“Samantha Sanderson Without a Trace” book #4 by Robin Caroll
This is the fourth book in the Samantha Sanderson series. I’ve read the first three and fell in love with Samantha and her friends. In book 4 one of Samantha’s friends go missing. She uses her reporting skills to help find him. Tam Lee is an honor student, he doesn’t break the rules and would never skip school. One day he goes missing, however the police think he ran away. Samantha knows her friends wouldn’t run away and tries to prove it. Through her searching she finds that not everything is as it seems and that she might not know her friend as well as she thought she did.
This is another book about trusting God and follow His leading. It’s also a good book to teach about internet safety and the troubles that can come from not watching what your kids are doing online.
I loved this book just as much as I loved the others in this series. We see more of Samantha’s quirkiness and see her grow more as a journalist. I also love that I didn’t know what was going to happen until closer to the end. That made it a fast past read, wanting to know what happens to Tam Lee.
I would recommend this book for ages pre-teen and up. It’s an easy chapter book that has great morals and is fun to read.
