Title: Andi Unstoppable
Author: Amanda Flower
Publisher: Zonderkidz
Ages: 9-12


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 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?

Why you should read it: 

If you were a fan of Nancy Drew mystery books when you were younger, you will see some similarities in the latest book in the Andi Boggs series. If you've never read a children's mystery story before, maybe now's the time to try them out.

Main characters Andi and her best friend Colin are very believable.  Andi has not had it easy being an orphan and middle school can be challenging. Especially when she has to deal with someone like bossy Ava, who joins her team to photograph the elusive Kirkland Warbler for a Life Science project. But when Colin's great aunt Claudette agrees to take the three of them on an overnight camping trip to Shalley Park to look for the rare bird, they come across the graves of the Shalley brothers who were killed during the Civil War. They also learn about a ghost supposedly haunting the graveyard. But when they discover a patch of freshly dug dirt near one of the graves, Andi and Colin decide this is one mystery they need to solve.

Ms. Flower has continued the fun adventures in her Andi Boggs series with her latest endeavor. Lovers of the Nancy Drew style of writing will see the familiar in this story while still being able to enjoy following Andi and Colin as they try to solve a modern day mystery. A good addition to any home library.
