MMGM: Capture the Flag

Oh, boy, do I have a fun book to recommend to you today!

Anna, José, and Henry are complete strangers with more in common than they realize. Snowed in together at a chaotic Washington, DC, airport, they encounter a mysterious tattooed man, a flamboyant politician, and a rambunctious poodle named for an ancient king. Even stranger, news stations everywhere have announced that the famous flag that inspired “The Star-Spangled Banner” has been stolen! Anna, certain that the culprits must be snowed in too, recruits Henry and José to help catch the thieves and bring them to justice.

But when accusations start flying, they soon realize there’s more than justice at stake. As the snow starts clearing, Anna, José, and Henry find themselves in a race against time (and the weather!) to prevent the loss of an American treasure.

My whiskers are tingling, just reading that description of Capture the Flag by Kate Messner. This is the kind of story I LOVE. Smart kids. Secret societies. Behind the scenes inner workings of an airport. All mixed together with the history of an irreplaceable American artifact.

Run, don’t walk, to get your paws on a copy of Capture the Flag. Trust me, you won’t be able to put it down!
