Book Review: "Without a Trace"
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.
If you have a tween then make sure you grab this book to grab their attention. This book is full of mystery and would be a great book to also read as your tween reads to discuss some of the real life obstacles found in this book. I think once your tween has finished reading this book having a discussion on dreams and talents would be in order as this book really shares the dreams of main character Samantha. There are lots of good questions that I think would be great to process together with your tween kids.
Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.
