Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-9 This volume picks up immediately where book two left off, with Jonah, Katherine, and Andrea going to the time period when Andrea was kidnapped. She is Virginia Dare, the first English child to be born in the ill-fated Roanoke Colony. During their time journey, the Elucidator is lost, and the children arrive not certain as to where or when they are. Jonah pieces together that Andrea deliberately lost the Elucidator, and she admits she was following the directive of a mystery man who promised that she could stop her 21st-century parents from dying in a car crash if she did what he said. Unsure of what they've been sent back to do, the children decide to try to find the inhabitants of the colony. Along the way they save the life of Andrea's 16th-century grandfather, and she feels more and more that she is supposed to stay with him. Familiarity with the first two books is a must, and even then, this story is somewhat confusing. The integration of background material is not consistently clear, so unless readers have studied the history of the Roanoke Colony, they may not understand what is going on. This plodding novel is plot driven there is little character development and there are no new hints as to Jonah's historical identity. Readers are told that the group will next go into the 17th century, but they may not have the patience to follow. Cheri Dobbs, Detroit Country Day Middle School, Beverly Hills, MI

From Booklist

Thirteen-year-old Jonah and his younger sister Katherine are sent back in time to try to help Virginia Dare, but their task is complicated when two additional lost-in-time children suddenly appear, and they discover that someone is tampering with the mission. Haddix skillfully weaves her story around a popular historical mystery (the Roanoke Colony), and the result will please returning readers of the Missing series; new ones can also plunge right in, although a few references will go over their heads. An author’s note provides the few facts known about Roanoke and its missing settlers. Grades 5-8. --Cindy Welch

More About the Author

I grew up on a farm outside Washington Court House, Ohio. As a kid, I liked to read a lot, and was also involved in 4-H, various bands and choirs (I played flute and piano), church youth group, the school newspaper, and a quiz-bowl type team. I was pretty disastrous as an athlete, although I did run track one year in high school. After graduating from Miami University (of Ohio), I worked as a newspaper copy editor in Fort Wayne, Indiana; a newspaper reporter in Indianapolis; and a part-time community college instructor and freelance writer in Danville, Illinois, before my first book was published. I've moved around a lot as an adult, having also lived in Luxembourg (during a college semester abroad) and in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania. Several years ago, I moved back to Ohio with my husband and kids; we now live in Columbus, Ohio. My husband trains investigative journalists, and my kids are in high school, so there's always a lot going on around our house.

I have been waiting for this book ever since I finished reading Found and Sent, and Sabotaged is definitely the best of the three that have come out so far. The story focuses a lot on the Roanoke colony, so I had to do a little bit of background research to fully understand the story and what was going on. Andrea, the girl that Jonah and Katherine have been asked to rescue, is now, by far, my favorite characters in the entire series. The story gets a lot more complex in the third book, with so many different problems with time happening at the same time, but I found it to be a great book overall. A definite must-read if you've read Found and Sent.

SABOTAGED: The Missing, Book 3
by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
ISBN: 9781416954248
Ages 8-12
384 pages

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thirteen-year-old Jonah Skidmore feels like an average kid, 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 feels normal. But then he receives a letter with six simple words, "YOU ARE ONE OF THE MISSING," and his life flips upside down and way out of control.

After some investigating, Jonah and Katherine discover an amazing secret: Jonah is part of a group of kids who have been stolen out of time. J.B., a time officer, has rounded up the 36 children and is determined to set history straight by sending them back to "when" they belong. The siblings agree to help the others realign time, signing up for the most incredible adventures of their lives.

Jonah and Katherine are about ready to set off for their second mission through time. But unlike the first one, when they jumped in unexpectedly and ended up in 1483 completely unprepared, this time they get a debriefing first. This mission involves Andrea, who is really Virginia Dare, the first European born in the New World. She, like the other kidnapped children, was stolen out of time, and home for her is the Lost Colony of Roanoke in the late 16th century.

I started out reading the Shadow Children series and was hooked! Margaret Peterson Haddix became my favorite author! In class, we began the Missing series Book 1, Found. I knew I would love these too! I bought the next book in the series, Sent and read that book in days; I was hooked. When I found the third book in the series, Sabatoged, I was so excited! I bought it and read it in just two days! I could not put it down.
If you like history and mystery, this book is perfect for you. Jonah and Katherine must help Andrea (actually Virginia Dare, Roanoake) fix time. After meeting Indians and her grandfather, John White, Margaret Peterson Haddix gives and alternate ending to what could have to happened to the Roanaoke Colony after John White left to Europe for supplies. She ends with a cliff hanger leading to her next book (hopefully) which left me on the edge of my seat. This book uses true facts about what history has recorded but also gives other "facts" that aren't true but makes you think "that could have happened." I would reccomend this book to everyone who has ever read one of Margaret Peterson Haddix's books or anyone loking for a good book. I truly loved this book!

Haddix has pulled it off again. This is the 3rd installment of the Missing series and once again she did a great job. We can't wait to see what she comes up with next. As with the other books in this series she has researched actual historical events to use as a basis for the storyline. As a parent I believe this series does a great job of introducing children to historical events in a way that is fun and engaging.

Format: Hardcover
Imagine that you are an adopted child, and you find out that you are actually the first baby ever born in America because you were sent forward in time. You are from the mysterious missing colony of Roanoke. This is what happens to one of the characters in this riveting novel. It is about three children who are sent back in time to return one girl to her rightful place as Virginia Dare. They lose contact with the man who sent them there and have to fend for themselves, while solving the mystery of Roanoke and finding Virginia Dare. This book includes time travel, mysteries, enemies, betrayals, and also includes a hint of history. This book was pretty enjoyable, but left me with a few unanswered questions. I hope that Haddix is writing another book for this series, because I have loved all three books. I would recommend this book if you have enjoyed Haddix's other books, such as Double Identity. This is truly an enjoyable story, and I would suggest it to anyone who enjoys science fiction books. AP
