I am so excited! Today I was approved for this awesome title, AMISH GUYS DON’T CALL by Debby Dodds!! Will you just check out this cover??
Sam has never really come to terms with her parents’ divorce, so when her world crashes down on her in the form of cyberbullying and Zach’s apparent return to the Amish community, she reverts to old, illegal habits. Does Sam even want friends like these? And, will her crossed-cultural love with Zach find a way?
Madison and I couldn’t help but stare at the group of teens in odd-fitting clothes shuffling into the movie theatre lobby. Huddled so close together, they moved almost like a single organism. A dead giveaway of their status as Plain Folks: the guys sported bowl haircuts, and the girls had hair hanging down past their armpits. One girl’s was pulled severely into two braids that hung almost to her elbows, without any sense of irony.
Standing in line at concessions, we watched them scurry by. Madison wiggled her eyebrows at me. “Look, even the Amish girls have boyfriends, Sam!” Madison nudged me a little, teasing. I smiled at her, stealing another glance at the backs of the Amish kids, because surreptitious subgroups of society have always intrigued me.
What do you think? Doesn’t it sound so stinking cute and fun? I can’t wait to start reading!! Be on the lookout for my review in June!!
