Short Stories May 24, 2009
I was surprised by the format of this book which deviates from other Beverly Lewis books. It is a series of short stories featuring the main character, Merry. I was also surprised that it was for preteens and early teens. When I purchased the book, I did not see it listed for youth, and it should have been. The stories are good stories about encouraging teenagers to make good decisions, helping neighbors and doing the right thing.
I Little Different but I liked it! Mar 19, 2009
With Beverly Lewis, you know it's going to be eye catching. You can count on consistent solid Amish portrayals in all of her characters. This book is different in that the main character is not Amish. She is, rather, a girl who lives in Amish territory who has Amish friends. This book is also different because it isn't one continuous plot but several short stories within one text. It kept me entertained, and the characters in all the plots are related in enough of a fashion to tie the whole book together. Thanks, Beverly, for another good read.
GREAT READING FOR ADULTS TOO Mar 3, 2009
I didn't realize when I purchased this book that it was written for teens. But, I'm so glad I didn't know that because I might have missed an excellent read. If you enjoy reading about happenings among the Amish, this one won't disappoint you, though it is written from the perspective of a 15-year old "English" girl living in Lancaster County, PA. Her relationship with her Amish neighbors will leave you wishing you had an Amish family next door, too. I would highly recommend this book. I've just ordered the sequel...book 2...and can't wait for it to arrive.
