A substitute teacher, a kidnapping, and mysterious men make the newest Circle C an adventure not to be missed.

Andi thinks her worst nightmare has come true when her teacher, Miss Hall, gets hurt and can’t teach for a while. It is worse than she could have imagined when Andi’s mother becomes the substitute teacher. Andi is afraid the other kids will tease her, but her worries disappear when she and her mother are kidnapped and taken far away to a man who was looking for Miss Hall to teach him how to read. Her mother is adamant they not tell of the mistaken identity and risk angering their kidnappers.  While Andi tries to be good and stay out of trouble, her mother teachers their captor to read and  she finds interesting facts about his past and why it is so important he learn to read. As time runs out for them to be rescued, Andi must summon her courage and escape to try and save her mother before it is too late.

The newest adventure in the Circle C series takes the reader on an entirely new path from what we are used to seeing with Andi. In the previous Circle C books, Andi has fun being a kid; here things are much more serious and there is no time for fun and games. Andi has to show how brave she can be when faced with her most frightening situation yet. This story is very much about being brave, trusting those who we love and also staying true to your faith in God. Young readers that are looking for an adventure that is a little more of a challenge will enjoy Andi to the Rescue without having to worry about being scared from the content.  I recommend this book to those readers and even parents looking for a good book to read together with their kids.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
