Review: Have you ever experienced bullying or seen one of your friends be bullied? Well in Samantha Sanderson: On The Scene by Robin Caroll one girl Samantha or Sam knows becomes a victim of string attacks, and Sam wants to find out who is doing it. This is the second book in the Samantha Sanderson series.
In Samantha Sanderson: On The Scene, Sam and her best friend Makalya do cheer at their school. Sam's mom is a journalist who travels around the world, and when Sam gets older, she wants to be just like her mom. Sam is in the newspaper at her school. So is the girl Nikki, who is getting bullied by someone at the school. To make matters worse, Nikki's parents might be getting a divorce soon. Nikki and Sam have never been the best of friends; in fact they were almost enemies until the bulling started. Nikki's best friend is Aubrey who is mean to almost everyone. When Nikki first starts getting bullied, she doesn't want anyone to know about it mostly because it may have a chance to harm her chance of becoming homecoming queen. On top of all of this, there is a break in at the school; someone steals computers out of the lab. Sam and Makalya might have been responsible for part of it. If you would like to find who did it and more, read the book.
I liked Samantha Sanderson: On the Scene a lot. It was very interesting and left me anxious to come back and read more. I liked they way the book was formatted so that the chapters ended in just the right spots, to make readers want to read more. Overall, the book was great overall and a good story that you would want to read again and again. This is a good story also because anyone may be able to relate to the main character, Sam. This is a great realistic fiction book and very informal. It handles serious situation in bullying and teaches a lesson in a great story. You can learn a lot from the fictional character Sam Sanderson.
