Genre: Young Adult / suspense

Sam Sanderson is an independent, resourceful, high-tech cheerleader. She dreams of becoming an award-winning journalist like her mother, and so she's always looking for articles she can publish in her middle-school paper (where she secretly hopes to become editor). And with a police officer for a father, Sam is in no short supply for writing material.

It seemed like the perfect opportunity.

When an explosive device is found in the local theater, Sam gets the lead on this developing and controversial story---controversial because the movie theater has recently come under attack by a renowned, outspoken atheist for allowing a local church to show Christian movies. Sam's police-officer father happens to be heading the investigation, and Sam can't resist doing some sleuthing of her own with the help of her best friend Makayla's techno-genius. But when Sam's theories end up being printed in the school paper, she lands in big trouble---and danger!

SAMANTHA SANDERSON AT THE MOVIES is for tweens so I let my tween daughter review it.

She says: It started slow, but it got a lot better at the end. Most of the story was about a bomb, and trying to find a suspect. This one guy in the story was getting threats. It was kinda scary at times.

This was a mystery/suspense for young adult readers and if you like that genre you might like this book. $8.99. 272 pages. 3 stars.
