This is book two of a series. The first was free, this one and the third one are .99 each. The first book had some editing errors, I thought this one might be better, but it was worse. The profanity was less, but there was still too much. When a person buys clothing, they want it clean and holeless, buying a book is the same, It is my money and I want it with no profanity and well edited. This book shows a few flaws in the Amish way of life, but it treats the non Amish way as a terrible burden, cold, cruel, heartless, souless, without value or ethics. As people who can not see the beauty or goodness in life. I do not like this attitude at all. I was going to read the rest of the series, but this book is insulting, just because others are not Amish, does not make them bad and going to hell in a hand basket, just as being Amish does not ensue an open door into heaven. This book uses a lot of improper grammer. I guess that famed 8th grade education, in a one room school house, by untrained and uncertified teachers leaves something to be desired. This book is not stand alone, it has an abrupt, cliff hanger ending. The writting is more juvenile than the first book. It switches from first person to third and back again. Not many threads are resolved from the first book. There is a lot of out loud thinking, a near death experience with hullucinations, love is depicted as a raped and abused little girl, begging for protection, which really angered me. This book is about a tween,named Jacob, in an Amish foster home. The writing is more juvenile than the first book. Even with the profanity of the first book, I would let children as young as 12 read it if they desired to do so. At times the events in this one were senseless, with unrealistic outcomes. While not really recommending this book, I would say it was suitible for ages 16 and up. Not a chick lit or YA book. AD
