The Book: Knights of the Square Table, by Teri Kanefield
The Blurb: Meet the Knights of the Square Table, San Francisco’s all-star chess team. On their way home from a tournament in Europe, their plane makes a forced landing on a remote island in the North Atlantic. Part survival story, part crime novel with a twist, here’s what happens when six teenagers act on their optimism and attempt the impossible.
The Babble: That’s only the beginning of this team of prodigies adventures. With logical and enterprising thinking, the team meets the survivor’s basic needs, while solving the mystery of stolen food and forcing peace on those ready to lose their heads. With such success behind you, why not go ahead and save the world from nuclear destruction?! Kanefield’s characters are nicely developed, if a little implausible and the story flowed exceptionally well. Recommended for pre-/early-teen readers.
