bookshelves: adventure, children-s-literature, mystery, middle-grade

I love a book that sneaks in some facts wrapped in a good story. The facts in this book are about "The Star Spangled Banner" from Fort McHenry which inspired the national anthem and has gone missing as the story opens. Three middle graders, Anna, Jose, and Henry, who are snowed in at the airport discover they have the same family secret and believe it is up to them to find the missing flag. Throw in a cast of characters including a shady senator and and wild poodle giving the story plenty of twists and turns to keep you turning the pages.
I hear a sequel is in the works can't wait.
