This is a great discussion book for teens or tweens. I know that bullying is talked about a great deal, but this book brings a different perspective on the word bully. To be pegged a traitor and then ostracized by everyone, Pete has to face different hardships everyday. When his best friend, Kat seems to ignore him also, he doesn’t give up. Pete stands his ground and rises above the suspicion. What would you do if you were in Pete’s shoes? What if you were Kat? Teen or tween book club book-yes! ( )

Twelve-year-old Pete Collison is isolated from his friends and class activities when rumors quickly spread that Pete's dad is a Commie (Communist). Moreover, a FBI is keeping tabs on him.With no one to turn to, Pete starts his own investigation;imitating his idol, Sam Spade, Pete collects clues to determine who the Communist informant is. This book is a great tool for both history and literary instruction. Specifically, this book can be used to discuss the events that occured during Communism, as well as focusing on predicting. Due to it's historical content, this book is likely intended for 5th to 7th graders. Personally, I enjoyed this book because it was a mystery book and as a series the characters can embark on more adventures. ( )

Thanks to Goodreads and Random House for a free copy of this book!

I've never met an Avi book I didn't like, and this one is no exception. Catch You Later, Traitor is a fantastic middle grade blend of historical fiction and mystery.

Peter Collison is a seventh grader who likes baseball and pulp detective stories. But it's the 1950s, and McCarthyism is in full swing. When rumours emerge about Peter's father being a communist, and the FBI shows up at his door, he's determined to figure things out. He gets pulled into family secrets and political tensions.

You know in Calvin and Hobbes when Calvin did his hard-boiled detective act? Set that in the 1950s, and that's what Catch You Later, Traitor reminded me of. A kid sometimes speaking in detective novel cliches and observing the world around him.

And the end result is engaging, heartbreaking, funny, and rich with historical detail. ( )

This novel is historical fiction, set during the beginnings of the Red Scare.

After WWII, America had a great fear of the Communists, resulting in people being blacklisted if suspected of being a Communist. Evidence was unnecessary. People lost their jobs, were guilty by association, and blackballed for decades. It’s this world that Pete lives in. Someone mentions his father at school and people start making weird comments and avoiding him. He learns that people, including his teacher, think his father is a Communist. Pete’s teacher treats him like a criminal and tells the other kids to ostracize him. His best friend Kat wants to remain friends, but her parents keep her away.

Pete is a big fan of detective stories, so he decides to investigate and determine if his father is a Communist. Pete has to interview family members and find people who knew his dad years ago. In his investigation, Pete learns a lot about his father’s family and the secrets they’ve been keeping. As he investigates, Pete is followed by the FBI. Pete wants to know if his family has spies in it, but he doesn’t want to reveal his knowledge to the FBI, so he must be careful to stay out of sight.

This novel explains briefly what life was like during the Depression and what people did that haunted them years later in the 1950s. The House Un-American Activities Committee investigated people for supposed connection to our enemy Russia--investigating as far back as to the Depression era when people went to Commie parties for fun or for hope. By the fifties, we greatly feared Russian spies amongst our neighbors and friends. As the atomic bomb had been dropped recently, we feared the Communists would do the same to us, and we knew how destructive that could be. Ultimately, this novel is about fear and how fear can make logic, decency, and freedom null and void. ( )
