Samantha Sanderson Off the Record by Robin Caroll
I read the book Samantha Sanderson Off the Record by Robin Caroll because I have two middle school aged girls and I thought it would be something they would enjoy but I wanted to check it out first. It is book three of the Samantha Sanderson FaithGirlz! series, chapter books that are based on middle school scenarios. It is about a middle school girl who desperately wants to be a journalist. Her mother is a journalist and her father is a detective. The book is about a computer virus that has gotten into the computer system and changed the kids grades. Samantha wants to be the one to cover the case and see what she can find out. Her friend is a computer whiz and helps Samantha throughout the whole book. This book has so much in it from the computer virus, mean girls, kittens, giving people chances and plane crashes. Samantha made a New Years resolution to love her neighbor. She thought this would literally have her helping her neighbor but she found out that it meant much more when it came to loving people in her community even if they didn't love her.
I can not wait to have my girls read this and see what they think. I know they will love it. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't wait to pick it back up again to finish reading it. The author does a good job of setting the middle school scene and the way a middle school child would react to situations.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
