Awesome high-adventure mystery for 'tweens
Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2013
My son read "Capture the Flag" in two sittings, and he grabbed this one as soon as we had it and wouldn't let go. Kate Messner has always been a favorite of mine, and I'm so happy that she's created a new mystery with fun characters and interesting settings. I really appreciate the "travel" aspects of this book (it's set mainly in Costa Rica), and we've actually don't some online research to learn more about the locale, as she so captured by 10 year-old son's imagination. The mysteries are well-plotted and the pacing is fantastic. Highly recommended, and we'll definitely be buying the next one.
