Trading Secrets by Melody Carlson

Micah Knight and Zach have been penpals for many, many years since the fifth grade. Zach is of the amish lifestyle which is so much different from the modern way of things.  She recieves a letter in the mail saying that Zach wants to visit her, she starts freaking out because all this time she has been hiding a secret. 

Indeed Micah Knight was a girl despite her name. Micah volunteers to go to Zach's family farm instead of him coming to her place because of the family crops needing tending to. She knows that Zach is a big part of the family life and the responsible older son. 

She worries that he will be angry and never be able to forgive her. I do not wanna spoil the book for anyone but I will just leave you with this: Will he be able to forgive the deception or will he not? 

The thing that got me to read this book was the opening tag line.....

"The truth may set you free---but it might also land you in some uncomfortably hot water."

I give this book a three. I feel that Melody could have build up the suspense a little bit more like she has in some of her other books. Melody Carlson is one of my favorite writers. I would highly recommend her Chloe and Kaitlyn series over this book but it was good for a laugh.
