Product Description

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.

    Trading Secrets is another great book from Melody Carlson. It tells the story of pen-pals for 6 years who are finally meeting. The only problem being is that Amish Zack does not realize his English Micah is female. It leads to many comic and serious situations that test their friendship. I continue to look forward to reading more books from this author.

    I received the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Melody has a way of writing Amish books. I kind of got burnt out on the old boy meets girl Amish romance, but her books are intriguing and interesting! This one in particular kept me reading and turning pages til the very end!

    Micah Knight has had an Amish pen-pal since grade school. Nothing too strange about that, right? Well, actually it is a little odd. This Amish kid - well actually he is 18 now -is a boy. Most boys don't like to write, but Zach does. And he enjoys most of the same things Micah does- flying, baseball, bikes, etc.. And although their lives are completely different they have been writing for years and have grown quite a close friendship.

    Zach's latest letter has just revealed that he is going to be coming for a visit. Their first meeting!! Micah should be all excited, because this is a dream come true, except....

    Micah is a girl!!! And Zach has no idea!!!

    Now honestly, I feel like too much else said will totally ruin the plot!

    How does she reveal her secret? How does Zach react? Will they still be friends?

    This book is fun and easy to read. At best it took me a couple days, and that was doing my regular routine along with it, or I probably could have read it in one. The plot is interesting and witty. Melody keeps you guessing pretty much through the whole book. The ending is quite unexpected.

    Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    This book would be a great teen read.

    I received this book from the author and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions are my own and I was not asked to review this book positively.

    What's In a Name?

    This review was written for Trading Secrets - eBook.
    What's in a name is a quote from Shakespear's Rome and Juliet. But it also is a very appropriate question that applies to Melody Carlson's Trading Secrets. The name is Micah. Obviously a boy's name, right? Wrong. And thus begins Trading Secrets. The name mixup is about to come full circle when Micah Knight has the opportunity to meet Zach Miller, the Amish boy that she's been pen pals with for the last five years. The only problem is that Zach believes his pen pal is a boy. So, when Micah has the opportunity to meet her pen pal face-to-face, and spend a few days helping out on his family's farm, her secret is finally out. This causes some interesting events to occur, most of which will have you smiling or laughing. And once you think you've got the story figured out, the author throws in a curve ball that has you asking, "Is Micah the only one that has a secret?"

    Melody Carlson is a new author for me, but I can definitely say that after having read Trading Secrets, it won't be the last of her books that I read.

    Enjoyed This Young Adult Novel

    I really enjoyed this young adult novel. There is a nice mixture of Amish and "English" culture discussed in the book and the straightforward, first-person perspective that is used helped me feel as if I was really in the mind of the teenage girl, Micah. I know that first-person dialogue is a fairly popular way of writing young adult novels.

    I enjoyed watching Micah try to fit in with Zach's Amish family. It was refreshing to hear about what she liked and disliked. And Micah was not treated the same way by everyone in the family. Some were unhappy to have her visit, and others were very welcoming. It felt authentic to me.

    I think that Micah presents a good role model for girls reading this story. She became frustrated at the way she was being treated by some of the Amish community, however, she controlled her temper and did not say anything unkind or sarcastic toward those who gave her grief.

    The storyline is interesting and the author does a good job of portraying Micah and Zach as the older teenagers that they are. They don't always make the right decisions, but they are trying to do so and they are attempting to find out where they both belong in the world. This was a very enjoyable story. And on another note...my fourteen year old daughter borrowed this book from me before I even had a chance to read it and she absolutely loved it!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell, through The Book Club Network, in exchange for an honest review.

    Trading Secrets**** by Melody Carlson

    Micah Knight has been pen pals with Zach Miller, who is Amish, for 6 years. During that time they have become close friends, sharing their day to day lives and often their dreams. One thing Micah has not shared with Zach however is that she is a girl not a boy as her name suggests. She had always planned to tell him but as the years passed it became more difficult to find the courage to tell him. Now, she is going to actually meet Zach at his home and even help out on the farm. But what will Zach's response be when he sees her and learns that he is really a she? What will his family say? Zach and his family are shocked, to put it mildly and angry as well. Will they forgive her for her unplanned deception once she explains what happened? Can Zach and Micah's friendship survive? As the story unfolds, Micah learns a secret dream that Zach has not shared with anyone. Can she help him with his dream or will it go unfulfilled?

    This is a fun young adult story that adults will enjoy as well. Friendships are important as are honesty, there are consequences of our actions (good or bad) and forgiveness which is clearly shown in the characters lives.
