Children's Novel Review: Andi Unstoppable (An Andi Boggs Novel) by Amanda Flower

Book Description:
Andi Boggs and her best friend Colin Carter are at it again … in this third book of the Andi Boggs series, Andi Unstoppable, school has begun for the two Killdeer middle schoolers and the science teacher has a great idea! He is an expert birder and wants his class to share in the fun. In a birding group with Colin and her biggest school rival, Ava, Andi sets out to be the first student in class to spot the elusive Kirtland warbler but ends up spotting the town’s resident ghost instead!

Together with her friends, Andi takes on another small town mystery—is the legend of the ghost of Dominika Shalley more than just a story? And does her sudden appearance have anything to do with the holes the friends find in the Shalley graveyard as they look for the rare bird?

My Review:
I haven't read the first two novels in the Andi Boggs series, but I can tell you I enjoyed the third one. This mystery can be read as a stand-alone, but I think the kids who read it will want to read the others as well. Amanda Flower knows how to write an engaging book for intermediate through middle graders. The characters are delightful and have just enough spunk to seek out answers without getting into too much trouble. Andi Unstoppable sets Andi and her friends Colin and Ava in the woods searching for a mysterious bird. But that's  not the only mystery they need to solve. Even though the plot involves tales of a ghost, the supernatural isn't the emphasis nor the truth. If you're looking for a fun, entertaining read for your children, I'd recommend the Andi Boggs books. I might even read the other two myself.

I received this book in exchange for a fair review.
