Found FOUND, a wonderful children's mystery series
Margaret Peterson Haddix has done it again: written an exciting book for children in the beginning of a series w/ the book FOUND. Elementary school librarians voted it a contestant for the 15 nominated books on the Sunshine State Young Readers Awards book list for 2009-10 in the state of Florida. The first two pages grab your attention as a plane w/ unusual company name lands w/o showing up on the radar. The attendant boards the plane to find that it has no pilots & only babies in the seats. The scene changes as two boys meet in the neighborhood & become friends. Though only one is adopted, both receive an anonemous letter in the mail stating "You are one of the missing." In their attempts to find out what the letters mean, the other child finds out that he, too, was adopted. Along w/ the secret papers of his adoption, there is a name & phone # of an FBI agent who may have some answers as to where he came from, but that lead them on an exciting adventure. Although written for children ages 9-12, this book is intriguing & a good read!

I loved it
Margret Petterson Haddix is an absolutly amazing writer. I think this book is approite for any reader. It always keeps you on your toes and keeps you intrested. It does leave you on a cliff hanger, but makes you want to read the next book.

I purchased this book for my daughter to complete the required summer reading for entering 6th grade. I chose to read it to find out if it was truely a good book. Wow! It was great! I read it in 3 days, would have completed in 1 if I had the time to. I can't wait to read the next book in the series...She is reading it now (not as quickly).
