Sobre el autor

Margaret Peterson Haddix grew up on a farm in Ohio. As a kid, she knew two girls who had the exact same first, middle, and last names and shared the same birthday—only one year apart—and she always thought that was bizarre. As an adult, Haddix worked as a newspaper reporter and copy editor in Indiana before her first book, Running Out of Time, was published. She has since written more than forty books for kids and teens, including the Greystone Secrets series, the Shadow Children series, the Missing series, the Children of Exile series, and lots of stand-alones. Haddix and her husband, Doug, now live in Columbus, Ohio, where they raised their two kids. You can learn more about her at www.haddixbooks.com.

    I was on the fence about reading this. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but the premise of this one (time traveling to save kids who were meant to have died in the past) didn't interest me. I thought I'd give it a go since Haddix's work is generally fascinating, and yes, it was good. Time traveling is kind of disturbing to me because of the whole paradox risk thing, but I thought she handled it well, and kept the story interesting. Yes, I'm going to keep reading this series even though there might be thirty books to go.

    I knew that this entered the "4 star" category when I drove across town to pick up the book from where I left it, after a fitful night of kicking myself for leaving it there. Okay, I admit it. I couldn't WAIT to find out what was going to happen next! I don't usually get THIS enthralled with the young adult novels I read, but this was just darn good.

    Never having taken a Physics class, nor having any interest in it at all, I cannot typically handle the concept of time travel, as it requires me to think of time in a non-linear way. I can't. It gives me a headache and I see movies like The Terminator as having an inexcusable plot hole, but really it's just me.

    This novel is time travel for the feeble minded (at least the feebly science-minded). It all made sense, so therefore it's probably scientifically flawed. For those of you who enjoy time travel movies until the end, when you shake your head and say, "Wait, how can the future have happened before the past?????" this novel is for you. There's none of that. The stock brainiac teen character who explains (probably inaccurately, thank goodness) all of the science to the physics-challenged reader does say that one has to stop looking at time as linear, but the story itself doesn't force you to do that.

    The entertainment value of this novel is 5 stars, but it doesn't leave you with anything to think about and didn't change my life in anyway, so I give it 4 stars.

    I'm anxiously awaiting the next one, Haddix. You just keep getting better!

    Not bad - definitely for 5th-6th graders who like history (if they exist).

    I loved this book although i found it to be slightly confusing at times but the more i read the more it made sense I found it to be very thrilling and suspenseful I didn't want to put it down . the same with the others in its series Sabotaged and her newest one Torn

    The second in a series of books that deals with missing children of the past. In this book Jonah and Katherine, his sister, along with Chip and Alex are thrown back in time to the 15th century. Chip and Alex were heirs to the throne in England but were removed or saved from their demise when they were stolen in time. Now Jonah and Katherine must save them from their doom and bring them back to modern day without changing the past.

    Sent is the second book in the "Missing" series of juvenile fiction. I read the first book in May 2011. This book takes Jonah and his sister Katherine and two of their friends on a quest into the past, literally, via time travel.It's a bit of a heavy topic for kids. Goodness, it's a rare book about time travel that doesn't find me arguing against it being possible. I must have outgrown that annoying trait though, or else my love of The Time Traveler's Wife and Back to the Future caused me to just get a grip and go along for the ride!The premise for this series is that some children were removed from their proper time in the past because of what appeared to be inevitable death; another heavy topic.The author manages to handle both topics in such a way that it makes for fun reading, action, and a bit of historical context for young readers.Our sons are reading these books. Matt, age 10, read the first book and insisted I begin it! I love that! So, yes, I am along for the ride! I will probably try to start reading book 3 as soon as I am able. W hen will that be?

    Very disappointing. I really liked the first book, but just couldn't get into book two.

    i think its very interesting!

    Second in The Missing series. Not as much of a page-turner as the first one, but still enjoyable. Don't know if I'll go on to the third.
  • (3/5)
    Fast-paced, engrossing, and an interesting idea, but I still just don't connect with any of the characters. Still, I have plenty of kids in my library who will clamor for this installment.
  • (5/5)
    A great sequel to the first book in the series "Found". I liked reading this book a lot because it was very action packed and exciting. I don't think it was quite as good as the first, but definitely a close call.

    Jounh and Chip are stuck in time and they have to fix it. They aerch throgh england trying to find a way out. This book would be good for people that like history and adventure books.

    It starts at the end of the missing book found. They are at the cave and when they are there in it they meet these kids Jonah,Katherine, and another boy named Alex. And they go back in time to 1483 at the Tower of London. Where they are told to repair history to find out chip and Alex's true identity. Later they figure out that they where King Edward the 5th and that there uncle wants them dead. They find out that they where murdered and they have to fix time.I like this book because at the end of the first book it was like a cliff hanger.

    Book 2 of series. Deals with youngsters feelings about being adopted..what they learn in school (or not), can we change history without changing present or our very own future. Good series to make tweens and teens think on time travel and rewriting history.
  • (4/5)
    This book was a little confusing and some young boys (target audience) might find it a little hard to work through. There is a lot of talk about time travel and how that effects the future. The characters travel through time and witness "tracers" which is a ghostly image of what people would be doing if the characters had not interfered. Sometimes the presence of the tracers and the actual characters make things much more complicated. But Haddix wrapped it all together nicely and made me want to read the next in the series.
  • (4/5)
    This is a very satisfying sequel. Now there's a good bit of history thrown in with the science fiction. It's not essential to have read the first book to enjoy this one, but readers will probably appreciate it more if they do read the first.

    I enjoyed this mystery, adventure much better than the first. There was more action, a lot of interesting historical events as Jonah and his sister travel back to the 1500s to help save their friend Chip, and his brother Alex from the death they were supposed to succomb to.

    This book is the next installment of Jonah, Katherine, and Chips adventure after they find out Jonah and Chip are children stolen from history. Chip and his brother Alex must go back to their real time in the 1400s as the king and a prince of England. Jonah and Katherine follow hoping to save Chip and Alex from their impending death. Through near deaths, battles, and run ins with the king who stole the crown from Chip, the four children work together to all make it back to 2000s with out completely messing up time.Genre: science fiction/ historical fictionCritique: This book is a good example of science fiction as it tells of the human experiences of four children as they dive into the world of time travel. Though fantastic, the element of time travel is in some sense scientifically plausible. Media: N/A

    I would have liked to have known more about the period of history the characters are sent to, before I began the story. I wish the author would have set the stage a little by giving some brief comments about the time period as an introduction to the story. Overall, I thought that it was a worthy contribution to time-travel fiction.

    Sometimes I hate reading a book that just came out, because now I have to wait forever for the next in the series, haha. I'm really enjoying this sci fi/historical fiction by Haddix. I bought book one during the bookfair and I wanted to test it out before cataloging it for the kiddos and right after I had to purchase Sent. I love a good mystery, and by creating a Historical Mystery brought about by Science Fiction means (time machines) this one has really hooked me.

    Chip, Alex, Jonah, and Katherine are stuck in time. They are in the fourteenth century. Will they get back to their time?
  • (4/5)
    Part #2 in The Missing series--can the kids fix time and still stay remain in the present? Part history lesson, part sci-fi, this is a page-turner that will keep you entertained from start to finish!

    Book 2 in the Missing series, where Jonah, Chip, Katherine and Alex find themselves in England in 1483, where Chip and Alex are the royal princes.
