    Great

    Sought by Margaret Peterson Haddix is the newest addition to the Missing Series. This ebook tells the story of Daniella McCarthy who receives a mysterious call one morning. The boy calling asks her if she is moving and if she is adopted. Daniella freaks out at first but then calls him back, after she finds out that she is moving to Liston, Ohio... the place the boy asked if she was moving to. The boys who she talked to the second time don't call back. Three weeks later, Daniella gets a call from Gavin, another mysterious person, and he tells her that they are related. He also said that if she wants answers she has to talk to two boys once she moves. (Jonah skidmore and chip winston!). The short story ends with Daniella walking to Jonah's house in Ohio.

    Sought is a great short story that will have every Haddix fan wanting Risked to come out even sooner. I will recommend this ebook to any fan of The Missing Series.

    Thanks for reading this long review. I hope you found this helpful!

    good read

    this is not what i thought it would be. i thought it would be a full book. it is actually based on a conversation that chip and jonah have in the 1st book with one of the missing. still a good book but not it's own separate plot.

    I've met and hugged Margret Peterson Haddix!

    My school just had a visit with Margaret and she gave me a hug and a high five. Shannon Messenger did too!!! She is a very good writer and is amazing in real life!

    The Calm Before the Storm-24

    First of all, I want to thank everybody who gave me characters for my next story. If you want your character in my next story go to the calm before the storm res 2 and post your character's bio. I will use most of your characters. So make some good ones. Next part at Harry Potter book #1. This part will be in Merida's pov. ••••••••••••••••• That evil voice echoed thoughout the whole woods. The voice finally showed itself. It looked like a black cloud." Really?! A cloud.", I said." Don't be ignorant. I can destroy you easily. Now, show me what you can do, daughter of the Mist.", the evil cloud said. The cloud changed its form. It started to look.....humanoid. He streched out his hand and a sword appered in it. He pointed it at me. I rolled out of the way just in time. A mixture of lightning and black smoke shot out of the blade and right where I used to be, was a 5' hole." What tha–?!", I said." Yes! I am a child of Night, goddess of darkness! I AM the child of darkness! I am–?!" "I get it! Your a child of darkness. Geez!", I said. He looked at me with pure hatred," You will join your friends now, anoying one. I am quite tired of you." He pointed his sword at me again.' This is the end.', I thought. Out of nowhere, an eagle came swooping down and tackled ' the child of darkness'. He threw the eagle off of him and said," I will see you soon. Until then, good ridence." He vanished and didn't leave a trace. The eagle on the other hand was staring at me. It was very big. It might have been human size. Maybe even a little bigger." What did I ever do to you?", I asked it." Many things.", it said. I looked closely and the eagle flickered. The eagle shapeshifted and it changed into a girl. She had black hair and piercing blue eyes. Out of the bushes, jumped four more kids. One was a girl who was holding a bow. The others were boys who had weird looking swords." I'm Skyler, daughter of Jupiter." •••••••••• hope u liked this part. SEA
