"Mandie and The Medicine Man" by Lois Gladys Leppard {Pre-Teen Week!}

{Welcome to Pre-Teen Week! Every quarter we’re going to try to do a full week dedicated to finding great Christian books for girls ages 8/9-12 every week day! This is Day Two of this quarters’!} {Day 1 Here!}
About this book:

  “A Cherokee superstition seems to have come back to haunt Mandie and her friends the gold they discovered has been donated to build a new hospital, but something or someone is tearing down the walls as fast as they can be built. The guard posted to watch the site is knocked out, tied up and blindfolded.
  Will Mandie be able to find her friend Joe? Will Mandie and Sallie be rescued from their kidnappers? Will Mandie learn her lesson about jumping to conclusions?”

Series: Book #6 in “Mandie” series. (Read the reviews of: #1 Here! #2 Here! #3 Here! #4 Here! And #5 Here!) {There also is the “Young Mandie Mystery” series, (Book #1 review Here and Book #2 review Here!) but they do not connect together well}

Spiritual Content- Hebrews 11:1 at the beginning; Talks about God; ‘H’s are capital when referring to God; Prayers & a Blessing over food; A couple Scriptures are quoted, mentioned, and prayed; a Mention of what the Bible talks about; Uncle Ned refers to Heaven as “happy hunting ground”;
*Note: Mentions of Cherokee gods, curses, spirits, bad luck & a medicine man.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a ‘shut up’; April is still mad/rude to Mandie & Celia; Tsa’ni doesn’t like white people and acts out.

Sexual Content- Joe gets jealous when Dimar & Tommy are there as all three boys have crushes on Mandie; A Mention of Joe & Mandie marrying when they’re older.

-Amanda “Mandie” Shaw, age 12

My personal Rating-
{Ratings are lowered as ages get higher due to the simple plot.}
This wasn’t my favorite Mandie book, but it was still good. :)
