My Amish Boyfriend by Melody Carlson
Melody Carlson is back with another Amish YA novel. Her Amish books are the only ones that I can bear to read anymore. The others are so predictable. Melody draws the reader in and you experience the story along with the characters, they come alive in your mind and you begin to feel concern for them. This is - in my opinion - the work of a true artist.
This book, at 265 pages, was a quick and easy read. I enjoyed watching as Shannon learned what love is and what it isn't. I also found this quote in the book that made me pause:
"It was good....a happy memory never wears out." What a beautiful line!
Here's the back cover so you can learn more about the story. Melody is a master at fiction for all ages, but her YA stuff is something special. I love sharing her books with my favorite teenage reader and can't wait to pass this one along too.
This book was provided for review by Revel.
Here's another series that your YA readers might be interested in:
Melody is an author that you can trust.
