Andrea Carter and the Trouble With Treasure

Author: Susan K. Marlow
Publisher: Kregel Publications
January 2010
ISBN: 978-0-8254-3352-8
Genre: Inspirational/youth

When innocent horseplay lands Andi and her friends in jail, they are horrified. But their stay is short-lived when the bank in town is robbed. Andi’s brother, Mitch, is planning on taking Andi and her friend Jenny up the mountain to visit a logging camp, and their friend, Chad, begs to go along and pan for gold.

The three friends can’t think of anything that will be better than two weeks of camping, horseback riding, and hopefully striking it rich with some forgotten gold diggings.

But instead of gold they find trouble. Mitch is gravely injured and Andi needs help fast. What good is an adventure when her brother lies near death in the wilderness?

ANDREA CARTER AND THE TROUBLE WITH TREASURE is the fifth book in the Circle C Adventure series. I started reading it around noon, and three hours later, turned the last page. This is an engaging read for tweeners (ages 8 – 12) or slightly older youth.

Ms. Marlow knows how to weave an interesting tale that will keep the reader engaged from page one. This is a perfect read for the favorite tweener in your life, and one that will not only entertain them, but also teach them a good lesson. $7.99. 144 pages.
