Twelve-year-old Andora ‘Andi’ Boggs and her new best friend Colin Carter couldn’t be more excited to attend the prestigious science camp at the local university in Killdeer, Ohio. Unfortunately, Discovery Camp’s curriculum appears to include much more than just chemistry and biology. From day one, the university is plagued by a series of pranks—missing markers, loose crickets, and stolen scales. Campus security blames the mysterious janitor Polk, but even though Andi agrees he’s acting suspicious, she can’t believe the gentle old man would do anything illegal. Then one prank goes too far and their chemistry professor is injured by an explosion in the lab, upping the stakes of the investigation. Andi and Colin must unravel the secrets behind the chemistry department and Polk’s dark past before danger closes the camp for good.

In Andi Under Pressure, we meet up again with Andi and her friend, Colin Carter, as they go to Discovery Camp...where things start going missing. Andi and Colin are back to investigating again. (So I don't spoil anything, I'll just stop there.)
My daughter (age 11) really enjoyed reading Andi Under Pressure (even more than she liked Andi Unexpected). She has already re-read it multiple times. When I asked her what she liked about the book, she said, "the adventure". She said she would recommend it to both boys and girls in the 8-12 age range.
