In Andi Unexpected (An Andi Boggs Novel), by Amanda Flower, 12-year-old Andi Boggs and her older sister have to move in with their aunt after their parents die in a plane crash. Andi’s aunt lets her clean up the attic of the family home, so she can have a space of her own. While Andi and Colin Carter, a young neighbor, are exploring the attic they find a trunk which holds a mystery. The trunk contains items belonging to Andora Boggs, a family member. Andi, whose real name is Andora, had never her of her.
Colin and Andi are suspicious when people will not answer their questions and someone starts snooping. What will happen? Will they find out what happened to Andora?
About the author- Amanda Flower is a librarian and currently lives in Ohio. She is an Agatha-nominated mystery author.
My thoughts- I thought Andi Unexpected, by Amanda Flower, was a well written book. I felt as if I was part of everybody’s life.
Andi was certainly a character. It would be fun to have her as a friend as she is so adventurous. It was certainly nice for Colin, a young neighbor, to be able to gain such a friend such as Andi, especially since her knew so much about the town. They needed each other to be happy and to solve the mystery of Andora Boggs, one of Andi’s relatives.
I thought there could have been a stronger presence of God, but I am hoping there will be more in the future books. In the series I know they are Christians, but it still needs to be stronger.
I think all tweens would enjoy reading this book. There is lots of adventure and lessons to be learned. I highly recommend it!
