    One thought on “Sammy Keyes and the Search for Snake Eyes”

    1. My least favorite Sammy Keyes so far It s mature and dangerous rather than inspiring and clever Teen pregnancy, gangs, set ups, graffiti, violent kidnappings, and murders are not dealt with in a fairly bleak picture.A gang banger girl running from a guy shoves a bag in Sammy s hands at the mall which turns out to have a baby in it Sammy s challenges with the baby and trying to survive at school are enjoyable However, Sammy is stupidly brave in this one, snooping on a gang leader who eventually [...]

    2.

    6. I think this one is my least favorite in the series I felt Sammy was reckless and not a good role model for kids who follow Sammy Keyes books It was actually very dangerous what Sammy did I know I wouldn t have done it even as an adult It also made me really angry that I wanted to throw the book across the room when Sammy Marissa were trying to tell everyone they were innocent of the crime and yet, once again, no one would listen to them Yeah I know this is only a made up story, but honestly wha [...]

    7. Sammy Keyes is on the case again.While at the mall, a scared girl leaves a bag with Sammy and tells her she will be back at 7 p.m to get it The problem is what is in the bag takes minding than what Sammy expected And the girl is totally petrified of the evil looking guy that is following her A guy that has snake eyes and a jaw like steel, with a menacing and reptilian appearance that makes your skin crawl.When the girl doesn t show up at the time she said, it is up to Sammy to find out where sh [...]

    9.

    10. When I reviewed book number 6 in this series S.K the Hollywood Mummy I liked it just fine, but found Hollywood a little bit too glitzy and unreal to feel like natural, good old Sammyland Maybe the author had the same thought and decided to go gritty this time, and oh boy Talk about overcompensating Teenage pregnancy, child neglect, gang violence, murder, sadistic kidnapping The fun and lightheartedness of these books are hard to mix in between things like that No wonder then that the story bogs [...]

    11. Sammy is in the arcade with her friend Marissa trying to get her mind off of the upcoming softball tournament when she meets a girl not much older than herself who looks absolutely terrified When she tries to help she ends up with the girl s bag after being told not to go to the police and finds a baby inside When the girl does not return like she said she would, Sammy must find the mother before it is too late To make matters worse, her archnemesis Heather is trying to frame her and get Sammy k [...]

    12. I really like the Sammy Keyes books Of course, they are totally unbelievable, but they re fun and exciting In this one Sammy is handed a sack by a girl while she s in the mall The girl is hiding from a totally evil man who has a striking snake tattoo on his arm She tells Sammy to meet her at 7 p.m When Sammy picks up the sack, it s really heavy She looks inside and findsa baby Well, of course, the mother never shows up Although the police are looking, Sammy is a lot smarter than the police, and [...]

    13. Sammy s best friend Marissa wants to know how she gets into these things They re just hanging at the video arcade Marissa s just finished her game and turns to see Sammy holding the bag that a girl told her to hold because she was afraid some creepy guy was going to kill her Now the girl that handed Sammy the bag has disappeared leaving them, two seventh graders, with a bag full of baby And, as they eventually discover, not any baby, but the son of a member of the notorious South West gang.

    14. The thing that first drew me to Sammy was her intelligence and spunky personality She gets herself into terrible situations, then uses her brains to work it out I was a little disappointed in this book when she seemed to get into bad situations not by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but by making bad decisions.In spite of that, I still enjoy the books and will keep reading them.

    15. I learned that sammys soccer team wants to win the game and all sammy wants is to score as much points for her team to win the game,and after they win the game sammy sees a snake that has eyes that look weird and sammy thinks that if she ever has snake eyes people would look at her and say that she looks nice I like this book because this book is my favorite one from all the books that i ve read in my whole life.

    16. I extremely enjoy reading the Sammy Keyes series I have read almost all except for the Hollywood Mummy, i would have to say my favorite would be this one so far because of all the excitement, and back and forth with the mystery The whole time i been reading this book i been craving to see what was going to happen next, or to see exactly who the culprit was i give this book a 10 10 and i would most defiantly recommend this book to anyone that is into the mystery series.

