Book Review Time!

Posted by Laura Losch on October 21, 2009

It’s been a while since I have posted a book review and I thought today would be a great day! I read this book a couple of years ago and enjoyed this fast-paced thriller so much that I’m going to share it with you!

Code Orange by Caroline Cooney

Mitty Blake, a rich kid who attends a fancy private school in New York, is always playing catch-up with schoolwork. Luckily he has friends who help him out. But a big Biology research paper is due soon and no one can help Mitty but himself. He starts looking through several old medical books to get a topic idea for his paper. What does he find in one of the old books? An old scab (really gross!)!!! The scab kind of crumbles and disintegrates into the air, but Mitty doesn’t think anything else about it. . . .until he starts researching the virus Variola major. Mitty starts to believe he may have become infected with the disease from the old scab. And the chase starts. . . . Mitty runs away to save all the people in his life from contradicting the virus. A lot of twists and turns happen and this book definitely gets interesting. . . .

Does Mitty in fact have the virus? Did he infect his family and friends with the virus? What can he do to save the people of New York City?  Stop by the library and check this book out to find out. . . .


This is a great book for all the guys out there!!! I’m talking to you guys!!!

Stop by the library and check out Code Orange today! See you in the library!
