Thick as Thieves by Susan K. Marlow book review



Thick as Thieves
By Susan K. Marlow

   From Christian author Susan Marlow comes yet another book for young people! This new chapter book is the start of another collection of books about the popular character Andrea Carter who lives on a ranch in California! Readers who have enjoyed the previous books about Andi (the Circle C beginnings and adventures) will be delighted that the author has decided to continue sharing fictional Andrea's adventures as she grows into a young lady!
New readers will find, just as I did, that any of Susan Marlow's books can be read on their own as well as part of the series. Of course once you read Mrs. Marlow's works you will want to get her other titles as well!

   I have always been an avid reader. Growing up, I loved historical fiction. Now that I am an adult, I still enjoy speed-reading books for a younger audience in the hopes of finding new favorites for my siblings as well as my future children. Although there are many wonderful books for children and young adults which are not particularly Christian (think Little House and such), it is always great to be able to provide books for your children which reinforce Biblical truths and grace. I have found that Susan's books stay true to the Christian faith without becoming fake or unrealistic.
Unusually for Christian works of fiction, her books are also quite exciting. These books make splendid read-aloud as well as personal reading books.

 In Thick as Thieves, now fourteen-years old, Andrea Carter learns the meaning of true friendship through an exciting series of events.
The lessons within this book are applicable to all ages- boys or girls. I am looking forward to Susan Marlow's next books in the series!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!
