Andi Unexpected Book Review


Andi Unexpected (An Andi Boggs Novel)

2013 Agatha Award Nominee for Best Children's/YA Novel

After the sudden death of their parents in the jungles of Central America, twelve-year-old science geek Andora 'Andi' Boggs and her diva teenaged sister, Bethany, move to rural Killdeer, Ohio to live with their eccentric twenty-something aunt. And while the timeworn house has been home to the Boggs family for generations, Andi feels far from at home. Exploring the attic in her grief, she discovers proof of another Andora Boggs in the family tree hidden in a Depression-era trunk. Despite the meddling of the citizens of Killdeer, Andi and her new friend, Colin Carter, are determined to find out who this first Andora was, how she vanished, and why no one in town wants to talk about her. As more and more unanswered questions pile up, Andi and Colin must decide who they can trust with their secrets and who is interested in Andora's story for the wrong reasons.

She knew at that moment she'd found her calling of making people laugh with her words.

Cassandra's Review- This book is a great read for adults and children. I love when I can share a great book with the kids.  A good mystery and suspense build up is stored in the book. I think your kids will go through some questions in their mind and really get a good time out of it. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Book Look Bloggers.
