About the book:
The third book in an exciting 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.
In this third book of the Samantha Sanderson series, the school’s grades have been tampered with, and Sam must enlist Makayla’s help in hacking the computer system to discover the virus that was used and who committed the crime. But when the lead suspect is her newfound friend, Felicia, Sam must choose between sticking by her friends at all cost or reporting the story as she sees it.
The Samantha Sanderson series is about an ordinary girl with extraordinary dreams. Each book touches on a crime straight from the headlines, from bomb threats to bullying, while following Samantha and her friends as they navigate middle-school and questions about faith.
Why I choose this book: 
As I’ve said before I write MG fiction so any time I see a good looking MG book I feel the need to gobble it up. Besides, a journalist in middle school? Fun. 

What I thought: 
The book was interesting. I wasn’t glued to the story but I did want to keep reading and find out what would happen next. It was fun being thrown into Samantha’s world and I thought the characters were realistic, relatable and really made the story. I especially liked Samantha’s dad. I look forward to reading more of Robin Caroll’s books in the future. 
For the most part the book was good. There was some snark and sneaking around and such because sadly that’s a part of our world, but it was clearly not condoned. I would be fine giving my little siblings this book to read. 


I’m giving Samantha Sanderson: Off the Record Three and a half Stars

I received this book free from Book Look in exchange for an honest review.
