From the author's website:
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.
I did not believe the premise that a flag that large and that old would be so easy for someone to steal. This particular flag would be too brittle to fold in such a way, and it bothered me that someone cut off a piece.
As for the Silver Jaguar society, contrived solely for the purpose of linking the characters and their adult counterparts, it seems a little more coincidental that necessary. Still, you should enjoy reading this 2015 Mark Twain nominee.
This is the first in the Silver Jaguar series of books by Kate Messner. Capture the Flag is a predictable, yet fun, story. It pretends to be a sort of National Treasure story for kids, but at times takes unbelievable routes into areas of the airport that seem to be less secure than they should.
