Publisher's Description

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!

    I only had the chance to read At the Movies, but if the second book is anything like the first I am sure I would recommend this one to your daughter. I would put this in the ages of 9-11 year olds.

    At the Movies was a great read with strong Christian tweens who have to deal with bullies and learning to stay strong in their faith.

    Samantha is a strong-headed girl (like a lot of tweens) and she loves writing for the school paper. She is very gifted in this area but has to learn to deal with the "rules" of writing and covering a story, one that her father is leading the investigation .

    I am sure most tween girls can relate to the characters in this book and be encouraged as they read about other Christian tweens and how they handle some tough situations.

    Overall, I highly recommend this book to your tween girl:)

    Copies of these books were given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I gave this book to my daughter (who does not like to read) and she read it all within days. So I read it too, and we both really enjoyed it. It has a nice story line that keeps your attention, and important faith lessons woven into the story. I highly recommend this book, for all ages.

    {I received a copy of this book from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review.}

    Samantha is a middle school cheerleader that dreams of following in her mom's footsteps and becoming a journalist. For now, she works on her school news paper. Along with her friend Makayla, Sam solves mysteries and writes about them, while trying to be a good friend and make Godly choices. Although Sam is also a seventh grader, I would say this book is a bit more mature than other books. One of the books deals with bullying and has some discussions questions at the back of the book. There is also a lot of tech talk in this one - texting, etc. This isn't a big deal in our house, but I thought it was worth mentioning. My 13 year old is devouring these books. I would recommend them for girls ages 12-14.

    This book, Samantha Sutton at the movies was written by Robin Caroll. It was not the usual kind of book I read, because it was more of a mystery. But I did like it, the characters seemed like they could be real, and it was entertaining.

    The main story is of Samantha, Sam as she likes to be called, who is a budding journalist. When a bomb is found at her nearby theater she instantly is intrigued. Her father, a police officer, is investigating the case, and she ends up writing about it for her school! Sam is a curious girl who loves writing, but her investigations do lead her to some trouble. Also she shares her faith throughout the book.

    This book is a great book for girls who enjoy Christian mysteries. It is probably for girls about ten and up, because it touches upon subjects that might not be helpful for younger people. But there is also almost no romantic scenes or mention of it. Altogether this was a very nice book, which I would recommend to my friends.

    The first book in an exciting new series about a girl with dreams to become an investigative journalist, each book promises to touch on a crime straight from the headlines, while also tackling tough issues faced by middle-schoolers everywhere.

    A new addition to the Faithgirlz! trusted brand of books introduces readers to Sam Sanderson, an independent, resourceful, tech-savvy cheerleader and aspiring journalist, and Sam's best friend Makayla. They're ordinary 7th graders who enjoy shopping, texting, and going to the mall-along with sniffing out the next big mysteries to report in the school paper.

    In this first book of the series, Sam gets the lead on a developing and controversial story when an explosive device is discovered in a local movie theater-controversial because this movie theater has recently come under attack by a renowned, outspoken atheist, for allowing a local church to show Christian movies at the theater. Sam's family has always been strong in their walk with the Lord, and Sam knows what she believes, but for the first time her faith is really put to the test, especially when she compromises her ethics as a journalist when she reports on the case her father is overseeing for the police.

    This book is a good fit for girls everywhere who are trying to discover themselves through their peers, school, environment and family. This is a down to earth book that helps girls stand stronger in their faith, while relating to every day events that could happen just about anywhere.

    After I read this book, I wanted my cousin to read it also. She is in seventh grade and could benefit from a story like this where her faith could apply to her every day life.

    The book is available to the public on May 6th, 2014!
