“Andi Unexpected” is written by Amanda Flower, and published by ZonderKidz on September 24, 2013.
After their scientist parents die in a plane crash, grieving Andora (Andi for short) and her teenage sister Bethany move to the small town Killdeer in Ohio in the middle of the summer to live with their energetic Aunt Amelie in her old house. Andi meets Colin, the neighbor boy, and immediately befriends him. Andi is devastated when she and her rude sister have to share a bedroom. She comes to her aunt, begging to have her own room. Amelie makes a deal with her: If Andi can clean out the much cluttered attic, she can have that. Colin volunteers to help. They find an old trunk that contains evidence of another girl named Andora in the family, who Andi immediately goes to great lengths to find out more about, risking her life and Colin’s, being grounded, and being arrested.
Overall, I think this book is predictable and typical. Also, Andi regularly disobeys her aunt Amelie.
