Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5–8—This book begins where Found (S & S, 2008) left off: Chip, Jonah, Katherine, and Alex are falling through time. They find themselves in 1483 in the Tower of London where the famously imprisoned princes, Edward and Richard, are fearfully awaiting their fates. As was revealed at the end of Found, Chip and Alex are really Edward and Richard, spirited away to our current century by time travelers in a misguided attempt to save their lives. The four fumble through attempts to figure out how to save them from their historically presumed deaths. While the children know next to nothing about the real princes, they have a firsthand chance to watch history in the making, all the while hoping that they won't alter time too much and end up getting the princes killed anyway. Haddix ratchets up the tension here, letting it mount in moment-by-moment near misses and escapes. The kids' futuristic helper, JB, tries his best to keep them from causing too much damage to time, showing himself to be on their side. Full of interesting historical details, but muddy with the science of time travel, this is a fantastic follow-up to the first book. Haddix even poses an interesting "what if" about the real fates of Edward and Richard. By the book's end, Jonah still doesn't know who he really is, and readers will be just as anxious as he is to find out. The next installment can't come quickly enough.—Necia Blundy, Marlborough Public Library, MA END

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.

Cannot wait to start the next book!

The chapters in this book end in ways were you can't stop reading, cliffhanger that's what there called.

My two sons are reading this book series and they really love it.

Format: Hardcover
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 with Katherine and his best friend, Chip, they discover an amazing secret: Chip and Jonah are part of a group of kids who have been stolen out of time --- and their kidnapping has damaged history. 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 first two to leave are Chip and Alex. But refusing to let them go alone, Jonah and Katherine grab on at the last second, and they all hurtle back through time to the year 1483.

With the use of a tool called an Elucidator, the foursome can keep in contact with J.B., who agrees to give Jonah and Katherine a chance to help Chip and Alex. They soon find out that Chip and Alex are not only brothers, but also the king and prince of England. That isn't quite as glamorous as it first seems, though, as someone is out to kill them and take over the crown.

The kids struggle to fit in to the 15th century, a time with no fast food, cell phones, or modern plumbing. If they make one little mistake, they could destroy history even more.

Margaret Petersen Haddix doesn't disappoint in this sequel to FOUND. The children are being returned to their proper time periods so that time is not damaged. Chip finds out that he is the king of England, and Alex is his younger brother. Richard III (their uncle and antagonist in this story and in history) has aspirations for the crown. The historical facts, as well as some of the conjecture, make this a fascinating read. Find out if Chip really rules as Edward V, and what becomes of his amibitous uncle who plots Chip's demise. Hint : As William Shakespeare quoted Richard III - "A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse." (or something close to that). Great read.

I really enjoyed the first book, but this one is no where close to the quality of the first one. The book is very slow and there is no exciting part.

Haddix has done it again. Her premise keeps me thinking as she moves the reader through an historical event. She teaches as she writes and makes her reader keep up with her. As a teacher, I appreciate her approach to historical events and how she makes a time capsule in her books to bring the reader back in history. I think this book is appropriate to readers in the upper elementary grades and higher.

Format: Paperback
This book was just annoying, much more so than the previous book, Missing.

The author seems worried that the reader won't be smart enough to follow the plot, and so she continually, repetitively explains it to us. Nothing happens in the book without Jonah wondering why it happened and then explaining it to himself, slowing the pace of the story way down and leaving the impression that Jonah's perhaps not the sharpest tool in the shed. Jonah is also continually shuddering and shivering, leaving the reader wishing he'd toughen up a little.

If, like me, you already knew quite a bit about the "Princes in the Tower", much of what's supposed to be suspenseful in the book becomes considerably less so. Since this is a fairly well-known historical incident, it's a mistake for the author to assume that readers won't know anything about it and will be completely astonished. The history could have been explained with a much lighter touch, accommodating those who don't know it without slowing the story down so much.

All that said, the difference between 21st century thought and 15th century thought is very well done (I think the reviewer who called this a Christian bias was mistaken: it's just historical accuracy). And I only noticed one error in the rendering of early modern English, a welcome change from the wholesale garbling of it that one usually sees.

This is the sequel to Found. I'm not a particular fan of historical fiction and I prefer urban to medieval fantasy generally. But Haddix scores a home run with this novel and series. Designed for an older audience than the Magic Treehouse series and just significantly better in so many ways (nothing against the Treehouse series, which I also enjoy). I can't wait to read it again with my daughter. A great read!

Format: Hardcover
When I first started reading this book, I had a little problem getting through the first few slow chapters. But once I gave it a chance I was floored. This book with Jonah and Chip has brought a whole new meaning to time travel. From the tracers that inhabit times broken flow, to Kathrine (Jonah's sister) falling in love with Chip (the King of England no less!!!)
I was also floored by how well she is able to put things, especially time itself. How even though time is moving, how Jonah and his "bud" A.J. could just sit and watch how things went on with his friend Chip. (Spoiler sorry). This is an excellent story, well worth the read and another that I have added to our library. ^_^
