Morse Pond Review: Catch You Later, Traitor


Catch you Later, Traitor


Algonquin for Young Readers


Available in March 2015

The book Catch You Later Traitor by Avi is about the Red Scare in 1959. A boy named Pete Collison is a 12 year old who loves Sam Spade. But, when an FBI agent comes to Pete’s house accusing his dad of being a communist, Pete finds himself in a real life mystery. My favorite part of the story is when Pete and his dad go to see his uncle who later dies. My favorite character in the story is either Pete or his dad. I liked the book because I love reading stuff around the World War II time period.

Absolutely Truly by Heather Vogel Frederick was phenomenal. My favorite part about it is the funny characters, especially Truly Lovejoy. At almost six feet tall she definitely stands out.

One day at the bookstore she finds a mysterious letter in an old copy of Charlotte’s Web. With her new friends she follows clues around town. Will Truly solve the mystery before it’s too late? Find out in the new novel by Heather Vogel Frederick , who visited Morse Pond School.
