Aurora MN Teens Talk Books: Margaret Peterson Haddix's "Missing" series

This page is set up for teens from Aurora, Minnesota to discuss books.  Conversation over the summer of 2014 will focus on Margaret Peterson Haddix's "Missing" series, though recommendations of and thoughts on other titles are welcome.  Please respect others; keep your comments courteous and your language clean.  You may also join the discussion on Facebook; the page is named "Aurora MN Teens Talk Books."

I found a trailer for the the first book, Found, here: http://www.haddixbooks.com/found_preview.html  If you're interested, request a copy through Interlibrary Loan and join in the discussion!  Why do you think she chose to start the book where she did?
