What a great page-turner! I loved this premise and can't wait for the next one in the series. Great for kids/ bad language, etc. Just an exciting science fiction story. Suspenseful throughout.

FOUND is a promising start to another Haddix sci-fi/speculative/dystopian series that will be sure to attract fans both old and new. The suspense is almost unbearable; the plot twists unpredictable, yet reasonable. The characters are less well developed than those in her previous books, and Jonah is occasionally a frustratingly cynical and denial-happy protagonist. But young readers may be able to overlook character deficiencies in light of the excitement. Classic Haddix goodness.

Grade 48Haddix's latest science fiction series starts off with a bang in this nail-biter. A plane arrives at an airline gate unnoticed by radar and most personnel. There are no flight attendants, no pilot, in fact no adults at all, but there are 36 passengerseach seat is inhabited by an infant. Thirteen years later in Ohio, teenage adoptees Jonah and his friend Chip begin receiving ominous messages declaring that they are among "the missing" and that someone is coming to find them. Frightened yet intrigued, the boys begin a search for their real identities with the help of Jonah's younger sister. Their search leads them to a discovery that strains credulity and leads them into danger greater than they ever imagined possible. The story is driven by an exciting plot rather than extensive character development, and the teens act independently of the adults, who appear as "bad guys" or are basically useless. If used in a classroom, the revelation of the babies' identities can be used to kick off a history lesson or two. This book's exciting premise and cliff-hanger ending will leave readers on the edge of their seats and begging for more.
