"Joanna's Struggle" by J.E.B. Spredemann {Day 1 of the J.E.B. Spredemann Week!}

Welcome to J.E.B. Spredemann Week! We here at BFCG will be reviewing the first four books in the “Amish Girls” series, interviewing all three authors, and having a surprise on Saturday! This will be a crazy fun week! :D

Welcome to Day 1 of the J.E.B. Spredemann week! Today we’ll be reviewing book #1, “Joanna’s Struggle”.


About this book:

  “Joanna Fisher is a typical Amish girl. She attends a one-room schoolhouse with her siblings in Paradise, Pennsylvania. She loves riding her horse, chorin' with her family, and spending time with her best friend, Chloe. But when something unexpected happens at a nearby mud sale, Joanna finds her perfect world turned upside down. Could one event change Joanna's life forever?

Series: The first book in “Amish Girls” series. {I’ll be reviewing the next three this week! :) }

Spiritual Content-  Each Chapter starts with a Scripture, so many Scriptures; Many Prayers; Talks about God, being saved, forgiveness & His Will.

Negative Content- Big spoiler that Moms should read: *Spoiler* The unexpected something that happens is that Joanna gets abducted but, thankfully gets saved at a Walmart before anything happens; That man gets a 20year sentence and learns about God & & His Merciful Love by the end of the book. *End of Spoiler*  

Sexual Content- An almost kiss between a couple that’s courting; *Spoiler* Barrett gets called a sicko for “doing wicked things to innocent little children” by his cell mates (it’s hinted that they punch him for that). *End of Spoiler*

-Joanna Fisher, age 11
                          P.O.V. switches between Joanna, Chloe, Barrett, Isaac, Gideon, Rachel, Naomi & Phillip.                                                       
                                 118 pages

 Pre Teens- 
(and a half)

New Teens-

Early High School Teens-

Older High School Teens-

My personal Rating-

Without The Lord’s Help, forgiving someone is hard. You can’t forgive anyone—truly—without Him. The Faith that Joanna has in this book is inspiring, I really enjoyed reading about her.

See y'all tomorrow with an interview! :D
