A Summer Secret By Kathleen Fuller
This book intrigued me, because I know the area that it is set in. Mary Beth and Johnny are the main characters, a 13- year-old Amish girl and her twin brother. Young Mary Beth found an old, abandoned barn to be her refuge- but she couldn’t let her parents know about it, because it wasn’t considered to be safe. Then one day, she realizes that she isn’t the only one who uses the barn- but who is this mysterious person? Will she ever find out? And is it her brother Johnny who is reading her secret diary? Or is it the stranger?
Over all, I would recommend this book, especially for preteens. It gives a picture into the lives and culture of an Amish family without being overly dramatized and sensationalized. It teaches values that are useful for anyone, not just the Amish.
