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!

Rumspringa is a poignant story of adolescents from different worlds. Sarah was born and raised in the Amish tradition while Liam struggles with the wreckage left by his drug-addicted mother.

Every great book illustrates a universal truth, and Rumspringa delivers via the paradox between the main characters' starkly varied backgrounds. The expectation is that Sarah is utterly sheltered amid rolling farm fields and home-baked bread. Conversely, Liam should be an unapologetic criminal. Both situations reflect the reality of each character's experience. And yet the opposite is also true.

I loved it.

As it turns out, I'm just a sucker for a good love story -- and Rumspringa is just that!

A quick YA read (good for more mature YA readers), Rumspringa offers a backyard twist to the traditional "forbidden romance" story, and the excitement and suspense of Liam and Sarah's romance captivated my attention. Relatable and entertaining, this book reaches past simple "boy meets (Amish) girl" to touch on subjects like family, society's influence, snap judgements, tragedy, and forgiveness.

Well done!

Compelling story of conflicting cultures and finding one's way. Believable characters and living conditions that too many youth experience. It begs for a sequel....

This book was a Romeo and Juliet kind of story. It provides a great story line with some views of the Amish life.
