AND NOW...THE FIRST CHAPTER:





My thoughts:
This is a book about a young girl who is Mennonite, which if you don't know what that is...it's kinda Amish but just a little relaxed. At least that's my understanding. They allow a little bit of technology that Amish don't.

Anyways, this is book 2 in the series, The Katy Lambright Series. I hadn't read the first book before reading this but I really enjoyed the book so much I got the first book on Amazon for Kindle free. :)

Katy is going to public school and has just joined the debate team. And it seems like that's not all that's changing. Katy's father, who is not married, has met a woman who he might just make his wife. Katy doesn't like that at all. She's done just fine without a woman in her life for this long she doesn't need one now....or so she thinks.

Wonderful book of learning to open up to new possibilities!
