As a high school literacy teacher, I read a whole lot of Young Adult literature, and especially romance, as that's what a lot of my girls love. I have to say, Rumspringa, is one of my favorites. Liam and Sarah's relationship is sweet, and realistic. The alternating points of view really move the story along and allow the reader unique insight into the lives of Amish teenagers. The story allows you to learn quite a bit about the Amish culture, without feeling like you're reading a textbook. This book would be great for kids 7th grade and up. It has just enough steam to keep them interested without being inappropriate.

Overall, a great, quick read and a wonderful sophomore effort from this talented author.

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.

I would not recommend this book for children. It was okay. The writing style was stilted and needs improvement. The story was predictable and unrealistic for the most part

I absolutely love this novel. It really hits home for me. I am from Indiana and live twenty minutes from the author's hometown. This book makes me want more. Sad stoy but works out well in the end.

I loved this book. The character description and extra background information makes you feel like you're part of the book. I could not put it down, and was really hoping for more. I hope the author has plans for part 2!

Rumspringa by Cari Ouweneel

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.

When I started reading this story it took a few chapters to get used to it. I loved the connection with the characters and how easy it was to relate to Sarah. I will definitely read this again. Beautifully written and put together

I enjoyed this book very much, especially since I find the topic of Amish people living among our world, and the differences of their culture and ours, fascinating. This story explores those differences through a sweet love story between an Amish girl and a non-Amish boy who has grown in a hardened life. I thought good characterization of the main characters,...and i like the style she uses of alternating points of view between the 2 main charters, so you see first hand what is going on in each of their heads. Though i can often figure out how a story's plot is going to unfold,I will say there were a few surprises in this story! When the story ended, it definitely left me wanting more...will there be a part two???.
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!
