Waiting on Wednesday: Andi Unexpected by Amanda Flower

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. 

My lifelong love for mysteries began in middle school with my beloved Nancy Drew stories. Those are such happy memories for me, so I'm super excited for the chance to revisit my childhood with a new YA mystery series by one of my favorite cozy authors! (I understand the cover kitty's name is Mr. Rochester...isn't he cute???)

Blurb: 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. The timeworn house has been home to the Boggs family for generations. Exploring the attic in her grief, Andi 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. (Middle Grade Mystery, target age 8-12)

Publisher: Zonderkidz, a Harper Collins Company
Publication date: 9/2013
