In Pamela Raymer's first Sam and Alex book, two young sisters, Samantha (Sam), and Alexandra (Alex) get caught up in a war waged on another planet.


Sam is picked to help Enella, a perture (a person and creature) fight evil on Enella’s planet. Using skills learned from her dad, a combat veteran who was killed in action and with the help of Alex and their pal Will, she takes on the evil force there. They are all shocked to learn what this evil force really is.


Sam is smart with unrecognized leadership abilities. Alex is a bubbly girl with a distinctive sense of style but one of her best attributes is her PG skill—her Phoniness Gauge, an ability to assess people based on a phoniness scale. They are a formidable team.


This story is one of confident, smart, and strong girls told with intrigue and depth. It is a study of character, loss, victory and the importance of family.

About Book 1:

Enella's Mission

"Kid Endorsements - They love the book!"

Jocelyn (16)

"I was very pleased with this book. The character’s daily actions in the beginning of the book can relate to any teen or preteen. Sam’s friendship with Enella is very unique… makes you want to keep reading to see what happens next.

When Sam was trying to figure out what the noise was, I didn’t expect it to be the creature it was. The very vivid description instantly created a clear vision in my head of what it was. It’s a great story, and Ms. Pamela Raymer, is a fantastic writer! I would love to see more from her."

Mia (10 ½)

"This book has an amazing way of expressing both Sam and Alex. Enella is a character that even though she is from another planet I like that she talks just like a normal person. It was a great book…"

Katelyn (9)

"I really like how you explained the characters and that it is realistic. I also like how it is family friendly."

Tabi (12)
"I really like your book…I also really liked Enella. She is very fun and I like how she just appears."

Pawlina (10)

"I like this book because it has lots of details and I like the story because I liked the characters. My favorite character was Enella!

Alessandra (14)

"It's very creative and unique. I have to say it’s quite interesting."


About Book 2: Creature Invasion

Samantha (Sam), and Alexandra (Alex) are two sisters whose dad was killed in action while serving in the military. These girls use the leadership skills he taught them to fight evil on earth and on other planets.


With the help of Enella, a perture (a person and a creature) and her deputy, Rexor from the planet Afwon, they work to eliminate evil that shows up while Sam and Alex are on a family trip in Wyoming. They have already rid Afwon of its evil force, and now Enella returns and brings Rexor to help them save the earth.


Sam and Alex along with their friends, Will and Brody, transport between earth and the planet Nexmore to uncover this evil and destroy it. This story is one of confident and smart girls who "Strong Up" to protect all that is important to them--their family, friends and freedom.


This book will fascinate young people with an outrageously wild mix of animal characters in the form of pertures, and inspire girls and boys to do good. Educators and parents can use its themes of family, character, loss and leadership to encourage young people to set and achieve seemingly unattainable goals.
