After a mysterious appearance by Charles Lindbergh, it’s up to Jonah to save his town in the seventh book of the New York Times bestselling The Missing series, which Kirkus Reviews calls “plenty of fun and great for history teachers as well.”
It’s morning as usual at the Skidmore household—until Charles Lindbergh, the famous historical pilot, appears in their living room. Jonah can hardly believe his eyes—and then Lindbergh grabs Katherine and vanishes again. And that’s not all. Chip, Andrea, and all the other children from the plane have disappeared too. And worst of all, Jonah’s parents and all the other adults in his town have de-aged into children.
Jonah is the only one left, and the only one who can save everyone. With the help of de-aged JB and Angela, he has to collect the clues. And they lead directly back to Gary and Hodge, and a terrible plot that could mean the end of everything Jonah has ever loved. Can Jonah put the pieces together before time runs out?

This is a lot easier than chin-ups, Jonah thought, cautiously starting to stand up. The wing was right above the plane’s window—he didn’t want to bang his head. Jonah edged up high enough that his face drew even with the bottom of the window ledge. Now he could see into the fuselage. By the light of Lindbergh’s glowing tracer,

No—that was the airline Angela worked for now. Today. Right at this moment. He was in the time he still thought of as thirteen years ago. He was at the airport on the one and only day Angela worked for SkyTrails. And Angela was the person he needed to see and talk to sometime within the next twenty-three minutes. It’s probably
could feel the prod of the needle—now behind his back, the tip just touching the skin through his pullover sweater. “As you see, your son did think like a Lindbergh—he figured out to come here to meet you,” Hodge was saying. “He just didn’t realize that we had complete tracking capacity on that Elucidator. Or that you still have a noble duty to carry out before the two of you can be reunited for good.” “Dad,” Jonah said, and that sounded completely wrong. He started over again. “I mean,
CAN, the Elucidator said, and now its glow seemed soothing. NOT EVERYTHING THAT GARY AND HODGE PLANNED HAS HAPPENED. YET. Jonah looked around frantically. “We’ve got to stop Charles Lindbergh,” he said. “Send us back now. Send us to—” “Don’t!” Angela yelled, yanking the Elucidator out of Jonah’s hand. “We need a plan first, remember? How are we going to stop Charles Lindbergh?” Jonah would have been willing to make it up as he floated through time. “I’ll tell Charles Lindbergh I’m not really

There wasn’t anyone who could help him. “What should we do now, Kath—?” Jonah started to say automatically, because with just about every single time-travel dilemma he’d ever faced, he’d had Katherine right there beside him, helping out. In practically the only time-travel moments he’d had without Katherine, he’d had Albert Einstein’s wife at his side, and she was pretty smart herself. This time Jonah was on his own.
