About the book:
After the sudden death of their parents in the jungles of Central America, twelve-year-old science geek Andora “Andi” Boggs and her diva teenaged sister, Bethany, move to rural Killdeer, Ohio to live with their eccentric twenty-something aunt. And while the timeworn house has been home to the Boggs family for generations, Andi feels far from at home. Exploring the attic in her grief, she discovers proof of another Andora Boggs in the family tree hidden in a Depression-era trunk. Despite the meddling of the citizens of Killdeer, Andi and her new friend, Colin Carter, are determined to find out who this first Andora was, how she vanished, and why no one in town wants to talk about her. As more and more unanswered questions pile up, Andi and Colin must decide who they can trust with their secrets and who is interested in Andora’s story for the wrong reasons.

My thoughts:

Andi Unexpected was a fun, easy read - one I think young readers will love! I loved the whole mystery aspect of who was the other Andora Boggs and why do some people freak out when they hear her name.

I liked the characters - they were fun! Things Bethany said seemed so typical for a teenage girl. The story had a Nancy Drew feel to it - which I enjoyed, since I loved those books when I was a kid. ;)

All in all, a great read geared for young readers, but adults can also enjoy it. I recommend it.
