I received a copy of Trading Secrets by Melody Carlson from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Micah and her Amish pen pal, Zach, have been trading secrets since fifth grade. Now that they plan to meet face-to-face, she'll have to admit the one secret she's never shared.
This is the first book about the Amish I've read. I wasn't sure what to expect. Micah has been writing to Zach since they were in fifth grade. They're both 18 now and want to meet face to face. The problem is that Zach thinks Micah is a boy. When Zach invites Micah to send a few days over spring bread with him on his farm she takes him up on his offer and dresses like a boy. She revels her secret and not surprisingly is not warmly welcomed by this family. She does win his Dad over by helping him plant corn. Zach's Mom is another story. The more time Micah spends on the farm with Zach the more she finds out he's not happy being a farmer. When she finally gets a ride home Zach goes along. He then finds out that being "English" isn't all he thought it would be. He now has to figure out if he wants to go back home and farm or not.
