Katy's New World

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Books about the Amish and Mennonites are always interesting.   In this one Katy, a 14 year old Mennonite girl, is given permission to attend the public high school. She is given all kinds of rules  by her church leaders and her single parent father.  Katy struggles with wanting to learn and also fit in with some of her classmates.  The reader really gets  a feel for the kind of life the Mennonites live.   It is a young adult book but also of interest to adults and probably good 4th and 5th readers.
