In this, the 7th novel in “The Missing” series, thirteen-year old Jonah has a series of adventures and time travel experiences that bring an end to the evil plot to kidnap famous children from the past and transport them into the present century.  Previously, Jonah helped other children identify their past; in this adventure he is led to believe he is the lost son of aviator, Charles Lindberg, and the reader learns some interesting facts about that famous kidnapping case of 1932, and about aviation generally in the early part of the 20th century when Lindberg made his famous transatlantic flight in 1927.  Although part of a series, Haddix provides enough background on characters and previous plots that this book can stand alone.  At times, Haddix’ interpretation and theories about time travel become confusing and slow the pace, but good readers will be able to work out the plot twists and enjoy the suspense as good conquers the evil forces.
