"Trading Secrets" by Melody Carlson

About this book:

  The truth may set you free—but it might also land you in some uncomfortably hot water.
  Over the years, Micah Knight has exchanged many letters—and many secrets—with her longtime Amish pen pal, Zach. But Micah’s kept quiet on the secret of all—that fact that despite her name, she’s a girl.
  Now Micah finally has the chance to meet her pen pal face-to-face. She wants nothing more than to experience life on Zach’s Amish farm, but she’s more than a little anxious. Will he be angry at her for deceiving him all these years? And will she risk losing his friendship to find something more?

Series: As of now, no. {But there needs to be a sequel!}

My personal Rating- 

I’ve enjoyed Melody Carlson’s other Amish teen books. “Trading Secrets” was interesting & I’d like to see a squeal! I really can’t say anything else because of spoilers. ;)   

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
