Review: Samantha Sanderson: Without a Trace by:Robin Caroll

Samantha Sanderson Without a Trace
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 fourth book of the Faithgirlz Samantha Sanderson series, Sam’s friend Tam Lee is missing. As the days pass, all clues seem to point to something sinister in Sam’s opinion. Sam must decide whether to do what everyone wants her to and let law enforcement continue to work as though Tam is a run-away. Or should Sam follow her heart and keep poking around looking for more clues?


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.

My Review:
 Samantha Sanderson is a favorite in our home, my daughter has always enjoyed this series and as always Samantha has got a mystery to solve. And her mysteries are usually a pretty big deal. Samantha's love of mystery I think comes from her father the police officer. Without a Trace is the fourth book in the series.

 Samantha is excited about going on a family vacation when she finds out a real good friend has went missing. She has to decide if she will trust the law enforcement to find her friend or is the investigation better left in her hands because this is a special case. She just knows that this is not a classic runaway case, there has to be more to it.

 Middle school girls will really appreciate this book more. This series has really rich characters and the writing draws you in and you feel like you are a part of the book. It has a real family sort of feel. A very intriguing plot line.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
