I read Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It's about 2 boys and one of the boy's sister. One of the boys knows he's adopted. One boy, and later the other, gets a strange letter that they think is a prank about his being adopted. Once the other boy gets the same letter and his parents tell him he's adopted, he seeks answers.
As they try to find who their real parents were, they discover that there are more of them who got the letters. Also, they all live in the same general area and are all around the same age. What a coincidence. They are invited to a meeting about being adopted, and all but one girl shows up. The sister of one of the boys secretly takes her place. They find out that some people are not who they think they are, and that they are not even sure about who their selves are (and that's saying something because they're adopted).Now it's not as important to know who their parents were, or where they came from, but when they were born.
This book has lots of mystery and action. Also, the author of this book is a good writer, and I've read some of her other books."
