Capture the Flag by Kate Messner

When the original Star Spangled Banner is stolen, seventh-graders Anne, José, and Henry, all descendants of the Silver Jaguar Society, pursue suspects on airport carts and through baggage handling tunnels while stranded at a Washington, D.C., airport during a snowstorm.


Capture the Flag was really good. I haven’t read anything else like it. It was interesting, but sort of slow. It was funny and I connected with the characters. It had a great plot with lots of mystery. Even when it got sort of boring, something just kept me reading. It’s one of a kind because it’s about a topic I’ve never read about (the Star Spangled Banner), but I’m unsure of whether or not it should win an OPLbery award or honor.
