It seems like everything is going wrong for Rachel after her best friend Mary moves away and a new girl named Audra takes her place, and she takes her unhappiness out on those around her.

Publishers Description
Spring has sprung And ten-year-old Rachel Yoder is filled with the hope of good things to come. But then she learns that her best friend is moving away. What will she do without her? When a new girl named Audra shows up at the Amish schoolhouse, Rachel soon finds herself with a stinky sandwich, a mud-spattered dress, a sore nose, and a rotten attitude. As things go from bad to worse, Rachel gets grumpier and grumpier. If she doesn't soon find a way to forgive others, she'll be in danger of losing more than one friend. Is there any way Rachel can make a new beginning?

More About Wanda E. Brunstetter

Wanda E Brunstetter Wanda Brunstetter is an award-winning romance novelist who has led millions of readers to lose their heart in the Amish life. She is the author of almost 50 books with more than 5 million copies sold. Many of her books have landed on the top bestseller lists, including the New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly, CBA, ECPA, and CBD. Wanda is considered one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre, and her work has been covered by national publications, including Time Magazine and USA Today. Wanda’s fascination with the Amish culture developed when she met her husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church, and whose family has a Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Meeting her new Mennonite sister-in-laws caused Wanda to yearn for the simpler life. In their travels, she and her husband have become close friends with many Amish people across America. Wanda’s desire to explore their culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith. All of Wanda’s novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Many of her books are well-read and trusted by the Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs. Wanda’s primary attraction to the Amish is their desire to live a devout Christian life that strives to honor God, work hard, and maintain close family ties. Whenever she visits her Amish friends, Wanda finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties, which is in stark contrast to the chaos and busyness that plagues so many modern “Englishers.” Time and time again, Wanda loses her heart in the Amish life, and she hopes her readers will, too.

Rachel's friend, Mary, had to move with her family to another state. Rachel is devastated. Will she quit moping around? Can their friendship last in spite of the distance between them?
I have been a fan of Brunstetter for years. Now tweens and teens can read her wonderful work. This wholesome book will thrill the young lady in your life. She will enjoy learning of the differences and similarities between the English life and the Amish life of youth. This would make a great gift.

A glimpse into Amish society   Aug 12, 2008
Reviewed by Brianne Plach (age 10) for Reader Views (7/08)

Have you ever had a bad day? Rachel Yoder sure did. Every day she gets in trouble. When her best friend and cousin Mary leaves for Indiana, a new girl named Audra Burkholder from Ohio arrives. Even receiving a faceless doll from Mary doesn't seem to help Rachel with her loneliness problems. Rachel Yoder doesn't think there is a chance that she and Audra could someday get along with each other. Worse yet, then Audra moves to Rachel's best friend's desk. Rachel is so crabby after Mary leaves. Orlie used to be Rachel's friend, but since the whole lunchbox dilemma, he isn't anymore.

Rachel is bitten by the green-eyed monster. She is envious of Audra's friends. It seems like Rachel is losing all her friends to Audra. Rachel is dealing with a lot of anger since her friend Mary moved. Nobody seems to like her anymore. Is there a way that Audra and Rachel could ever become friends rather than rivals?

Wanda E. Brunstetter has created a book for young readers dealing with her favorite subjects. She has written many books about the Amish society; it's exciting to see that she now writes books for younger readers too. Ms. Brunstetter has an easy-to-understand writing style. She includes a glossary of words from the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect and their meanings to help young readers understand the book more.

"New Beginnings" shows a glimpse into Amish society and how, even if your best friend moves away, you can always make new ones.
