- Review by Penny
“Samantha Sanderson – At the Movies” was sent to me from FAITHGIRLS, a division of Zondervan Publications. “At the Movies” is a Christian fiction novel by Robin Caroll. Robin also has “Samantha Sanderson – On the Scene”…among her many other books that can be found at www.faithgirlz.com I will be reviewing the other “Samantha Sanderson” book in the near future. These books are written with the teen and tween girl in mind, but I certainly enjoyed this one, as well.
Samantha Sanderson is a journalist for her school newspaper/blog…with a little help from her computer whiz best friend, Makayla. Her mom is also a journalist who she looks up to as her mentor. She also adores her daddy, who is a lead detective. Sam witnesses a crime and is made the lead journalist to report on it. The problem is she puts her nose in where it doesn’t belong and gets herself in a lot of trouble. I love that we also get to see Sam witness to one of her friends that she finds out isn’t saved and wants nothing to do with Christianity.
I DEFINITELY recommend this book and Robin Caroll’s others.
