Review: Off the Record by:Robin Caroll
About the Book:
Sam Sanderson is an independent, resourceful, high-tech cheerleader. She dreams of becoming an award-winning journalist like her mother, so she’s always looking for articles to publish in her middle-school paper (where she secretly hopes to become chief editor). With a police officer for a father, Sam is in no short supply of writing material.
In the third book of the Samantha Sanderson series, when the school’s grades were tampered with, Sam must enlist Makayla’s help in hacking the system to discover the virus that was used and who committed the crime. But when the lead suspect is her newfound friend, Felicia, Sam must choose whether to stick by her friends at all costs or report the story as she sees it.
The Samantha Sanderson series is about an ordinary girl with extraordinary dreams. Each book touches on a crime straight from headlines, from bomb threats to bullying, while following Samantha and her friends as they navigate middle-school and questions of faith.
Off the record is another great mystery added to The Samantha Sanderson series. Which is perfect for the pre-teen girl or teen girl that enjoys mysteries. In this addition Samantha has to make a choice in her investigation and the choice is a very difficult one for her to make. The school grades get tampered with and all the evidence points to her friend Felicia. She is definitely caught in a quandary.
Off the record has a lot more to deal with this time around because it discusses more about middle school life for those pre-teens and teens. It discusses dishonesty, crushes, and some bullying, peer pressure at it's best. It's not always easy to do the right thing especially when the odds are stacked against you. Will Samantha do what's right or will she wimp out?
