Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure


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.

  1. Hi Debbie,
    Thanks so much for taking the time to review the book and write your encouraging thoughts. Tell Emily THANKS too! And if you have any younger, beginning readers, you may be interested in the beginning chapter books about a young (age 6) Andi and her pony, which are coming out in November.
    Again, thanks so much!
