Review: Trading Secrets by:Melody Carlson

 Trading Secrets
About the Book:
Back in fifth grade, Micah Knight got an Amish pen pal, and over the years, they've exchanged many letters--and many secrets. At age seventeen, Micah finally has the chance to meet her pen pal face-to-face. The only problem is that because of confusion about her name when the pen pals were assigned, her pen pal was a boy, Zack Miller. And all this time, Micah's never told Zack that she's actually a girl! While she wants nothing more than to experience life on Zack's Amish farm, she's afraid he'll hate her for deceiving him all these years. But she makes up her mind to face the music--and that's where the fun really begins.

My Review:
 After growing close to her Amish pen pal Zach, Micah Knight hates to know that he wants to visit soon. It's not that she hates him, its just that she harbors a very big secret that will definitely change their friendship for sure. Visiting his family's farm seems more difficult than she had imagined at first. The Amish are much different than an typical English family. So its decided that she will help with the planting after she arrives, but what really makes her swoon is her pen pal is way more cuter in person and that makes this trip even more difficult.

 Melody Carlson is a multifaceted writer, she has written several different types of books. But the one thing that remains and is a common thread, is each book seems to be a great stand alone book with tons of personality! If you would like to learn more, you can at this link.
