Samantha Spinner and the Super-Secret Plans

Samantha Spinner and the Super-Secret Plans

by Russell Ginns

For fans of Mr. Lemoncello’s Library and the Secret series, and classics like Holes and The Westing Game, the first book in a hilarious new series about a girl, her brother, and some super-big globe-trotting adventures.

Samantha Spinner’s Uncle Paul disappeared, and here’s what he left:

* Samantha’s sister got a check for $2,400,000,000.

* Samantha’s brother got the New York Yankees.

* And Samantha got a rusty red umbrella with a tag hanging off its worn handle. The tag says “Watch out for the RAIN.”

Thanks a lot, Uncle Paul.

After all the strawberry waffles, stories, and puzzles they’ve shared, how could he just leave without saying goodbye? And what is the meaning of that mysterious message?

The answer is simple. Sam knows in her heart that Uncle Paul is in danger. And if he taught her anything, it’s that not everything is exactly what it seems. Which is why we should pay close attention to that rusty red umbrella.

The RAIN is coming and Samantha Spinner is about to find herself mixed up in some super-important, super-dangerous, super-secret plans.

And don’t miss what happens next to Samantha, Nipper, and Dennis in Samantha Spinner and the Spectacular Specs!
