"Sport" the YA book?
November 17, 2016 9:56 AM   Subscribe

I'm trying to find a book I read as a kid. I think it was called "Sport" or "Scout" or something like that. It was about a kid who liked to pretend he was a spy? Something like that? I think the cover had an image of him hiding under a hotel room service cart. My Google-fu just keeps finding books about sports. Does anyone know what book I'm talking about?

The plot of Sport is that his mother kidnaps him and hides him in the Plaza hotel because she didn't like the conditions of her father's will.

Such a great book. I don't know why, but it has stuck with me all these years. One of my top 10, in fact.
