Revell presents Trading Secrets by Melody Carlson

Trading Secrets (Nov 15th – 22nd) 

The truth may set you free–but it might also land you in some uncomfortably hot water.

Over the years, Micah Knight has exchanged many letters–and many secrets–with her longtime Amish pen pal, Zach. But Micah’s kept quiet on the biggest secret of all–the fact that despite her name, she’s a girl.

Now Micah finally has the chance to meet her pen pal face-to-face. She wants nothing more than to experience life on Zach’s Amish farm, but she’s more than a little anxious. Will he be angry at her for deceiving him all these years? And will she risk losing his friendship to find something more?

Another really fun and entertaining read for the younger generation from Melody Carlson. Zach and Micah have been writing to each other since the 5th grade, but had never met. The two penpals had the chance to meet when Zach invited Micah to come stay with his family. There was only one problem. Micah has been deceiving Zach all these years, because Zach thinks Micah is a he, but it turns out, his friend is a she. What will his Amish family say when they find out?

You can’t put this book down because you want to see what happens with these two young people. Micah sure had an interesting time in Zach’s home, being they thought all these years she was a he! But that is what makes this story so different and so enjoyable and exciting. You will grow to love the characters as you continue reading Zach and Micah’s story. And it is interesting to see how Micah adjusts to the Amish lifestyle, and what Zach thinks of the way Micah’s family lives. Would either of them be willing to completely change their way of living? For me, I think it would be interesting to get to know an Amish family, though I don’t know if I could change from the way I have lived my life. But it would be a good experience. I think you should give this book a try, and you will enjoy it very much. And if you have a teenager in your household, or you life, this would be a wonderful book for them to read.
