Samantha Sanderson On the Scene By Robin Caroll

I received this book compliments of BOOKLOOK.  The following post contains a small amt of advertisement.

The second book in an exciting series about a girl with dreams to become an investigative journalist, each book promises to touch on a crime straight from the headlines, while also tackling tough issues faced by middle-schoolers everywhere.
A new addition to the Faithgirlz! trusted brand of books introduces readers to Sam Sanderson, an independent, resourceful, tech-savvy cheerleader and aspiring journalist, and Sam's best friend Makayla. They're ordinary 7th graders who enjoy shopping, texting, and going to the mall-along with sniffing out the next big mysteries to report in the school paper.
As Samantha and the rest of the middle schoolers prepare for the upcoming Spring Fest, "mean girl" Nikki faces the reality that her parents are getting divorced. It's hard for Samantha to sympathize because of Nikki's unkind reputation. But when Nikki becomes victim of a string of attacks, Samantha takes it upon herself and her super sleuth abilities to get down to the bottom of the bullying.

This book is available through ZondervanAmazon, and other online retailers.

I received this book from BookLook Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review. 
This review is compliments of my guest reviewer Katie. She is a Christian tween girl who enjoys reading, and has been helping me out by reviewing age appropriate books to give readers a better perspective.
This is what she had to say:
I think that this book is very cool. It shows that you can accept changes no matter what, and that God will always be with you. It also has some good points on bullying and other situations, such as divorce, and how badly they can affect people. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about crime scenes and mysteries, or anyone who is going through a tough situation. 
Thank you Katie, for a great review. I always enjoy having you on my blog.  


  1. This is awesome! (The counselor in me loves this!) I hadn't heard of this book, but I am sure to get it for my daughters. Although they won't experience divorce, I am sure some of their friends will and certain it will get that message across that no matter what, God is with you.

  2. Love the tween perspective, too, especially since I have one!


I love hearing from my readers. Thank you for leaving a comment.
