- I loved this sweet story! by Nancee on 8/31/2015
Andi and Colin are attending a summer science camp held at the local college. Amateur sleuths, they're about to delve into mysterious events surrounding the science department. Andi and Colin's capers bring to mind stories of Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys from my childhood.
Amanda Flower uses many innovative elements in her stories concerning Andi and her best friend, Colin. The sweet innocence portrayed in these short novels is exemplary. Childhood is presented as it should be, filled with creativity, exploration and imagination. All is not rosy in the lives of these youngsters, but the author uses difficult issues to create a portrait of reality through fiction.
Andi's capers are intriguing, enchanting and humorous. I found Andi Under Pressure to be a sweet and very enjoyable read, and I look forward to future stories about Andi and her friends. I highly recommend this book for children ages 9-14 and older. Adults will find these stories delightful as well!

- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 11/20/2014
When I was a pre-teen I fell in love with the popular mysteries of the day like Trixie Beldon, Nancy Drew, and even The Boxcar Children. Now that I have grandchildren old enough to read we've been enjoying those old classics, but I must admit they are dated in spots.
We recently were introduced to the Andi Boggs series and it has been the answer to our outdated dilema. Andi is a delightfully precocious 12 year-old that is just brimming with curiosity. The first book in the series is entitled Andi Unexpected. It introduces all of the characters and has a wonderfully engaging mystery that the characters solve.
In book two, Andi Under Pressure, we meet back up with Andi and her friend Colin. They have been selected to attend a prestigious science camp called Discovery Camp. They are both excited to attend but soon after they arrive mysterious things begin to happen. The curious duo quickly dive in to investigate what is going on.
I enjoyed so much about this book. The characters are wholesome and display qualities that you would like for your children to emulate. My grands were engaged with the story and kept asking for just one more chapter. It was fun to listen to their guesses at what was really going on. If you have young mystery lovers in your life this would be a great book for them. While both of the books are related they can each be read as a stand-alone.
