Just as best friends Chip and Jonah discover they're actually children kidnapped from history, they get sent back to their proper time period. Landing in the much-feared Tower of London in 1483, Chip realizes he's actually Edward V, the king of England, and Alex (another time-traveler) is his younger brother Richard, the Duke of York.

Have you ever read a "Haddix" book? No, then check out this review. This is my first "Haddix" book and it was incredible. I didn't read the first book in this series and I probably should have because that left alot of plot holes for me. Anyways, this book is about 4 kids who are from 3 different time periods in history and maybe even the future. 3 of them were brought to the Twenty-First Century by two evil kidnappers named Gary and Hodge. In "Sent" Jonah and Katherine (Jonah was kidnapped from ...more

Picking up right where the previous book left off, Sent kicks off the actual time traveling portion of the series by stranding viewpoint character Jonah and his friend, Chip, in the 15th century. See, Jonah and Chip (and about thirty other kids) aren't originally from the 21st century. Each of them was born in another time, and whisked away as "endangered" children to be adopted in the future. And now, they're all supposed to be sent back to their original times, to meet their original fates.

Jonah, Chip, Katherine, and a boy named Alex land in the 15th century and find out that Alex is a British prince and Chip is a king. Then they find Chip and Alex’s tracers. (Projections of what time would be like if time travelers hadn’t interfered.) Suddenly, two men come into the room and try to kill Chip and Alex by throwing them out a window. Right before they do, Jonah pulls Chip and Alex away from their tracers. They find out that Richard III, Duke of Gloucester, is trying to kill Chip an ...more
Find a bunch of historical children with tragic destinies. Collect a planeful and drop them in the 20th century. Now, why, exactly, is it so important to put them back?

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

The first book of the series was definitely better than this one, and less confusing. I read a few time travel books before, (all with altering the future precautions...and stuff) but this one probably provided more confusion than most.

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

خوب این اولین ریویو منه که فارسی مینویسم, اطمینان دارم خوب نمیشه ولی گفتم تلاشمو کرده باشم.
جلد دوم این مجموعه خیلی جذبم نکرد,انگار رده سنی کتاب یه دفه چندین سال کمتر شد, و بزرگترین مشکلی که حس کردم این بود که طی داستان نویسنده انگار میخواست همه چیزو توجیه کنه و سر و ته قضیه رو هم بیاره. به خواننده مهلت نمیداد چیزی رو کشف کنه یا سعی کنه درک کنه , همه چیزو توضیح میداد و از سرش باز میکرد.
نکات تاریخی شو دوست داشتم, همینطور شخصیت های یونا و کاترین
امیدوارم جلد سوم جذاب تر بشه

I don’t always review more than one book in a series, but in this case, the sequel was as good as the original. At the end of book one, Jonah, Katherine and Chip find themselves whirling through time. In book two, they emerge in the year 1483. Because Chip isn’t just their 21st century neighbor, he’s Edward V, King of England, and he’s about to become worm food. To prevent “the ripple” from affecting all of time, it’s crucial that Chip return to the years he was stolen from so events will play o ...more

A fast-moving, conspiracy-filled plot made Book 1 of this series - Found - a page-turner. Unfortunately, 99% of Sent takes place in the 1480s where the action moves rather more slowly. Yes, there is a bit of political intrigue, the danger of being discovered, and of course the worry that one will affect time adversely. However, it never feels like the kids are in any real danger and thus this reads like a slightly more intense installment of the Magic Tree House series. This is probably due to t ...more

Personal response
I thought this book was was easy to enjoy, but I thought the author could have added more detail. I found myself getting lost with what was going on because the details were not very good. The author added a little bit of detail here and there, but not enough to make the story easy to understand.

Sent is book number two in The Child of the Missing series. It is about Jonah and his younger sister, Katherine, going back to the 16th century and returning Jonah's best friend Chi
Personal Response: I thought this book was very good for the second book of the series. Sent gives me sense of mystery and suspense enough for me to keep reading. I am looking forward to reading more into the series.

Plot: In the story Sent by Margret Peterson Haddix, the kids are sent back in time to the fifteenth century to reverse and fix time. Chip finally finds out he has a brother along with a spot on the royal family. They face many dangers in trying to save Chip and Alex's life by almost

Sent, by Margaret Peterson Haddix, is the second book of the Missing Series. The main characters, Jonah and Katherine, along with their friends Chip and Alex, travel back in time to the fifteenth century. There they must prevent Chip’s and Alex’s death from criminals seeking to kill them. Jonah, Chip, and Alex find out that they are all children taken from history and sold into adoption to live in the 21st century, rather than their original time periods. Chip and Alex, in history, are royalty. ...more
I was in need of a light read, so I grabbed this from my kids' shelf. For middle grade readers, it may be a 4-star, for me a 3.

