Overall, a great, quick read and a wonderful sophomore effort from this talented author.
I will go with 3 stars.
Oh where to start... Well, lets start with the general idea. ** A terrible accident leaves Chicago native Liam Miller homeless and without his family. When he moves to the middle of Indiana Amish country to serve probation for drug possession, the last thing he expects is to fall in love with the innocent Sarah Yoder, a heartfelt Amish teen beginning to question her faith in the midst of rumspringa- when Amish youth are permitted to relinquish the strict rules of the Ordung, in an attempt to find their mates. Sarah finds herself irresistibly drawn to the wild, free and naturally artistic punker. But Liam is hardly the young man Sarah's parents had in mind for her... **
The book starts out well, took me a chapter or two to get into it but once I was in I was hooked. Liam is what seems to be a gothic punk rock kid with a mind of his own, not the typical pretty boy type, but good looking in his own punk rock way. He is surrounded by tragedy and drug addiction and strives to just "get by" with his brother by his side.
After moving to Indiana he finds himself beginning to change and for the better. He meets a very proper Amish girl named Sarah and begins to establish a friendship with her... Sarah of course finds this new boy refreshing and wants to explore her interest in him... The love connection between the two main characters is very cute and very young. It makes you remember those butterflies and feelings that you got when you were first falling in love. **Sigh**
I rather enjoyed the way the author introduces you to the Amish lifestyle. It was refreshing to me to have a book immerse you into another kind of life that I personally have no experience with or in reading about.Read more ›
One caveat.There is a tastefully sweet scene that descricribes the sexual act between the two lovers, which makes me wonder what age is this appropriate for.. i dont really know these days what age kids understand these things....Im guessing i would allow my daughter to read this when she is 16. if in doubt..parents, teachers, ...read it first! As well as being very entertaining, this story allows the reader to glimpse at another world that exist now in America, which I find educational and interesting.I hope the author writes more stories like this!

It had very wrong language to be Amish and Christian reading. I didn't even finish the first chapter when I removed it from my kindle.Published on November 19, 2013 by Angeljo

This book was a Romeo and Juliet kind of story. It provides a great story line with some views of the Amish life.Published on July 21, 2013 by Gabby
