Samantha Sanderson On The Scene

Samantha Sanderson On The Scene
Robin Caroll
Samantha is not with the "in" group. So she has a hard time feeling sorry for all of the troubles that Nikki, a mean girl, seems to be suddenly having. But when Nikki begins to be bullied she decides to help her out. No one should be a victim of a bully regardless of how mean they are to others. So she uses her position on the school paper to write a series on bullying. And with the help of her best friend, Makayla, she tries to solve the mystery of who is bullying Nikki.

The plot is realistic and engaging for the intended age of middle school girls. Even as an adult, I enjoyed the story and read it quickly. The subjects of bullying, divorce, and trust were handled well and in a Christian manner. My only complaints would be concerning the grey areas that the girls dealt with concerning sharing gossip and invasion of privacy. The parents were either completely oblivious or didn't really punish their daughter about them. But overall it was a good book that I can recommend to to anyone with middle school girls.

I received this book free of charge from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
