48 Hour challenge - 2nd book (K)
**This post is dedicated to my just-graduated 5th grade class! **
I just finished Sent, the second in The Missing Series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. The first book, Found, was the last read aloud I shared with my class this past school year. It had most of them on the edge of their seats wondering what would happen next. I didn't get to finish Found before the end of the year, so it showed up on many of their summer reading lists.
They were then planning on reading Sent as soon as it was available to them. I'm telling them now that it is DEFINITELY worth it. I'm not a time traveler fan, but this book is just one adventure after another, so I truly enjoyed it.
Without ruining the plot, the castle on the front of the book is a great clue for the fact that some children will be time traveling back to the 15th century. What I enjoyed equally as much as the adventure in this book, is the historical component. I wound not have thought that from the first book, Found, but I predict there will be historical components in each of the remaining books in the series as well.
Sent is great reading! Coming out in August 2009! Be sure to check it out!
