Jonah’s new twin must time travel and face off against his siblings’ worst enemy in order to save the future—and his family—in the eighth and final book of the New York Times bestselling The Missing series, which Kirkus Reviews calls “plenty of fun and great for history teachers as well.”
After traveling through history multiple times and finding out his original identity, Jonah thought he’d fixed everything. But some of his actions left unexpected consequences. His parents—and many other adults—are still stuck as teenagers. And now Jonah has a new sibling, an identical twin brother named Jordan.

How can his annoying kid sister Katherine speak so expertly about time travel—and have people from the future treating her with respect? A few rash moves by Jordan send them all into the future—and into danger. What if he’s also the only one who can get them back to safety, once and for all?
Don’t mess with me. Probably the president of the United States had one just like it—if there was still a president of the United States. Mr. Rathbone raised one eyebrow, as if to say, Don’t waste my time. I know who you are. Get to the point. Jonah stopped so abruptly that Jordan and Katherine almost ran into him. Is Jonah secretly carrying some weapon I don’t know about? Jordan wondered. Something the wind didn’t pull away? Is he going to threaten this guy? Does he think he has time to do

And . . . I thought you’d be honored that I’m coming to the three of you to decide what should happen to this baby next.” “Seriously?” Jonah asked. He looked as disgusted as Katherine. “Now you’re going to act like you’re giving us a
really inside the screen. And he’d seen this kind of thing before, back in the time hollow he’d landed in with Mom, Dad, Katherine, and Jonah. It was easier to be fooled now that he was alone. “They just looked so real,” he mumbled. “It confused me.” He took a step back from the wall and peered toward the image of his parents. Now that he knew it was just an image, they seemed impossibly far away. “You say this is video? Why aren’t they moving?” Jordan asked. “They’re still alive, right?”
just known they were okay—she would have been really happy to hang out with the Munchkins and all, and enjoy Oz. Not so much the Wicked Witch, though.” He cast a worried glance at Second. Was Second as much like the Wicked Witch of the West as Katherine and Jonah seemed to believe? Or was he more like the Wizard of Oz, someone hiding behind a fake image? What if Second was just trying to trick Jordan again, trying to get him to think that anything about his situation was like Dorothy’s in Oz?
he have been a hologram the last time I saw him too?” “He . . . he touched things,” Jordan said. “He carried . . .” “A hologram version of me as a baby?” Mr. Rathbone said scornfully. “A hologram man can carry a hologram baby. Neither has any substance.” Jordan wanted to keep protesting: But Second broke your golf club! He pressed buttons on the wall of the time hollow! He made my family vanish!
