Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix

Genre: Fantasy, science fiction

Series: The Missing

Number in series: 2nd

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5

Type: Fiction

Number of pages: 313

Time period: 1400s (1483, to be exact)

My overall opinion: Wow. There are endless possibilities for this series. See, it’s all these children who died or disappeared…but time travelers from the future went back and rescued them. Now, those time travelers have figured out that that was a bad idea and are returning the kids to the centuries and exact times from which they were plucked to “fix time.” But of course, it’s not as “simple” as it sounds. There are over 30 kids in all, so see what I meant about endless possibilities? Anyway, this particular book is about some kids who are returned to 1483. It turns out that the two who were supposed to go back (two went by accident) are Edward V and his brother Richard as kids – in history, they just disappeared. Naturally, it makes for a riveting historical fiction almost type of book. Definitely recommending this series so far!

I am glad you liked this one. I liked her Among the Hidden series so much better than this.
