Excerpt:

"It wasn't there. Then it was. Later, that was how Angela dupre would describe the airplane over and over again to the investigators until she was told to never speak of it again. But when she first saw the plane that night, she wasn't thinking about mysteries or secrets. She was wondering how many mistakes she could make without getting fired, how many questions she dared ask before her supervisor, Monique, would explode, " That's it! You're too stupid to work at Sky Trails Air! Get out of here!" Angela had used a post-it note to write down the code for standby passengers who'd received a seat assignment at the last minute, and she'd stuck it to her computer screen. She knew she had. But somehow, between the flight arriving from Saint Louis and the one leaving for Chicago the post-it had vanished."

Review:
FOUND is the 1st book of Margaret Peterson's MISSING series I love the way Ms. Peterson gets the reader hooked to her story by using a lot of mystery and suspense. That is why most of her books are great she just has a nice way of getting readers to want to know what is going to happen next in the story, The setting of this story is in the 21st century so it let me relate to what some of the kids in the story did. This is a very science fictional story where many things that we don't see on a Normal basis happen like people disappearing out of thin air.

The story takes place in Linston Ohio the main characters are Jonah and his sister Katherine, and jonah's friend both friends get these weird letters that say we'll find you from someone and are very scared. They first think they are just being pranked but it's more than that when they try to find out who's sending them these letters weird things start happening. They start investigating and things like people disappear out of nowhere, and things start missing from where the kids placed them like someone is watching them and knows their every step. Everything is not what it seems and the kids don't know what to do.

The kids meet this women Angela Dupre that tells them about the weird things that are going on and she talks about the night of 36 babies aboard an airplane by themselves, and the airplane disappearing out of thin air. She tells them about how nobody believed her and how they thought she was crazy then they come to a conclusion of them being the babies on the airplane. They aren't so sure about this Angela lady and don't know if she can be trusted, but will they ever find out who's sending them the letters and how they're connected with all of this read the book and find out!! I think it's a great book and I recommend everyone to read.
