But the Missing series by Margaret Peterson Haddix is wonderful. Found is the first book, and Sent is the second. I believe there will be a third. I,Q: Independence Hall by Roland Smith is the first in a wonderful series, although I think it came out last year. If you have a girl, Boys Are Dogs by Leslie Margolis has not been able to stay on my shelves. I think a really terrific book for 4-5th grade and for any gender in 2009 would have to be Extra Credit by Andrew Clements. If I think of any more, I'll be sure to add to the list! :) Sign in to vote!
