7th Grader ​Sam Heidleman lives a pretty normal life – when she’s not being bullied for her Down Syndrome. She volunteers, plays on the basketball team, and solves mysteries!

Don’t miss out on this episode where Sam’s instincts are put into high gear when she sees one of her friends being bullied and winds up in a huge mystery!

Hott Review:

We Spy is a terrific beginning to a series! I really enjoyed Sam and love how the family spends it’s time together and volunteering. It’s a great book for kids to see how important both of those things are.
This book is written for middle-graders that aren’t avid readers. There is a slower pace and more explanation than is needed for those that love reading. It’s perfect for my daughter who, though a middle-grader, prefers childrens books because they’re more inclined to explain important things and not include unnecessary details.
