Title: ANDREA CARTER AND THE PRICE OF TRUTH
Author: Susan K. Marlow
Publisher: Kregel Publications
Genre: Inspirational/historical/young adult
Andrea Carter needs to earn her own money to buy her mother a birthday present. She is tired of being added on at the last second on the family gifts and having no say in what is picked out. So she talks her friend, Rosa, into working with her as a migrant orchard picker, but Andi and Rosa are in danger of being fired for bad work when their true identity is discovered. Andi is sent in disgrace to wait for her brother and returned to the house.
When school starts, Andi lands a job in a general store and gives him what money she’d saved for a beautiful music box. But Andi has a penchant for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and soon she finds herself in deep trouble that is tearing her family and the community in half. Not to mention, her horse, Taffy, is placed in danger. Andi must decide if the price of truth is worth the pain of losing Taffy forever.
ANDREA CARTER AND THE PRICE OF TRUTH is the latest release in this series, and it was just as good as the others. I read the book through in one sitting, being pushed by my two daughters who are Andi Carter fans, so they could read it.
Andi has a penchant for acting first and thinking later which gets her into a lot of scrapes which could have been avoided if she followed her friend Rosa’s wise advice. But this makes for a delightful story that will entertain girls from 8 and older. If you have a preteen or young adult then make sure you pick up any of the Andrea Carter series, or more specifically ANDREA CARTER AND THE PRICE OF TRUTH. $7.99. 144 pages.
