Living the (teen) Amish Way

Posted on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 by Nichole_TeenLit

Lately there has been a surge in the release of teen books about being Amish. I find that these books are very well researched and offer a glimpse into an unfamiliar, but intriguing world. Teens really enjoy reading about other teens with unique and different lifestyles, and frankly sometimes they need a break from all the vampires and werewolves (although I promise the next blog entry will be about paranormal activity). Check out these new books about being a teen and Amish.

A World Away A World Away

Sixteen-year-old Eliza, an Amish girl, goes to work for an "English" family as a nanny to two young children, and must then choose between two entirely different ways of life.

Temptation Temptation

But I love Noah. And he loves me. We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in those moments in each other's arms. It should be Rose & Noah forever, but it won't be. Because he's Amish. And I'm not.

Reckless Heart Reckless Heart

Under pressure to care for her siblings and household and work two jobs, sixteen-year-old Lydia gets tipsy on beer at a youth gathering, but keeping that secret from her Amish community on top of everything else may cause her to lose all that matters.
