Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Mystery, intrigue, compassion and adventure are but a few of the feelings aroused as you read this true story of a little known time in the history of the United States. Mike is one of the six Kelly children on the Orphan Train, sent out by The Children's Aid Society which searches for homes in the West for New York City orphans. From the beginning Mike knew that life would be difficult living with the Friedrich family. Mr. Friedrich is a taskmaster to all who work on his farm. Marta and Reuben befriend Mike and they make life a little more bearable. There were secrets in the family and Mike suspects the worst. The Friedrich's son, Gunter, is determined to "send Mike back to New York" and he uses dirty tricks to accomplish his goal. Fortunately, in the end Mike turns the tables on Gunter and justice is served. This is one of six titles in the "Orphan Train Adventures," and although the characters and their adventures are fictional, the context in history is accurate. It is a thoroughly engaging story that leaves you wanting to know more about the Orphan Train and the children. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 10 to 14, $21.27. Reviewer: Karen Werner

    Reveiw

    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.

    The all for nothing

    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.
