Format: Paperback

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview:

A new addition to the Faithgirlz trusted brand of books, Samantha Sanderson’s Big Story introduces us to Sam Sanderson, an independent, resourceful, future award-winning journalist, and her best friend Makayla, two 7th graders who enjoy shopping, texting, going to the mall, the skating rink---and sniffing out the next big mysteries to report in the school paper.
Sam Sanderson is an independent, resourceful, high-tech cheerleader. She dreams of becoming an award-winning journalist like her mother, and so she’s always looking for articles she can publish in her middle-school paper (where she secretly hopes to become editor). And with a police officer for a father, Sam is in no short supply for writing material. It seemed like the perfect opportunity. When an explosive device is found in the local theater, Sam gets the lead on this developing and controversial story---controversial because the movie theater has recently come under attack by a renowned, outspoken atheist for allowing a local church to show Christian movies. Sam’s police-officer father happens to be heading the investigation, and Sam can’t resist doing some sleuthing of her own with the help of her best friend Makayla’s techno-genius. But when Sam’s theories end up being printed in the school paper, she lands in big trouble---and danger!

Review by Penny
Overall Rating
The following book was sent to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review of it.
“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 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.
