Capture the Flag by Kate Messner

Dontcha love a book that references other books?  It’s the BEST!  Capture the Flag by Kate Messner does this and I love it.  One of the heroes in the story carries around his Harry Potter collection and often quotes from them.  Like so:

The boy held up a copy of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, whose pages appeared to be on the verge of spilling out all over the terminal.  The cover was worn and torn, loved to death like Anna’s copy of Harriet the Spy.  The boy grinned.  “This one’s my favorite.”


To be sure, I have well-loved books like that too.  Not a feeling you can replicate with an electronic book.  Or can you?

Anyway, I was SO excited to share my review with you that I made a video!

Like to see it?


Do you have a fave well-worn book? What is it?

Maybe Capture the Flag will be MINE!

I give this book 4 paws for positive multicultural characters in an interesting and totally believable setting.
