Trading Secrets By Melody Carlson

Back in fifth grade, Micah Knight got an Amish pen pal, and over the years, they've exchanged many letters--and many secrets. At age seventeen, Micah finally has the chance to meet her pen pal face-to-face. The only problem is that because of confusion about her name when the pen pals were assigned, her pen pal was a boy, Zack Miller. And all this time, Micah's never told Zack that she's actually a girl! While she wants nothing more than to experience life on Zack's Amish farm, she's afraid he'll hate her for deceiving him all these years. But she makes up her mind to face the music--and that's where the fun really begins.
Bestselling author Melody Carlson brings young adults another fascinating tale of worlds colliding, secrets being revealed, and friendships forming. Teens will love this story of miscommunication and mishaps along the way to the truth.

This was a really good young adult book. I  have enjoyed many of Melody's books in the past I seem to enjoy the young adults just as much as the adult books.
I enjoyed reading about Micah and Zach and the trouble that seemed to be brewing.
I very good story for those of you who enjoy Amish fiction and want to share it with your kids or grandkids.
