Short Book Description:

The truth may set you free–but it might also land you in some uncomfortably hot water.

Over the years, Micah Knight has exchanged many letters–and many secrets–with her longtime Amish pen pal, Zach. But Micah’s kept quiet on the biggest secret of all–the fact that despite her name, she’s a girl.

Now Micah finally has the chance to meet her pen pal face-to-face. She wants nothing more than to experience life on Zach’s Amish farm, but she’s more than a little anxious. Will he be angry at her for deceiving him all these years? And will she risk losing his friendship to find something more?

My Thoughts:

It took me about 2 hours to read this book from start to finish, that’s how captivating it was. I haven’t finished a book that quickly in a long time.

Although about the Amish, it wasn’t really about them, if that makes any sense. It’s based on the friendship between an English girl and Amish boy. I found the book really humorous as well as inspirational. It had the perfect amount of ‘deepness’ to it and was balanced with lightness.

Having read a number of Melody’s works, but never any of her Amish ones, I was really looking forward to this one. I was not disappointed at all. I have decided to get the rest of her Amish books.

This was well written and plotted. I haven’t read a story like this one before and I’m happy to say that this one is going to sit on my shelf for a very long time. The only thing that I didn’t like was the ending. I really hope that there will be news about sequel as the book ending a bit abruptly for me.
