Andi Under Pressure

Author: Amanda Flower
Publisher: Zonderkidz

ISBN: 978-0310737025
Genre: Tween/suspense

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 good.

ANDI UNDER PRESSURE is the second book in the An Andi Boggs series. Andi Unexpected is the first book. I didn’t read Andi Unexpected, but I wasn’t lost at all in this book.

ANDI UNDER PRESSURE is a really good suspense. I really liked it. I never would have expected who the ‘bad guy’ really was! It kept me guessing all the way through. It wasn’t scary and I felt comfortable reading it at night. I recommend it to kids that like mystery and suspense. The faith message was almost nonexistent, so even good for not Christian kids ages 8 – 12.  Available in ebook and in hardcover. 176 pages.
