Sent (The Missing Series: Book 2) by Margaret Peterson Haddix (Simon and Schuster, 2009)

Traveling over five hundred years into the past, Jonah and Katherine are determined to save their friends, Chip and Alex.  After learning that their friends are really the two princes from the Tower of London in 15th century England, Jonah and Katherine must endure unfamiliar surroundings, Middle English, and the seemingly villainous, Richard III.  Fortunately, JB, an ally from the future, is helping them accomplish this difficult task without altering the space-time continuum.  Packed with moments of tension and challenges, Haddix expertly weaves historical elements and the present together.  Reading the first book in this series will certainly be helpful in providing background information, but the well-crafted plot driven by vivid characters makes this second book an enjoyable read.
