"Andi Unstoppable" by Amanda Flower

About this book:

  “Andi Boggs and her best friend Colin Carter are at it again … in this third book of the Andi Boggs series, Andi Unstoppable, school has begun for the two Killdeer middle schoolers and the science teacher has a great idea! He is an expert birder and wants his class to share in the fun. In a birding group with Colin and her biggest school rival, Ava, Andi sets out to be the first student in class to spot the elusive Kirtland's warbler but ends up spotting the town’s resident ghost instead!
  Together with her friends, Andi takes on another small town mystery—is the legend of the ghost of Dominika Shalley more than just a story? And does her sudden appearance have anything to do with the holes the friends find in the Shalley graveyard as they look for the rare bird?”

My personal Rating-

{Lowered for lack of Spiritual Content}
I’m a bit confused at the copyright page…it shows the copyright of the NIV Bible, yet no Scriptures are mentioned nor quoted in “Andi Unstoppable”, much to my dismay. I liked the first two Andi books much better than this one, due to the whole ghost thing, but I did like learning more about Ava.

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
*I received this book for free from the Publisher (Zonderkidz) through BookLookBloggers for this review.
