Caught in the act is a boring book that does not catch you attention I would not read it if I were you. The author might be good in some other books but certainly not this one! This book should never have been published. If you like Little House on the Prairie books you just might like this one. Mike gets sent to the west side of the United States because he was a pick pocket in New York and got sent the on an orphanage train and met a U.S army captain Joshua Taylor. That¿s what I think on it.

I think this book is a good story that just makes you want to keep reading more. When my class read it, people would keep reading more to themselves after we stopped and put them away.

This book is a good book, but it wasn't my favorite. This book was pretty exiting until I quit reading. Go ahead READ IT!