This is the second book in Haddix's series that features endangered children from history who are kidnapped by time travelers in order to protect them from their fate. Being taken by time traveling children is as plausible of a theory as some I've heard regarding the Princes in the Tower, so why not?

Having not read the first novel, in which a group of children discover t

After reading Found (Book 1 of The Missing series) I had to read the follow up.
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

I liked the first one in the series better. I have to admit I'm always at a disadvantage when it comes to books & movies about time travel, because I get totally confused. This book was even more confusing to me than usual. The author uses "tracers" in this story - basically your "ghost" that shows what you would have been doing if time hadn't been tampered with. I just couldn't get my mind around the tracer idea, so I never could get into the plot... The characters end up in 15th century En ...more

I bought this book a while ago at my school's book fair. I did not enjoy this book. I regret buying it. I hated it. I read quite a few pages and I did not understand anything. I don't think the author did a good job of explaing.
I did not know who was who,and what was going on. I did not know what was the setting, what was in the setting, and who the enemies and friends were. I did not understand what had previously happened, and what was going on in the present. I could not imagine the scenes i

Unlike most middle-of-series books, I found Sent to be even more gripping and interesting than Found, the first volume. I am completely fascinated by Haddix's original ideas of time travel. This adventure picks up right where the last broke off, as the two sort-of princes and Jonah and Katherine are falling through time back to the fourteenth century. Jonah and Katherine have to help Chip and Alex, or their historical counterparts, stay alive and reset the messed-up past. Sound complicated? It i ...more

I thought that this book was the kind of book that made you feel like you loved it because you hated it, because Jonah and his sister were on a Journey going through time trying to fix the spots in time where they were missing, like, having to plant the tree to curve the road before Richard declared war, but along the way, there were always consequences to fixing something, which I'm not going to spoil, and In the middle of trying to fix the elucidator, so they can travel to their next time peri ...more
I didn't find this to be nearly as engrossing as the first in the series. But it did keep the interest of my fifth grade class as I read it aloud - although not quite as well as the first one. Several of them have started reading other books further on in the series on their own, so they definitely want to find out what happens next. This is a very nice science fiction series for middle grade readers.

This book is amazing, and Margaret Peterson Haddix is a great author.
It's kind of wacky, because Joshua, Chip, Katherine, and Alex get sent into the fifteenth century, were they have to fight in a battle, pretend to be angels in front of the bad guy, and save Chip from being killed.
Renee Brown
An enjoyable read - but not as riveting as the first book (Found). I liked the cover art and the time travel theme, but (for me) this lacked the suspenseful element that I enjoyed so much in the first book. Still, a god read and Ilook forward to additonal adventures in the series.

I think this is an intreging book that you could stay up all night reading. The first book is very important tonyour understanding. The covers look really weird and ugly, but NEVER judge a book by it's cover.
I loved Found, the first in the Missing series. However, I couldn't get through this one. It took the kids 9 chapters to get out of one room. I don't know if kids will stick with it.

“But did he go to heaven?" Katherine persisted.
"That's between him and God, not him and history," JB said.
Alex started, jerking so spastically that he kicked the basketball and would have sent it spinning out into the street if Chip hadn't caught it. Amazingly, Chip still seemed to have a swordsman's quick reflexes.
"YOU believe in God?" Alex asked JB incredulously. "But you know how to travel through time. You're a scientist." He hesitated. "Aren't you?"
JB rolled his eyes.
"It amazes me how people of your time set up such a false dichotomy between science and religion. Fortunately, that only lasts for another... well, I can't tell you that," he said, stopping himself just in time. "But I assure you, the more I travel through time, the more I witness, the more I realize that there are things that are both strange and wonderful, far beyond human comprehension." (pgs 299-300)”
“To quote a famous philosopher revered in my time 'But this is no different from regular life. When have you ever known what's going to happen in the future?'" Wait a minute, Jonah thought. I said that. Back at Westminster, with Katherine. Does that mean I'm going to be a famous philosopher in the future? Does that mean I'm going to be revered? There wasn't time to ask.” 7 likes
