"Andi Under Pressure" by Amanda Flower


About this book:

  “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.”

Series: Book #2 in the “Andi Boggs” series. {Books #1, “Andi Unexpected”, review Here! Book #3, “Andi Unstoppable” will be coming out next fall.}

Spiritual Content- There actually was no Spiritual Content at all.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘dumb’, a ‘screw’, a ‘sheesh’, a ‘shoddy’, a ‘shush,’ and a ‘shut up’; Andi is called a ‘suck-up’; a mention of meth labs; Framing & Stealing; The professor gets hurt but it’s barely above not-detailed; Andi & Ava don’t get along; A man was killed 40 years ago in an explosion (not-detailed). *Note: Aunt Amelie does yoga.

Sexual Content- Bethany says that Andi likes Colin (but Andi comes back with that they’re just friends, which they are); Bethany later calls them Boyfriend & Girlfriend (which they aren’t)

My personal Rating- 
(and a half)

{Lowered for lack of Spiritual Content}
There were many parts where I was laughing so hard! But, once I finished the book I looked at my Spiritual Content section—empty. That’s why “Andi Under Pressure” didn’t get five stars, though it was a good book. I hope the next book in the “Andi Boggs” series has Andi’s Faith growing.

See y’all on Tomorrow with our 150th review!!
