Thirteen years ago a very mysterious event occurred at an airport. Suddenly, a jet plane materialized at a gateway. Aboard the plane there were thirty-six babies. No crew. No adults. This bizarre occurence was covered-up by the government, which secretly placed the babies in adoptive homes. Their new parents did not know that there was anything unusual about their children.
Jonah was one of these adopted children. Now a seventh grader, Jonah began receiving strange messages in the mail. The first one read, “You are one of the missing.” The second message was more threatening, “Beware! They’re coming back to get you.” Jonah’s friend Chip who didn’t know he was adopted until now, also receives the messages. Chip, Jonah, and Jonah’s sister Katherine decide to investigate and they locate more thirteen-year-old adopted children right in their area. Events soon turn terrifying.
This is a great beginning to a new series by Margaret Peterson Haddix, author of Among the Hidden and many other popular novels.
