Amanda is back in an all-new adventure, but this time, it’s on her turf! Leah (Amanda’s friend) has come all the way from England to visit Amanda in her province of Alberta, Canada. Everything goes well, until a rodeo clown drops a strange stone. Amanda picks it up, and tries to return it to the clown, but she was too late – he was gone. The stone was round and had a marking on it. Suddenly, people seem to be wanting the stone urgently, although their purposes may be unclear – and maybe even dangerous!

This is a marvelous book, one that made me feel like I was there with Amanda and Leah. Ms. Foster really has a way of taking you through the landmarks…

Congratulations Marsha and thank you to everyone for reading the posts, commenting and entering the draw.

A huge thank you to Cassandra for featuring me. It was an honour to be the featured author for September.

Speaking of September, where it go? It certainly flew by for me, but ended well. I spent the last Sunday of the month at Y’s Books in Vancouver presenting my latest book.  The cosy book store provided an intimate setting. A lively crowd attended and asked great questions. We all  had a lot of fun on a sunny fall Vancouver afternoon.  Thanks Y’s Books for making me feel so welcome and for providing quality books for the community.

Lynn says:

If you haven’t met Amanda before, you’ll need to know she is a twelve-year-old, adventurous, travel-loving girl who seems to find mysteries wherever she goes. This time in Amanda in Alberta: The Writing on the Stone, not evening the one leaving home she still gets involved in a situation.
