This high-interest, low-vocabulary novella is intended for adult basic education (ABE) and English as a Second Language (ESL) readers. Twelve-year-old Luc Caron sees two German planes shoot down a British plane in the skies over his village in northern France during WWI. He watches in horror as the pilot falls to his death. Luc carries the burden of being the only witness to the scene for years to come. The Greenwoods live in Canada. Their son, a pilot, has been missing for 11 years. In 1928, they receive a package from England containing a letter and three objects found at the site of the plane crash. How is the mystery of the missing pilot solved, bringing peace to Luc and to the pilots parents? Missing is based on a true story.
