Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure by Susan K. Marlow
When I began reading Trouble with Treasure, it felt like I had gone back in time to the age of 11 or 12 and living an adventure in the Old West. Susan K. Marlow writes about the escapades of Andrea Carter (Andi) and how trust and teamwork work together. Young readers will absorb the customs of the 1880's, new terms, and laugh at Andi's antics, all the while learning the importance of strong family ties and the value of friendship. Andi's Christian faith remains strong in the face of adversity, but author Susan Marlow never preaches at her readers. Fun book! I recommend it along with the other books in the series.
