THE MISSING: TORN Book 4
By: Margaret Peterson Haddix
Theme: Life is easy compared to many years ago.
Torn takes place in James Bay back in 1611. Jonah (age 13) and Katherine (age 12) and JB (age 13) have found out that they were kidnapped babies snatched out of time. They are trying to figure when and where they belong. JB is stuck with other friends in the year 1600 and Jonah and Katherine are trying to reach them. While searching, Jonah and Katherine find themselves on a ship in Canada being sailed by the explorer Henry Hudson. Henry is looking for his son, John, who is also one of the missing kids of time.
In their adventure to find the missing kids, they are split in time travel. They are torn between what current history is and what is in the past. They find what they believe is the Northwest Passage but they are unsure. Will this new finding replace what they know in history or will it be the end of time.
This symbol represent Jonah and Katherine finding the Northwest Passage on their journey.
This picture shows what the rough waters of James Bay looked like.
There were those words again: "Northwest Passage." Some old memory stirred at the back of Jonah's mind. Something from 5th grade social studies, something Mrs. Rorshas had droned on and on about, with her talent for making even the more interesting subjects boring.
"Oh, Jonah, haven't you been making your own choices all along? " Second asked. "What choice do you want that you don't have?"
"The choice to go home!" Jonah replied.
