After a mysterious appearance by Charles Lindbergh, it’s up to Jonah to save his town in the seventh book of the New York Times bestselling The Missing series, which Kirkus Reviews calls “plenty of fun and great for history teachers as well.”
It’s morning as usual at the Skidmore household—until Charles Lindbergh, the famous historical pilot, appears in their living room. Jonah can hardly believe his eyes—and then Lindbergh grabs Katherine and vanishes again. And that’s not all. Chip, Andrea, and all the other children from the plane have disappeared too. And worst of all, Jonah’s parents and all the other adults in his town have de-aged into children.
Jonah is the only one left, and the only one who can save everyone. With the help of de-aged JB and Angela, he has to collect the clues. And they lead directly back to Gary and Hodge, and a terrible plot that could mean the end of everything Jonah has ever loved. Can Jonah put the pieces together before time runs out?
isn’t that Ming Reynolds? Jonah thought. She was another missing child from history, but Jonah hadn’t seen her since the last time he’d been in this cave. On the screen Ming was sitting at a table dropping blueberries into a bowl of yogurt. And then a moment later, Ming vanished, just like Chip. The table and the bowl and the yogurt and blueberries were still there, but not Ming. All across the monitors, kids were vanishing. There was Brendan . . . and now he was gone. Emily . . . gone.
Jonah found himself directly face to face with Charles Lindbergh for the first time since he’d seen the man in the Skidmores’ living room. For the first time since Lindbergh had kidnapped Katherine. Don’t punch him in the gut, Jonah told himself. Don’t kick him in the shins. Remember—he’s your father. He’s been searching for you for ages. And . . . maybe you need to get him on your side so he’ll help you save Katherine from Gary and Hodge? Jonah sneaked one glance toward baby Katherine to see
up to the gate now,” Hodge said. “Colonel Lindbergh, it’s a shame we don’t have time to show you around the entire airport, to see the state of aviation nearly a century after you started flying. Maybe another time? Or maybe you’ll be more interested in the aviation in my time period, in the future?” Still carrying baby Katherine, he shoved open the door out into the main part of the terminal. Lindbergh followed close behind. Gary held Jonah back from the door as it slammed shut. “Is the plane
and Hodge weren’t going to take him back to 1932, what were they planning to do with him? And Katherine? Jonah wondered, because it was a little too terrifying to think about himself. What are they going to do with Katherine? Gary and Hodge had given such specific instructions to Lindbergh, to have him age her up and then turn her back into a baby. It had definitely not been random. What could they still be planning? Hadn’t they already ruined enough lives? Jonah reached out and touched
she’d seen, and it had taken thirteen years before she’d gotten anything resembling an answer. She’d also had to risk her life to help Jonah and Katherine and the other kids. The phone rang. And rang. And rang. “Crud!” Jonah exclaimed, hanging up. Next he tried calling his friend Chip. Chip hadn’t been on as many time-travel trips as Jonah, but in Chip’s original identity—which he at least knew, and had relived part of—he’d been a king of England in the Middle Ages.
