    By Melody Carlson

    Publi: Revell c. 2014

    Sixteen-year-old Shannon McNamara has her summer all planned as she heads home on the last day of school. She has 3 goals: get her drivers license, get a summer job, and get a tattoo on her ankle.

    When she steps into the hall where her apartment is located her summer plans explode. The neighbor who has been helping care for her sick mother Anna catches her before she can make it to her apartment. Anna and Mrs. Wimple have been talking that day and decided since Mrs. Wimple will be out of town for a while Shannon and her mother need to go to Annas parents in Ohio so Shannon will have someone to help her care for Anna. The tickets have been bought, transportation to the bus station has been arranged, and someone is lined up to pick them up at the bus station in Ohio to take them to Annas parents.

    Shannon is first of all shocked that she has living relatives other than her mom. Her dad has died years before leaving just Anna and Shannon or so she thought. When she arrives in Ohio not only is she shocked at the extent of family, but she is speechless to find out they are Amish. She finds out that her mom left her Amish family when she was 15 and hasnt had any contact with them since.

    Shortly after arriving Shannon meets Ezra Troyer. He is all the things she had dreamed of for the perfect boyfriend, except she never pictured herself with an Amish boyfriend. Shannon begins to dream about life as an Amish bride with Ezra by her side.

    Because of the friction her non-Amish lifestyle and dress cause the family she begins to wear Amish-style clothes and to take part in the life of the family. She seeks to learn more about what the Amish believe and the lifestyle they live. This only causes her to dream more about life as an Amish bride.

    Shannons mother continues to decline so Shannon arranges to take her to the doctor in Ohio. The exam and further tests reveal that Anna has a major health issue that needs immediate attention.

    In the midst of Annas health crisis Shannon is forced to take a good look at her life and what she wants out of it. She faces her feelings about Ezra, about being Amish, about her family, and about her relationship with God.

    This is a wonderful book about a young girl as she comes to grips with growing up. I highly recommend this book not only for young people but also for adults. It is eye3-opening, honest, soul-searching, and thoroughly entertaining.

    I was provided a copy of this book through The Book Club Network for my unbiased review.

    This review was written for My Amish Boyfriend: A Novel - eBook.
    Melody Carlson really had me worried for a while there, but I'm glad I stuck at it till the finish. I'm certainly not part of the 'target audience' and I'm sure young teenage girls would have enjoyed this book. I found the first person approach a little daunting, but younger readers might see it as reading a series of journal entries or blogs. I was disappointed to see the main character in compromising situations at the tender age of 16, but relieved when she realized how wrong it all was. Some parts of the story seemed a bit far fetched and a bit too easy, but given the target audience, perhaps this is appropriate. I still enjoyed this nice easy read.

    This is an entertaining read by talented author Melody Carlson. Teenager Shannon and her ill mother are sent off to live with Amish relatives. Shannon had no idea she was related to Amish and goes through major culture shock. She stays with her grandparents and gets to experience an authentic Amish life. Through her experiences, we see a stark contrast between modern living in the "world" and the traditional Amish way of life.

    I was shocked by the Amish teenagers' behavior through their "sowing their oats" phase of life. This included some use of alcohol. It saddened me. But made me realize that whether Amish or not, people can suffer from destructive behavior. I loved reading about Shannon's days living among the Amish and how her mother was able to recover from her illness.

    Overall, I think this book would most appeal to teenagers. They would be greatly entertained and would also enjoy the experiences and lessons in the story.

    My Amish Boyfriend is an entertaining book. Melody Carlson is a fantastic author and this book did not disappoint me. The book revolves around Shannon,a teenager, who had her summer vacation plans thrown a curve by her mother's illness. Her mother decided to spend the summer with her parents, Shannon's grandparents. Shannon had no idea her mother used to be Amish. This leads to culture shock initially and quite an adjustment in way of life for Shannon. Along the way she meets a boy and has a summer romance. The book is very entertaining for both teens and adults.

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