Quick Overview:

A new addition to the Faithgirlz trusted brand of books, Samantha Sanderson is a modern, resourceful 7th grader who enjoys shopping, texting, skating---and sniffing out the next big mystery to report in the school paper. In the second book of the series, On the Scene, Sam and her tech-savvy BFF Makayla are investigating a string of bullying attacks against their frenemy, Nikki.

What if getting to the bottom of a mystery means learning how to love your enemy?

As Samantha and the rest of the middle schoolers prepare for the upcoming Spring Fest, “mean girl” Nikki faces the reality that her parents are getting divorced. Samantha has a hard time sympathizing—Nikki has never been very nice to anyone, let alone Samantha.

But when Nikki becomes victim of a string of attacks, Sam takes it upon herself and uses her super sleuth abilities to get to the bottom of the bullying. After all, articles on bullying are just what the school paper needs instead of all that silly fluff like popularity tips. Samantha enlists the help of her tech-savvy BFF, Makayla, but while the two track down clues, they leave a trail of trouble behind—and may even be directly responsible for the break-in of their very own school’s computer lab!

Samantha Sanderson is a resourceful seventh grader with the extraordinary dream to become an aspiring award-winning journalist. Sam and her best friend, Makayla, are always sniffing out the next big mystery to report in the school paper—that is, when they aren’t busy navigating the crazy world of middle school, faith, and friends.

Review by Laura
Overall Rating

SAMANTHA SANDERSON ON THE SCENE is written for tweeners (ages 8-12) so my daughter wanted the opportunity to read and review it.)

She said: “I liked it. They are dealing with a bully and I don’t want to tell who it was, but it was a good read. I would recommend it for kids in public school who might have to deal with bullies.”

“Samantha Sanderson - On the Scene” was sent to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review by Faithgirlz…which is a division of Zondervan.
“On the Scene” is a Christian fiction novel written by Robin Caroll. It is part of the Samantha Sanderson series. Robin has written many sweet Christian series. As seen earlier, “Samantha Sanderson – At the Movies” was a great book. “On the Scene” is wonderful, too.
In this novel Samantha is helping her friend Nikki deal with some bullying after she was voted to the homecoming court. Samantha is a reporter for her middle school newspaper. Since Nikki won’t report the bullying, Samantha gets the bright idea to do a series on bullying and the school’s zero tolerance program to discourage and crack down on it. Because it was her idea, Sam is assigned with the stories.
I really enjoyed this story and I believe any young girl would love it as well. I highly recommend it.
