Amanda on the Danube: The Sounds of Music
by Darlene Foster

Purchase copies here

Darlene Foster writes middle grade novels about two plucky girls, Amanda Ross, and Leah Anderson, best friends from different continents. These intrepid travellers visit different places around the world and solve mysteries. Foster puts in considerable travelling and research to ensure that the details she writes about are authentic. Not only are readers entertained by great mysteries with a touch of suspense, they learn about different geography and history. If you haven’t read one of these books yet, you should change that.

In this book, Amanda convinces her parents to join Mr and Mrs Anderson on a cruise on the Danube river. The two girls end up sharing their own room on board the ship, which gives them more autonomy. It’s a pretty exciting opportunity for two girls who are on the cusp of adolescence.

Congratulations Darlene!

Thanks so much and thanks for reblogging!

Congratulations for earning this great review. Sharing is caring!

Thanks, Marian. The blogging community is so supportive.

Such a great mystery. I would have loved Darlene’s series as a tween.

Thanks, Patricia. We can still be tweens at times!

Jumped over from the Senior Salon
How wonderful to be able to post a review of one of your books on this week’s Salon, Darlene. Congratulations! I rarely come in contact with tweens, but I now know of several books to recommend to their mothers and grandmothers!

I am always surprised at how many adults enjoy my books as well. I guess we are all kids at heart!! Thanks for commenting on my review! ❤

You are most welcome, and I believe you are right – the best children’s books are fun for their parents when they read aloud.

How lovely Darlene, and very well deserved praise.

Thanks so much Barbara!

Excellent! As one of your readers above said, how I wish I had this book when I was a middle-schooler. ❤

Love the cover on the New Mexico book Darlene. The Day of the Dead skulls are perfect. ~James

Glad you like the cover. My publisher does such a great job of everything, especially the covers.
