Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure is the fifth book in a series of mystery/adventure books for tweens. Although I haven’t read others in the series, I had no trouble jumping into this series in the middle.
Andrea (Andi) is a tomboy who lives on a California ranch in the late 1800’s. She is brave, adventurous, and loyal to her friends and family. In this book, Andi, her two friends, and her older brother take a trip into the Sierra Nevada mountains, expecting the most exciting event to be the prospect of panning for gold and finding a few flakes. Instead, they have run-ins with bank robbers, rattlesnakes, and a dishonest deputy. The courage and ingenuity of these young people is fully tested throughout their adventure.
I thought this book was engaging and well-written. This action packed story is sure to be a hit with any child. We look forward to reading more books in this series.
Emily says, “I like this book because it is exciting and scary.”
I received this book free from Kregel Publications for review purposes.
