by John Flanagan
I love The Ranger's Apprentice series. Mr. Flanagan once again spins an exciting tale of adventure. Good versus evil.
In The Siege of Macindaw, Flanagan again deals with emotional challenges. He shows the results of poor decision making on one's future. His heroes portray the meaning of true friendship, even in the face of various pressures from other people.
This sixth book has a little more "love story" than the others. As an adult, I found this aspect a bit silly, but it could perhaps be a teaching tool for young adults dealing with boy-girl relationships. A parent could discuss with a younger reader some of the things the characters involved say and do.
