Found--Book Review

I see it, I see it. :P

I suppose I could do a book review again.

I know, I haven't done one in like forever.

But, I DO have a REALLY good book to do a review about. :)

I'm getting to read this book with a book club that I'm apart of. I'm in the third book. Great series!! :)

Name: Found
Series: The Missing
Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix
Categories: Time Travel, middle school, adoption

Summary: Jonah has always known that he was adopted, but it's never bothered him. Until now, since he's been receiving mysterious letters. He's sure they're just a prank. But when his best friend Chip reveals that he's getting the same letters, they realize it's more than it seems...

Sorry, I can't really reveal any more. :P

Good points: a draw-you-in on-the-edge-of-your-seat plot, which it has to be for impatient readers like myself. Strong characters. Pretty real-life about how they think about things. Very well-done plot, and it keeps you guessing about what on earth is going on.

Bad points: of course since they're in middle school there's the boy/girl issue. (Which stinks. Just saying.) But it's not that bad. Just boyfriend/girlfriend, and it gets forgotten sometimes. It's still a pretty big issue, though, and it kind of bugs me. There was also a very, very mind swear word, and the person wasn't even saying it, they were quoting somebody else. (You guys probably wouldn't think it's a swear word, but for me, it is.)

All in all, though, I'd give this book a rating of..............


Yup. It's a good book.

So, if you've heard of it, go check it out and read it!!!!

I shall warn you, though, that if you're at the library and they have the second book, GET THE SECOND BOOK WHATEVER YOU DO. It ends off like right in a spot where you want it to keep on going. So, yeah, get the second book.

I'm the third book, and they're still going good!!!!!

Until later,

And, by the way, tell me if you like this book review. If you guys don't like it, tell me anyway and I won't do anymore of these posts. Just trying to make these as interesting as possible!!!! :) And thanks to new follower EJ!!! Love you guys. <3

P.S. Funny story before we leave: when I first got the book, for a second I thought that "Haddix" was apart of the name. :P

  3. Dear Storyteller,
    I've only just recently found your blog
    by complete accident I'm a teenage Christian girl and I love to write, draw, and
    read so I was positively ecstatic when I found this blog
    I've written tons of stuff but sadly have never finished any. :(
    My favorite kind of books are fantasy, mystery, and time travel a book I'd recommend is Nick of Time excellent!

    a picture to copy and when I clicked on

    just awesome!
    I love your stories they're lots better than mine
    I don't really purposely show my stories to anyone but

    and I need to pick one and finish it I think I will
    thanks for the encouragement you're a great inspiration.
