Review of "Andi Unexpected"

Review of Andi Unexpected

by Amanda Flower


Twelve-year-old Andora 'Andi' Boggs and her fourteen-year-old sister Bethany move to rural Ohio to live with their eccentric twenty-something aunt after the sudden death of their parents. While dealing with her grief, Andi discovers proof of another Andora Boggs in the family tree whose existence was hidden in a Depression-era trunk in the attic. With help from her new friend and neighbor, Colin Carter, Andi is determined to find out who this first Andora was and what happened to her.

 MY REVIEW:    This is a delightful suspensefilled young adult fiction which is also highly appropriate to adults also.    Andi Boggs does not know why no one in town wants to speak to her about her long lost namesake, Andora Boggs, but she and her new friend, Colin, intend to find out.  What a fun adventure they go on!   Her sister, Bethany, is not too keen on helping her or sharing a room.   So Andi is allowed to clean the attic and live in it.    That is when she discovers evidence of her namesake.   I hope there is going to be a sequel to this book because I certainly have many questions I would love to see answered.   
I received a copy of this book from in exchange for my honest review.
