We follow Elle Burton in her efforts to find her kidnapped baby brother, JJ. As a newly designated guide, sworn to protect the children of Earth, she’s desperate to find her brother and get him back. Elle teams up with the winged warriors from the dimension of Fiori to save him, but JJ isn’t the only one in danger. What will Elle sacrifice to bring her brother home?
“Missing” is an engaging coming of age fantasy for middle-grade readers to adults who love an action-packed adventure. Elle Burton is determined to find her kidnapped brother, but she what she finds is pure evil.
The author has blended the magic of a fairy tale with the contemporary realities of the world today’s youth inhabit. She’s built a new reality through the journey of a young girl who exhibits both compassion and jaw-dropping courage in her quest to fulfill an ancient prophecy. “Missing” is the second book in the “Lessons from Fiori” series.
In Book One, “Elle Burton and the Reflective Portals”, Elle Burton is thrust into another dimension while her own world becomes vastly different from the world she thought she grew up in. The Earth is teeming with winged creatures who breathe the first breath of life into a newborn human child to ensure them a kind heart. These fairy-like creatures stay with children on Earth to help protect them until their eighth birthday. On that day, the Fiorins disappear as quickly as the child’s memory of them does.
The author has provided a female role model who is flawed, but who always strives to show compassion to friends and family.
The leader of the Fiorins entrusts Elle with a magic pendant. Only the child of the prophecy in the ancient scrolls can unleash the magic. Boys will laugh at the antics of the class bully and cheer for the Fiorin warrior. Girls will cheer on their newest heroine in book two of the “Lessons from Fiori” series.

The story of Missing is a thrilling, enchanting one as fanger is aloof always as well as monsters. As well as this, we have suspense, heroes, heroines, joy, humorous moments, friends and family and so much more! The author of this wonderful novel, Peggy M. McAloon manages to blend all these themes perfectly together which in turn makes a brilliant fantasy novel.
McAloon, in my opinion, is a master storyteller and a true literary talent. She deals with sensitive themes in her book in a delicate, touching manner. Subjects such as bullying, abuse, grief and much more. These are all themes which are poignant, and I loved how she has included them in a children’s book story.
