When reading a series, it's difficult to write a different review of each, especially when the consistency of the storyline is maintained. The third of six "Jack and George" adventures delivers more exciting capers from these two fictional kids, and still manages to slip in enough interesting tidbits of history to send me Googling for the real goings-on hinted at in the book. That's something I've always liked in any of Eric Walters' writings: the way they inspire me to dig a bit further on the ...more

What I enjoy about Jack and George's characterizations is the fact that they debate moral positions and what should come first, their family or their loyalty to their country. It's not an easy decision for the boys to make, growing up during the Second World War and knowing what is expected of them after their first two experiences with the people at Camp X. I really admire Walters' ability to write the boys with their own flaws and strengths, that they are two separate people, but that they ...more
I liked this book in the sense that I finished it. But, as much as I do love Eric Walters, I felt it was a little behind the times. While the plot was intricate and well thought out I didn't necessarily like the characters and their motivation, personally.

In this third book of a series, the two brothers are caught up in a WWII adventure on the home front, with Camp X as a backdrop. Believable, suspenseful, and with a moral dilemma to think through, this story will keep adolescents on the edge of their seats. Family love displayed is a bonus!

Another good rollercoaster ride. Walters does it again with the action starting right away. Great story and very thoughtful characters - maybe a little too smart for their age but celebrating maturity is a good thing. Can't wait to read the next one so I can pass it on to my daughter.
