Jonah was adopted when he was a child, but he never minded. His parents were very open with him about it. He and his friend were playing basketball when Jonah received a mysterious letter without a return address. He thought it was a prank letter. Then, he found out that Chip, his friend, received one also. Chip asked his parents if he was adopted as well, and they tell him he was. Now, Jonah and Chip are out to find who is sending them the mysterious letters. However, they discover a plot that they must unravel before it is too late.

Margaret Peterson Haddix has written another wonderful book. It kept me up all night; I couldnt put it down until I had finished it! The characters were very well thought out and each had their own distinct personality and thoughts. The plot was engaging and mysterious. The ending was a little abrupt. But, it made me want to read the next one even more! I cant wait for another Haddix masterpiece in The Missing series!
