Found (The Missing, Book 1)

Found is the first book of The Missing series. It is a pretty long book, but I really liked it and I think that most people who read it would enjoy it too. I recommend it for people 9 years old and older. I really liked this book because it just slowly presented every event at a very good pace and added a lot of suspense. I just couldn’t close this book until I finished it. My favorite part was when Jonah and Chip, the main characters, used their skills to make everyone of the other children trapped with them fight the evildoers, Gary and Hodge, and succeed.

However, even though this book is great, I think that it would have been better if it had made the battle at the library against the evildoers and the battle in the cave a little bit longer and more detailed. Also, I think that the author could have added more description of the characters and setting. It also could have made the less exciting parts (like when they search for witnesses) a little bit more exciting like adding a little drama. However, this book was great as a whole it gave lots of excitement. I think that this book was great for people who love science fiction, time travel lovers, adoptees, technology people, and last of all, adventure fans. But really, this book is just great for any reader or bookworm. I look forward to reading the next of this series: Sent, and I give to this great book 4 stars out of 5. This is a great book! =)
