Catch You Later, Traitor by Avi
I'm not an Avi fan since I don't generally like historical fiction and because my students also avoid that so I wasn't expecting much for this book when I began it. I was pleasantly surprised by the story which I enjoyed reading, except for the Sam Spade copycat writing at points. Those sections just seemed forced. But even though I personally enjoyed the book, I still wouldn't recommend it simply because it will have very limited appeal to most middle schoolers. In fact, about a month before I read this book, I weeded nearly every Avi book in my collection since none of them had been checked out for several years.
