Sent by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Just finished Sent today and I loved it. The sequel to Found in the new series The Missing is every bit as good as I had hoped it would be. Now you know I don't believe in spoilers (read the book yourself, I say!) but I will tell you that even if you haven't read Found you will enjoy it--maybe a bit less than if you read the first one, but enjoy it, nonetheless.

Jonah and Katherine are siblings in today's world. When last we saw them, they had just discovered that Jonah (and several other kids) were actually children that had been abducted from other times and places and placed in this century. In Sent, they, along with their new friends Chip and Alex, go back in time to the 1400's a time where being a royal was dangerous to one's health as people double crossed even (or especially!) family members in order to seek more power and wealth.
OOH, dontcha just love it! Well, what are you waiting for? Go to your library and get it. Pop the popcorn. Pour the cherry coke. And get ready for a lovely adventure.

Saw your post on LM_Net. I'm a big Haddix fan, but I haven't started this series yet. I'll look into it!
