Trading Secrets by Melody Carlson


I received an arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

My Rating:4 Stars

Micah received an amish pen pal in fifth grade and they have been writing each under for six years under the disguise that Micah is a boy. When Zack wants to come visit Micah in the city she struggles with how to tell him the embarrassing truth that all of these years his pen pal was really a girl . Zack is unable to make his trip to the city in the end because of help needed at the farm. When Zack invites Micah out to his farm to help with the crops she goes dressed as a boy with hopes to tell Zack in private her secret. The fall out that happens when Zack finds out Miach is a girl threatens their friendship. Miach is forced to stay a few days until her father can come get her and learns a lot about living simply and what it takes to be a good amish woman -which is definitely not what she wants. Zack is harboring secrets of his own to gain an education and have a life outside of being an amish farmer. A really good story and I liked the ending!
