Thirteen year old Bekah Yoder loves to read, especially Nancy Drew mysteries. She is a naturally curious person (some would say nosy) and can't help wondering about some things that are happening. Like why has her cousin Amanda come to live with Bekah's family instead of her own fa

Recommends it for: Young readers
While this book is geared toward the young reader, I nevertheless enjoyed reading about a curious 13-year old Amish girl and her desire to solve a mystery. When Bekah's cousin, Amanda, is sent to live with Bekah's family, no one will tell Bekah why. She pieces together that Aunt Caroline has left Amanda & her father but still does not know why. Amanda does not want to be there and she does everything possible to not get involved in the Yoder's activities. Meanwhile, a mysterious old man ...more

Even though I am not a tweet or , I fell in love with this book. The characters where wholesome and genuine. The book was a fast read for any age group. It was about a young Amish teenager who was not your every day Amish teenager. It all starts when her cousin comes to visit not for a few days but for the entire school year. The cousin is basically dropped off as her father returns to tend to his farm. Soon enough the main character Bekah finds out why the cousin is staying so long. This is the ...more

This book is awesome! The characters were better developed than the first and the mystery was great even a little intense at some parts. This is a good read for children between 8 to 108. You're never to old to read these. Great work Kathleen Fuller. Keep up the good work.

Good for 12-13 year old girls. I liked how the characters' voices weighed their options when they had to make a choice: I think it's good for teens and preteens to see how other kids see choice and consequence, and that they actually do stop and think about things. Nice story.

I enjoyed this story but is wasn't as suspenseful as the first one. I am still looking forward to the 3rd one though.
