    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.

    Since the school year has ended, teenaged Shannon McNamara's goal is to get a tattoo, her drivers license, and a summer job. Because of her mother's serious health condition Shannon and her mom travel to Ohio to stay with Amish relatives. Shannon's grandparents are not the most welcoming, and numerous challenges ensue. Shannon falls in love with a local Amish boy, and her summer plans appear to be looking up. She becomes interested in possibly becoming Amish; however, her mother's health is rapidly declining and their challenges grow serious.

    Written more specifically for teens and young adults this story of outsiders moving into an Amish community is appealing to all ages. Melody Carlson paints beautiful scenes of the Amish countryside, and presents the Amish realistically and with expertise. Her characters are unique and original. The story is written in the first person through Shannon's perspective which I found a bit unsuited for my taste, because the level of maturity from her point of view was far more advanced than a typical teenager. This is only my opinion. Others may love this perspective and not have a problem with it. The story moves at a fast pace, and the developments that take place keep the reader turning the pages to see what the outcome will be. My Amish Boyfriend is an enjoyable light read.
