I really liked this installment of the "Missing" series. I'm a big fan of the series because it mixes genre so seamlessly for a middle grade audience. While Sent is still my fave, I really enjoyed the twists in Caught. This story deals with some real-world, modernish controversies that are relevent like mental illness, imperfect marriages, and "illegitimate" births. It also humanizes one of the most influential minds in history. It also advanced the overall storyline enough to keep me intrigued in what will happen next. I have about 5 sixth graders hooked on this series, and now that I've finished this one, there will be a fight over who gets to read it next. Can't wait to discuss it with them!
