When Samantha stays at Piney Point with her family, she never dreams what will happen. Her mother died many years ago, but she always loved to spend time at Piney Point with her friends just like Samantha. But when she finds her mother's old sketchbook, she becomes interested. Where did her mom draw all the pictures of Samantha and her father, who also died, when she was a baby? Trying to understand her past, Samantha and her two cousins go to Teardrop Island, the place where the mystery pictures were drawn. Their grandma forbids them to go, but they go anyway. But when they get stuck on the island, they get scared and realize they shouldn't have gone. I liked this book, but it was more of a little-kid book than I expected it to be!

They also had a picnic there. Then it starts to rain and they try to go find their canoe but they couldn't.

I think this is the best of the Samantha books. Samantha is spending the summer at the lake with her grandmother and her cousins. She is searching for information on her parents and her search leads her to Chocolate Drop Island where her parents drowned in a boating accident. At first Samantha is amazed by the beauty of the place, but while trying to return from the island during a storm she understands what her parents must have endured. Just a great book overall.

It feels like you are in the book with them and it is exciting, brave, and sad. It is about a young girl that travels to tear drop island where her parents died trying to get there. Her two twin cousins go with her to explore the island and when they try to get back they get caught in the storm

Samantha saves the day

by: Valerie Tripp

The story I read was about a young orphan and her wealthy grandmother on summer vacation at Piney Point. One day at Piney Point Samantha's friends Agatha and Agnes came to visit her at Piney Point along with their mother Cornelia their, father Gard, and an old man named Admiral Archibald Beemis. Admiral does his usual asking Grandmary to marry him, but she turns him down. Every day the girls go swimming and hiking. On a rainy day the girls did whatever they could without having to be in the rain, but soon they run out of ideas so they set up their easels and began to paint. After a while they start to question on what the others were painting. Then Agatha suggests that there may be something wrong with the brushes. So they go up into the attic to look for some paintbrushes. Instead they stumble among some fancy old fashion hats and gloves. Then Samantha finds an old sketchbook that belonged to her mother. Once Agatha and Agnes saw how beautiful Samantha's mother's painted description of Teardrop Island they wanted to go there immediately, but Samantha was against that. Samantha decides to go there just to remember. When they get there everything seems to be fine they went to every site from the sketchbook. They swam in the waterfall and went to the big rock. But when they find out that their boat has drifted off and that they're stranded it became a nightmare.

The reason Samantha was against that was because her parents droned coming from Teardrop Island. Immediately Samantha said no. The twins asked her why she didn't want to go such a beautiful place and she told them about her dreadful past. The twins felt bad for Samantha. After the moment of silence they finished looking through the sketchbook.
