing child, had changed where she, Jonah, and Katherine were supposed to land in time. Now they must find Andrea's tracer when they have no idea where it where it is. But there's even a bigger problem with someone monitoring them every minute

**Spoiler Alert**

Do you like books that never starts getting boring? Well this is the book for you. This is a science fiction book because it has to do with time travel. In my opinion this book was better than the second book "Sent" because this book had a surprise twist at the end of the book.

The setting for this book takes place in the 1600's on the Roanoke island. Jonah wanted to help Andrea survive from dying in the past but a guy named Second tricked Andrea to going to the wrong place in

Have to admit that I didn't enjoy this edition in the series as much as the previous ones. The reason for that may be due to my not being familiar with the historical events depicted having never heard of Virginia Dare, or her legend.

However, as it turned out there really wasn't much (known) about the first English child born in the USA, unlike the previous subject of the returned children, the missing princes from the Tower of London. This leads to a lot of other things happening, and that's n

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. :)

I liked the book Sabotaged, the third book of "The Missing"series for several reasons. First I liked it because this book has a lot of adventure. For example, when Jonah, the main character of the story, accompanied with Katherine, his half sister, and Andrea, an exported girl from history, (I might add that she is actually Virginia Dare!) go to Roanoke island. What happens is that the group founds a strange letter saying 'Eat. Enjoy. You're doing great'. Another letter is sayi
Even though there are more books in the "Missing" series, this will be the last one I read. In the previous installments, the characters were upbeat and smart, but in this book, they continually whined and fought. I was very intrigued by the premise of discovering Virginia Dare, but the story was so boring and drawn out that I simply did not enjoy it. It finally started to get good in the last 50 pages, but 25 of those pages were the author's afterword, which, in my opinion, was better than the ...more