    17. Van Draanen artfully deals with several issues in the real world in her books, as well as incorporating a fantastic mystery in every book and dealing with the ins and outs of middle school This book she did another fantastic job She subtly illustrated the difficulty of teen pregnancy and street gangs while still creating a complex mystery Incredible author and an incredible book.

    18. Another awesome adventure with Sammy This one involves a baby, which causes Sammy to confront some feelings about her mother and ponder what life would be as a teen mom Throw in a softball tournament, gangs, a villain with a snake eyes tattoo and that rotten Heather Acosta and you ve got a pretty great mystery.

    19. It was the first Sammy Keyes book I read My dad found it for at a consignment shop I loved the twist on a detective Sammy doesn t have to out of school like Nancy Drew, she does things her own way Even without having read the other books, I had a good sense of the story after only the first ten pages.

    20. I couldnt beleive that someone could actually be shaking to death The scariest thing in this book yo me is how Wendalin Van Draanen described Raymond Ramirez or snake eyes I coudnt even picture him I could picture snake eyes but steel for a mouth Not likely but I still loved everything It was a horrific but very good book I loved it I feel like the Sammy Keyes series could go on forever.

    21. Sammy has done some growing up since the first volume in the series Also, she has become human as her flaws are evident I mean, who doesn t like babies The story is well done, perhaps not as good as the first one in the series, but still an enjoyable read, and very timely as it deals with gangs.Fifth and sixth grade readers should find it engaging.

    22. I didn t even know this was a series just found it at a book sale and started reading it It s fast paced and exciting as 7th grader Sammy plunges into the dangerous, gang filled world of Tigertown, propelled by a Sears bag left in her care by a terrified girl with strange scars on her arm A couple uses of profanity but not too prevalent I want to read in this series.

    23. Calling all of you who love MYSTERIES Sammy Keyes is an awesome series Sammy short for Samantha lives with her grandma in a retirement community That means that Sammy has to sneak in and out of the building by the fire escape because kids are not allowed In this book, Sammy gets mixed up with an abandoned baby and a gang Sammy is a gutsy kid you ll really root for her

    24. I JUST.I JUST CAN T THIS HAS GOTTEN ME MINDBLOWNEDD IM TRYING TO EXPLAIN PART OF IT TO MY SISTER AND IM JUST LIKE STUTTERING AND JUST CAN T GET MY SHIT TOGETHERFG OMFG OMFG IM SQUEALING BUT IM PANICKING AND I FELT LIKE MY HEART NEVER WILL STOP BUT THATS A GOOD THING CAUSE IM IN LIVING WILD MWHAHAHA.

    25. Listening to this audio book and others in this series with my children has started discussions about big topics The topics have included gangs, drugs, personal safety, lying, stealing, homelessness, and others They are really great books for tweens and I m enjoying them again, too Sammy and her friends are adventurous and funny.

    26. Once again, a fun, engaging read that deals with mature enough issues someone outside the middle school age range can enjoy it This is probably the first Sammy book that really grabbed my attention almost right off the bat Lots of tense, exciting sequences as Sammy tries to solve her latest mystery view spoiler Last line I guess we ll just see where it takes me hide spoiler

    27. Good book for older elementary or MS kids We listened to it in the car on a road trip and all of us enjoyed it, even my husband Some gang and mature themes but nothing too crazy Good mystery and plot Funny, too.

    28. This series is just adorable I am so happy that my library overdrive system got a bunch new audiobooks so I can listen to them It has been several years since I read the first 6 and am pleased to have the next several in the lineup I recommend this series to everyone

    29. Sammy Keyes continues to be extremely appealing incredibly readable, but she also continues to get into serious territory This book deals with gangs, Sammy has some very serious confrontations with the dark side of life.
