Current Read

Sent by Margaret Peterson Haddix

I am enjoying the newest series called: The Missing by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It is exploring time travel and missing children throughout history. Sent is the book that follows Found in the series. It is about Edward the Fifth and his brother Richard from the late 1400's in England. The characters go back in time to figure out what happened. The book was hard to put down. I also enjoyed the author's summary of her research at the end of the book. It is a great read for the middle grades. I believe it will also spark the reader's interest in the history of the late 1400's. I would suggest reading Found, which is the first book in the series, first. Happy Reading!

I'm curious to see what direction the third book will take. Time traveling is a good excuse to have books be radically different!

Me too! I have it on reserve at the library but I think I am 34th on the list.
