Samantha Sanderson - Without A Trace by Robin Caroll is the fourth installment of the Samantha Sanderson series.
Seventh grader, Samantha Sanderson is a high-tech cheerleader  that works for her school paper. She wants to become the editor and works tirelessly researching articles to submit. She aspires to become a famous award-winning journalist like her mother.  Her father is a police officer. Samantha often gets ideas from real-life police investigations.

One day after school, Samantha's friend, Tam Lee disappears after many days of being absent from middle-school. The police believe he is a runaway.  Sam disagrees because she knows Tam is smart, mature and very responsible. The police question her whole family at home. Sam tries to share theories concerning his disappearance but the Sheriff's Department brush it off.  Sam and her friend, Makayla, work together to find clues pertaining to Tam Lee's disappearance. Did Tam Lee really runaway? Who was the last person to see Tam? Can the girls find him? Will Sam solve this case and get her next big mystery story?

My 10-year old daughter, Summer enjoyed tackling her first mystery novel from Faithgirlz.  If you are unfamiliar or behind on the Samantha Sanderson series, please look previous Samantha Sanderson books: Samantha Sanderson At the Movies, Samantha Sanderson On the Scene and Samantha Sanderson Off the Record.
