Sam stared at her article, then stood and paced again. She needed to make it good… strong. Something Mom would be proud of her for writing.

Genre: Realistic Fiction/Mystery
Target Audience: Girls 11-15

Summary: Her mom is a reporter, her dad is a police officer. Her desire to be an investigative reporter was simply inevitable. Since God had them conveniently located at the scene of the crime right when it was discovered Sam gets first chance at writing the article for the school newspaper. When it’s a success she gets the role of writing the rest of the series. She couldn’t be more thrilled! Her dad on the other hand is not so happy. Sam is taking this way too seriously and writing things she’s not supposed to know. He’s not the only one not happy about it though. Her suspects aren’t very pleased either! Soon Sam has received warnings to avoid these suspects at all costs because of the possible danger she could be in! She just wants to know how she can come up with good material for her articles if she can’t do the investigating she wants!
Notes: This is the first in a series about a middle-school girl with a passion for cheerleading and investigative writing. She is a strong Christian who takes her faith seriously. She encounters friends who are not Christians and makes a strong effort to not look down on them, but rather show them love and hope that they come to know the Savior she has found. When she messed up, a talk with a neighbor helps her understand the importance of confessing and admitting to having broken trust with someone. She also faces the challenge of knowing loved ones could be hurting or in danger and in a conversation with her mom, learns the importance of praying for them and trusting in God to take care of them. This book is a part of the faithgirlz imprint – books for girls 5th-8th grade that specifically focus on helping their grow in their faith.
I highly recommend this book.
