About the book
I really like this book. It is a bit weirder than most other books that I have read but it is still a good read. The situations and the characters are also not as detailed as many other books, which is kind of a let down since it makes it hard to imagine what the characters look like. So far, the plot is well planned, although the section that I am at is kind of slow-paced, whereas the beginning was very fast-paced. The beginning was a lot better than most other books since other books have slow and boring beginnings. Also, the action usually takes a few chapters to start, but in this book, it started right away. This book is also about a topic that I have never read about before. It is about some "missing" orphans.
So far, I think that this is one of the best books that I have ever read. The story is very weird and unusual, which I think is good, since most other action books follow pretty much the same plot. I can already predict that the two adopted children were part of the babies on the mysterious plane. It still makes me wonder when I think about the plane. How could it have gotten there off of radar? Where did it come from? Where was the pilot? What was with the weird symbol on the side of it? What was with all of the babies? So many questions that I wish could be answered. I guess that I'll have to wait for that.
I kind of agree with the actions of the characters. I feel that Jonah is acting too old for his age and Chip, a little too young. Chip kind of freaked out when he found out that he was adopted, which I think is fine, but he went a little overboard. I don't agree with Chip's father. I think Chip should know whatever he wants to know about the topic, since it is about his life. I think it was smart of them to dig through his father's safe to find his birth certificate. He had a right to know. I would have done the same as him and called the number on the post-it. The only thing that I would have done without the help of Jonah is to stop the call when the FBI answered, since it would have struck me as weird and I wouldn't want to be in legal trouble. Also, I think it was right of Jonah to ask his parents about the topic, even though they didn't give much information. I hope that they end up calling the adoption office after all.
The only thing is that I can't find many ways that I can relate this to my life. I like mystery and adventure books so that may be one way. I'm not adopted and I was never flown on some strange plane when I was a baby, so that is out of the picture. I do like adventures, even though this is one that I would never have attempted. I don't even know anyone that was adopted, so there aren't many ways that this can relate to my life at all.
