My first experience with Andi Carter was when I reviewed the first book about her back in 2008.  Andrea Carter and the Long Ride Home was one of my first reviews ever.  I enjoyed the spunky, precocious heroine then and I still enjoy her now.  She very much puts me in the mind of a young Laura Ingalls (the TV series Laura, not the book series Laura) and I think young readers will really identify with her.

Andi’s latest adventure in chronicled in Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure, by Susan K. Marlow and published by Kregel PublicationsIn this latest book, set in the Sierra Nevada, Andi finds herself and her friends in jail!  Instead of finding the treasure they’d expected when panning for gold, Andi and her friends find themselves in a mess of trouble…with a seriously injured brother to care for.

The Trouble with Treasure is another book in the Circle C Adventures that will keep readers aged 9-14 turning pages.  There is even a free study guide that you can download to take your reader’s interest a step further and use it as a spring board for further study.  The study guide includes discussion questions and vocabulary, while taking a closer look at:

  • The California gold rush
  • Annie Oakley
  • Mountain lions
  • Rattle snakes

You can purchase your copy of Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure, or any of the other Circle C Adventure books for just $8 (plus $2 s/h) from the Circle C Adventures or Kregel Publications websites.

  1. Hi Kris,
    I just stopped by to give you a hearty thanks for your review of TWT (and that was a nice touch referencing the first book, too). 🙂

    Glad you enjoyed the book, and I appreciate your mention of the study guide as well. I know that back in the "old days" of homeschooling, study guides for books were few and far between and I had to create some myself, which was a lot of work! It's nice when folks can take advantage of extra curriculum to make a book stretch a little bit.

    Thanks again!
