Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–8—Haddix's latest science fiction series starts off with a bang in this nail-biter. A plane arrives at an airline gate unnoticed by radar and most personnel. There are no flight attendants, no pilot, in fact no adults at all, but there are 36 passengers—each seat is inhabited by an infant. Thirteen years later in Ohio, teenage adoptees Jonah and his friend Chip begin receiving ominous messages declaring that they are among "the missing" and that someone is coming to find them. Frightened yet intrigued, the boys begin a search for their real identities with the help of Jonah's younger sister. Their search leads them to a discovery that strains credulity and leads them into danger greater than they ever imagined possible. The story is driven by an exciting plot rather than extensive character development, and the teens act independently of the adults, who appear as "bad guys" or are basically useless. If used in a classroom, the revelation of the babies' identities can be used to kick off a history lesson or two. This book's exciting premise and cliff-hanger ending will leave readers on the edge of their seats and begging for more.—Heather M. Campbell, Philip S. Miller Library, Castle Rock, CO

Review

* "In a tantalizing opener to a new series, Haddix taps into a common childhood fantasy--that you are really the offspring of royalty or famous people, and were somehow adopted by an ordinary family--and one-ups it by adding in time travel...Readers will be hard-pressed to wait for the next installment."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Haddix admirably balances the exposition necessary to shape the first novel of a series while still providing enough life-threatening situations, governmental intrigue, and futuristic weaponry to make this an action-packed stand-alone novel. Readers will surely return for future installments...Science fiction and adventure fans will find much to enjoy in this flashy, suspensful volume."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Fans of Haddix's Shadow Children books will want to jump on this time-travel adventure...The author grabs the readers' attention from the first scene...intriguing enough...to keep kids reading what promises to be an exciting trip through history."--Kirkus Reviews

"As in her Among the Hidden series, Haddix once again demonstrates her talent for penning page-turnes kids will like."--Booklist

"Haddix's latest science fiction series starts off with a bang in this nail-biter...This book's exciting premise and cliff-hanger ending will leave readers on the edge of their seats and begging for more."--School Library Journal --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is Haddix at her best. She's back to sci-fi and the start of a new YA series - hold onto your seats you're in for a page-turning thrill! When the story opens a plane appears out of nowhere filled with 36 babies and no crew. Once the babies are removed from the plane it disappears. That story line is dropped and we pick up a story in suburban America with the protagonist, a well-adjusted adopted child and a friend who has recently found out he's adopted and has been rocked by the news. The story continues with a threatening FBI man, mysterious letters to the kids to beware, people who appear and disappear at will, a very strange conference for adoptees, and then a little time travel. Haddix has the reader flipping pages at break-neck speed from the prologue to the end. On the last page the reader is left panting for more, yet he will have to wait for the sequel.
This novel kept me on the edge of my seat and I'm looking forward to sharing it with my students in the weeks to come.

Format: Hardcover
I'm a children's librarian so I get to see a lot of children's books pass through my hallowed public library doors. Lots. But a person can't see everything so once in a while I like to traipse down to my friendly neighborhood bookstore to see what's on the shelves. I skip into the children's section, peruse the titles there, skim one or two just to see if I'd like to read them later, and that's it. End of story. Normally. This past week-end I skipped in as per usual and skimmed the titles of the new fall releases. A new P.E. Kerr... something by F.E. Higgins... and a new Margaret Peterson Haddix. Now there's a treat! I'm not the biggest Haddix fan in the world but I'm rather fond of her style. Kids love her Shadow Children series and Running Out of Time was a fun concept (so much so that perhaps director M. Night Shymalan thought so too). But I've never really fallen for a Haddix novel, you know? The writing just usually doesn't do it for me. Maybe it's the tone or the content or something, but I wasn't really digging the Haddix. Until now. You see, as I sat down in the bookstore's café to read a chapter I found myself sucked into the story. Does it contain some lickety split action sequences and leaps that stretch at my adult credulity? Sure. But I also feel that this may be some of Haddix's best work.Read more ›

My husband and I both read this book after becoming intrigued by a book review that we encountered. We were not disappointed. Yes, the book was written for children but don't be put off by that. It was fast-paced and engaging from beginning to end. We are impatiently waiting for the next of the series.

Try as hard as I could my daughter just never loved reading. I would buy books, take her to book stores - nothing.
There was a book fair at school and she bought this book. She started reading it on the busride home. She has not put it down since. She is loving the suspense of the story. And for the first time in her life when I called her she replied"Just one more chapter?" That is something I will never forget.

I can't thank the author enough. She has turned my non-reader into a reader. And I am buying her other books as well. Thank you for opening the world of reading to my daughter.

Format: Hardcover
Book three in the Mickey Bolitar series of YP books, although this book gives away the main details of the other two books so you could read it as a standalone. However being it gives away those details it would spoil those plots for you if after this you decide to check them out so I'd recommend starting with book one Shelter. I must admit halfway through the book I was getting a bit over the whole bat lady thing and the butterfly logo and was thinking why can't Coben think of something else for his main character and sidekicks spoon and Ema to interact with, but then it all came together at the end. I still don't know why the old lady can't just answer Mickey's questions instead of talking in riddles, but working out what's going on is what this group of teens has to do.

In book three Ema is worried about her online boyfriend who has stopped communicating with her. Mickey didn't even know she existed and thinks it's just someone playing a cruel trick on her but Spoon from his hospital bed convinces him that if Ema is concerned, they should do all they can as her friends. Meanwhile life on the basketball court is looking to be a lot easier with some major hurdles out of the way, but there's pressure from teammates to use his own expertise to bring at least one of those hurdles back.
