Book Review: Andi Unexpected

"Twelve-year-old Andora 'Andi' Boggs and her fourteen-year-old sister Bethany move to rural Ohio to live with their eccentric twenty-something aunt after the sudden death of their parents. While dealing with her grief, Andi discovers proof of another Andora Boggs in the family tree whose existence was hidden in a Depression-era trunk in the attic. With help from her new friend and neighbor, Colin Carter, Andi is determined to find out who this first Andora was and what happened to her."

It's been quite a while since I've read any children's books, but I'm so glad that I took the opportunity to review this one. While it's written for the upper elementary age group, the story is one that drew me in. Amanda develops her characters in such a way that adults and children alike can relate to them. Even I shivered a little bit at the bad guy. He's certainly the type that we probably all know and hope to never run into.

As a mom, I can't wait to try to introduce the boys to this book. If you have children in the upper elementary range, can I just suggest that this book make it into some stockings? Your kids will love it and you'll love that they're not only reading, but reading something that's fun and safe. It will inspire the imagination and maybe even some entrepreneurism. Not sure what I mean? Pick up the book and check it out for yourself.
