ANDI AND COLIN ARE BACK!


Twelve-year-old Andora ‘Andi’ Boggs and her new best friend Colin Carter couldn’t be more excited to attend the prestigious science camp at the local university in Killdeer, Ohio. Unfortunately, Discovery Camp’s curriculum appears to include much more than just chemistry and biology. From day one, the university is plagued by a series of pranks---missing markers, loose crickets, and stolen scales. Campus security blames the mysterious janitor Polk, but even though Andi agrees he’s acting suspicious, she can’t believe the gentle old man would do anything illegal. Then one prank goes too far and their chemistry professor is injured by an explosion in the lab, upping the stakes of the investigation. Andi and Colin must unravel the secrets behind the chemistry department and Polk’s dark past before danger closes the camp for goo

An orphan starting a new life.
A hidden trunk.
And a forgotten namesake..


Twelve-year-old Andora “Andi” Boggs and her sister Bethany move to rural Ohio to live with their eccentric aunt after the sudden death of their parents. While dealing with her grief, Andi discovers proof of another Andora Boggs hidden in a Depression-era trunk. No one remembers this Andora. Andi, with the help of her new friend Colin Carter, is determined to find out who Andora was and what happened to her.

"I really loved 'Andi Unexpected' and I recommend it to anybody who’s in the mood for a leave-me-alone-I-want-to-finish-this-book type book. I really hope it’s a series so I get to find out what happens to Andi in the future. I have a feeling Colin and Andi aren’t just going to turn out to be the sit-still-at-home type of people."
-Emma, 10-year-old reviewer

"Action-packed with appealing characters and great plot twists, the book is a solid mystery series opener. Andi is sure to please kids with her earnest likability and determined constitution."
-School Library Journal

"Amanda Flower's witty and intriguing delivery of a young detective trying to uncover the town's greatest mystery will keep you entertained and wanting more. The suspense will bring you on your toes, while the characters will leave you smiling. There is a cool touch of history thrown into the book as well, adding another useful element to this read."
-Girls Life Magazine


"Flower weaves in some history and also shines a light on the emotional difficulties the two recently orphaned girls experience... Characterizations... stand out as nicely individualistic... Some life-threatening suspense highlights the book’s climax, and a small smattering of religion keeps the story appropriate for a Christian audience. A fun little detective story with some simple life lessons."
- Kirkus Reviews

"In the upstanding tradition of Nancy Drew and Harriet the Spy, Andi is spunky and unafraid to take risks, though she draws the line when Colin’s life is threatened. Flower, an accomplished adult mystery author, offers here her first work for children, but not her last—sequels are on the way." -Booklist

"Flower creates a cast of memorable characters and a colorful, historically detailed setting. Though a somewhat sinister foe threatens to derail Andi's investigation, she proves a resourceful sleuth. Throughout, the realistic but warm rapport between the sisters and their aunt is the tent pole for a story about starting anew while remembering the past." -Publishers Weekly
