Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—In this volume (Barbour Pub., 2009) by Wanda Brunstetter, 11-year-old Rachel is having a problem with eavesdropping and the resultant rumors, leading to all sorts of misunderstandings, some comical, others more serious. When she overhears a comment about her brother's health and inadvertently spreads a rumor that he is dying, she realizes that listening in on other people's conversations can be harmful to herself and to others. Rachel's adventures are set in a modern Amish settlement, but young listeners will easily identify with her moods and mishaps. The plot seems repetitive at times, as Rachel makes the same mistake over and over again without learning from her experiences. The story is sprinkled with Pennsylvania Dutch words and phrases which are glossed over in the print edition, but are immediately translated in the audiobook by narrator Ellen Grafton who provides a youthful delivery. This story often refers to events in earlier books, so purchase only where the previous volumes are available.—Misti Tidman, Boyd County Public Library, Ashland, KY
