This book had 89 pages of story. 3 pages of other material. There is a lot of profanity, but at least the f word is not one of them. There is a pretty bad child spanking, which was deserved and which is the only violence. This book shows flaws in the Amish way of life and thinking, but at the same time it depicts the non Amish way of life as completely terrible, with no good points what so ever. This book is open ended, which I abhor. It is part of a series. The next book is only a bit longer and costs .99. It too is a cliff hanger. I did not investigate book three. Other than the profanity and a very chaste kiss, there are no adult themes. A boy, possibly a tween, is into mayham and is sent as a foster child to live with an Amish family. I enjoyed this short story. It could use some editing. For ages 12 and up. But this is not a juvenile or YA book. AD

To have been written by a supposed amish person, this short(92 page) novellete was full of curse words. It took a long time to build up to anything remotely interesting, then it just ended on a cliffhanger. I guess the author expects you to pay high dollar for her other short story novellets but dont waste your time. Its not worth it. This story isnt remotely anything like the amish or their way of life.

Jacob didn't have the easiest of lives. Group home wasn't working for him and he didn't feel anybody cared. When he got sent to an Amish family he felt it was the end, then he started to like it and got accused of doing something bad and sent away. Can't wait to read thenext story
