Amanda is in England trying to solve the mystery of a missing vintage novel while taking in the sights.
Twelve year old Amanda Ross loves to travel and is excited to be visiting her friend Leah in England. While enjoying a visit to the Isle of Wight, she discovers a vintage novel is missing from a set. Determined to find the missing book, she encounters a couple of tough, street kids, an elderly bookstore owner and a clever Maine Coon cat. Her search takes her to Windsor Castle, the Tower of London, Hampton Court and the London Eye; followed by a mysterious woman and two men in dark suits. Is she risking her life to find this novel?
No sooner does Amanda's spring break vacation begin than she's confronted with a series of mysterious events. Will she be able to figure out what has really been happening to the missing books in Charlie's store?
The most memorable scenes in this story involve Amanda discovering the cultural differences between her hometown in Alberta and London. Everything from clotted cream to the advanced age of certain buildings is new and exciting to her. Amanda's joyful reactions to the rich histories of the places she visits piqued my interest in learning more about them.
What made the plot even more rewarding was how slowly the mystery of the missing books unfolds. Amanda has to work hard to uncover every single clue, and none of them are easy to piece together. I expected to figure out what was happening much earlier on in the plot than I actually did, and it was quite rewarding to finally come to the correct conclusion.
This is the third book in the series, but I had no issues catching up with the highlights of Amanda's previous adventures. If anything the tantalizing glimpses of the mysteries she's attempted to solve in the past made me want to go back and read the first two instalments! Amanda is intelligent, resourceful and plucky, and those traits make reading about her adventures a real pleasure.
Amanda in England: The Missing Novel is a delightful romp through modern-day London. I highly recommend it for readers in late elementary school or for anyone who loves solving playful mysteries that do not reveal their secrets easily.
Another Great Amanda Adventure
Amanda is going on another adventure! This time she is visiting her friend Leah in England. Amanda is having a great time seeing all there is to see in London! While Amanda was visiting a castle in England, she notices a boy running away with a book under his arm. Amanda learns that the book is a rare novel that was stolen! Amanda is determined to find the book, find out why it was stolen and return it. With the help of Leah and a new friend Rylee, Amanda goes off on another adventure around the great country of England.
I am a fan of the Amanda series and I think this book was another great adventure! The action in the book is great. Ms. Foster writes very exciting books that are good for all ages to read. I really liked learning about London from this book. I think that's what I like the most about the Amanda series, you learn about the location the book takes place in. The Amanda character is a great heroine and I think boys as well as girls will really like her. Amanda is a modern girl who a lot of kids can relate to. I can't wait to read the next adventure Amanda goes on!
