Ten-year-old Rachel is driving her Amish friends and family "buggy" with her lack of patience. Her attempts to control every situation bring her trouble at every turn-from sledding into a creek to scorching a yummy shoo-fly pie, to flunking a test in school, to being dragged facedown in the snow. Can Grandpa's wise words regarding patience get through to Rachel? Or will she spend the winter getting into more trouble than her Lancaster County family and schoolmates can handle? What will it take to teach Rachel that there are some things she just can't control? Recommended for ages 7 to 10.

New York Times bestselling author, Wanda E. Brunstetter became fascinated with the Amish way of life when she first visited her husband's Mennonite relatives living in Pennsylvania. Wanda and her husband, Richard, live in Washington State but take every opportunity to visit Amish settlements throughout the States, where they have many Amish friends.
My opinion on this book is -- out of one through ten, with ten being the best -- I would rate it a nine. This book, “Out of Control,” by Wanda E. Brunstetter, was one of the best books I have ever read in my entire life. It was like a rollercoaster that kept going up and down -- in a good way.
