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!

Born and raised in Louisiana, Robin is a southerner through and through. Her passion has always been to tell stories to entertain others. Robin's mother, bless her heart, is a genealogist who instilled in Robin the deep love of family and pride of heritage--two aspects Robin weaves into each of her 14 published novels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enchanted Book Nook Review I got the chance to read this book for free, in exchange for my honest opinion, through Book Look Bloggers. My Review: Sam Sanderson wants nothing more than to be a reporter just like her mother, and what better way to get a head start by writing for the school newspaper. With Sam’s dad being a police officer, she is definitely never hurting for material. When a bomb plan foiled and Sam’s dad takes on this case, Sam finds it the perfect opportunity to write for her school’s new blog. Can the police find the bomber before it’s too late? I really enjoyed this book, I’ve been eyeing it for a while, so when it showed up as a title I could request on Book Look Bloggers, I was quick to request it. This book is perfect for tween readers who like a mystery and a good, fun, clean read. I hope I get to read more stories of Miss Sam Sanderson. Positive Elements: Of course I love to see how Sam grows and handles certain situations in the book. When you first begin to read, Sam is willing to do anything for the story, however, by the time the book ends, I feel Sam has learned how to conduct herself better. I love the fact that Sam is real, and she struggles with father (especially) and life at school, with friends, etc. Negative Elements: The editor of the school newspaper Aubrey hates Sam, this hurts Sam’s feelings and she would love to know why. Some of the women at Sam’s church love to gossip, and Sam just can’t help herself but to eavesdrop. Sam seems to be obsessed with her gadgets, phones, computer, tablet, etc. Her mom got those for her as gifts, but we all know that we shouldn’t really hold gadgets that highly. Spiritual Elements: This is a Christian book, so of course God, Satan, praying, church, the Bible, it’s all discussed. Other Thoughts: The author includes one of my all time favorite Bible verses! 1 Timothy 4:12.
