Ok, I love this book! It is sooooooo cool!!! It’s even historical, well… kind-of historical. It has historical aspects about it…

Anyways, the book is about the American flag going missing and these three kids have to find it in an airport. The book is very kid-friendly and is a totally awesome adventure, and I LOVE IT!!!!!!

Over all, I HIGHLY suggest this book! It is a very clean and very cool book for both kids and teenagers; plus it is sooooooooo COOL!!!!!! -The Young Llama Reader.

  • Ahhh… Bad people stole stuff?

Anna, José, and Henry have never met, but they have 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 just 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 find the thieves and bring them to justice.

But when accusations start flying, they soon realize there’s even more than a national treasure at stake. With unexpected enemies lurking around every corner, will the trio solve the heist before the flag is lost forever?
